Cagliari: Full-Day Alghero Private Experience

3. Cagliari: Full-Day Alghero Private Experience

Departing from Cagliari, drive for 2.5-hours 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 an animated place to hang out, with many excellent restaurants and bars. It's an ideal base for exploring the beaches and beauty spots of the nearby Riviera del Corallo. The main focus of attention will be the picturesque centro storico (historic center), one of the best preserved in Sardinia. Enclosed by robust, honey-colored sea walls, it's a tightly knit enclave of shady, cobbled lanes, Gothic palazzi (palaces) and piazzas lined with cafes. Discover the historical center with an expert local guide on a stroll through the city center. Discover Capo Caccia and the Neptune Caves, one of the most fascinating natural jewels in the entire Mediterranean basin, the grotto is a veritable 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 will begin at the great room holding the transparent waters of Lago Lamarmora (Lake Lamarmora), one of the largest saltwater lakes in all of Europe. It is there that Acquasantiera stands (the baptismal font), a monumental stalagmite that is approximately 2 meters high; its peaks have formed vats, where rainwater collects, thereby forming a precious drinking fountain for birds nesting in the Capo Caccia area. After a brief descent, you will reach the Sala delle Rovine (Room of Ruins) and after this, the Majestic Reggia, the most evocative area of the grotto. Impressive and overwhelming columns arise in this room, almost holding up the ceiling. Among the large flowstone and "scallop" formations, the distinctive stalagmite formation known as the Albero di Natale (Christmas Tree) stands out. The lake comes to end at a sandy beach called the Spiaggia dei Ciottolini (Pebble Beach) because at one time it was made up of tiny stones. After the Reggia, you will find Sala Smith (Smith Room), where the Grande Organo (Great Organ) can be found, the largest column in the entire grotto. This room is named after the English captain who in the early 1800s had been one of the first to explore the grotto. After having taken in the small columns that adorn the Sala delle Trine e dei Merletti (The Lace Room), the route will come to an end with a view of Tribuna della Musica (The Music Gallery), an evocative balcony from which you can enjoy the view from above the Reggia area and Lake Lamarmora.

What people are saying about Province of Sassari

It was a unique and wonderful experience! Mr. Antonio showed us places to take your breath away, terrestrial paradises with intense colors, impossible to forget! We left on time and our first stop was the "doctor's beach" where we took our first swim and we reached the shore. We were provided with masks to better admire the bottom and the many fish around us. Then we headed to the flat island for a second swim, got back on board, we had an aperitif (kindly offered) with soft drinks and savory and sweet snacks. As a third stop we sailed under the walls of Tavolara, greeted the statue of the Madonna protector of fishermen and then chose the place to take a last dip and eat the ice cream purchased from one boat to another. Thanks especially to Mr. Antonio for his kindness, shrewdness and sympathy, a really sunny and sociable person.

I can definitely recommend this trip. In approximately 4 hours Antonio, the very friendly tour guide, showed us a variety of snorkeling spots (30 minutes at each spot) and we also got the chance to see 5 dolphins swimming around our boat. We got offered snacks and cold drinks and our guide had a lot of little fun facts and informations around different spots of the island. Worth the money and an awesome experience. Thank you!

The skipper showed us beautiful places and was very friendly, helpful and courteous. At the end he distributed a Sardinian snack (very tasty)! Overall a great afternoon in perfect surroundings! We also saw dolphins, which makes the trip complete!

We spent half a day with Antonio, a very attentive and professional skipper! A great time!

Everything top guide was very nice everything top.
