==Get around==
This historic town has become one of the most popular destinations for visitors to Sardinia. The car free narrow lanes of the atmospheric old town contain numerous bars and cafes whilst the restaurants are renowned for excellent seafood. The surrounding area brings many delights for those who venture out of the city. These include the famous beaches at La Pelosa - Stintino, the eerily abandoned mining town of Argentiera and the ancient palace complex at Nuraghe di Palmavera.
The coastal road south of Alghero is beautiful, an unspoilt and protected panorama of sparkling sea, lush vegetation , and rocky mountains. It leads to Bosa, a small medieval town, which has a distinctive and living historic centre center and many points of interest. Bosa is an ideal spot for a relaxing holiday, as it is friendly and has a character and economy which is not based solely on tourism.

As in most parts of Italy food in Alghero is an important thing. The town's fishing port provides seafood fresh from the sea. Make sure that you try Catalan lobster, lobster salad with raw tomatoes and onion. Ricci (sea urchins) are also very popular in Alghero with a festival being held in their honor around febraio sagraFebruary during the "Boga MarinSagra del Bogamarì". A good restaurant where you can try typical dishes is 'Al Vecchio Mulino' the same management for 30 years [http://www.alvecchiomulinoalghero.com] For a vegetarian and typical dishes go to Farm holiday Bonsai Alghero [http://www.bonsaialghero.com] near the airport.
