If you choose to fly into Alghero airport, Alghero is well worth a visit.

Alghero is one of those places that the italians have been happy to keep to themselves. Tucked away on the north-western coast of the island of Sardinia, this fishing spot remains unspoilt and mostly devoid of the package holiday crowds. One look at the medieval old town with its mighty stone wall and seven surrounding watchtowers, and you'll likely be keeping quiet about it to.
