Built surrounding a 16th-century fortified port, Alghero remains one of Sardinia's most visited sites, rich in cultural and historical heritage.
Step out of Alghero to go to Stintino and see La Pelosa Beach, which is approximately 58 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: explore the fascinating underground world of Frecce delle Grotte di Antonio Piccinnu, take in panoramic vistas at Torre del Lazzaretto, enjoy the sand and surf at Spiaggia Mugoni, and do a tasting at Azienda Agricola Leda' d'Ittiri.

To plan Alghero vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Washington DC, USA to Alghero is an approximately 16-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight; or do a combination of flight, train, and bus. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 6 hours traveling from Washington DC to Alghero. Plan for a bit cooler nights when traveling from Washington DC in September since evenings lows in Alghero dip to 60°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 10th (Tue) so you can go by car to Palau.
