Description

Departing from Cagliari, you will have a 2.5-hour drive in a minivan through the amazing Sardinian countryside towards the northwest of the island. Explore one of Sardinia’s most beautiful medieval cities on a tour of Alghero, the island’s main resort town in the northwest.

Discover its unique character and proud, independent spirit. The historic center is a lively hangout, with plenty of excellent restaurants and bars. We will focus on the picturesque Centro Storico, one of the best-preserved in Sardinia. An Oasis cased in honey-colored sea landscapes with cobbled lanes, Gothic Palaces and piazzas lined with cafés that you can enjoy in the shade.

Explore these quaint sights with an expert local guide on a stroll through the city center. You will be taken to see Capo Caccia and the Neptune Caves, one of the most fascinating natural jewels in the entire Mediterranean basin, the grotto is a authentic geological wonder that attracts over 150,000 visitors per year. It is accessible by sea leaving the tourist port every day, or on foot via Escala del Cabirol (Billy Goat Stairs), a set of 660 steps cut into the cliff side.

The tour begins on Lago Lamarmora (Lake Lamarmora) and its transparent waters, one of the largest saltwater lakes in all of Europe.

You will see the “Acquasantiera”(The Stoup, used as a baptismal font), a monumental stalagmite of about 2-meter (6.56 ft) of height; On its peaks, rainwater accumulates in naturally formed vats that are a precious source of potable water for birds nesting in the Capo Caccia area.

You will then see a famous archaeological site where a nuraghe (a type of ancient megalithic edifice found in Sardinia) and necropolis are located.

Your local guide will be keen on making the tour as personal as possible. They will assist you with their expertise and tell you fascinating anecdotes before bringing you back to your hotel.
