Sassari, Alghero and the Gulf of Asinara

Itinerary idea

First of all, you cannot miss visiting the historic center of Sassari.

A completely pedestrian itinerary that allows you to visit the city and its wonders.

If you want to go further and you have a car at your disposal, you can take an itinerary of about 140 km between Sassari and Alghero.

Going from Sassari to Porto Torres, you will find Monte D’Accoddi, a prehistoric sanctuary, where you can pay a visit.

It is worth visiting this imposing pre-Nuragic complex, made of stones and earth, with a sacrificial stone at the top.
Absolutely not to be missed Stintino and its beaches.

Continuing after Stintino you will meet on your way, Argentiera. In the past it was an excellent mining center for the extraction of lead and zinc, it was active until the 1950s.

It is worth visiting Cala dell’Argentiera, a beautiful beach with crystal clear sea.
Following Porto Torres, where you can enjoy splendid views.

Take a trip to the island of Asinara

And then you cannot miss the island of Asinara.
Admire its wonders. On the island you can find a series of trails suitable for everyone, all seeing fantastic unspoiled beaches such as Cala Sabina or Cala d’Oliva.

Another pedestrian itinerary not to be missed is a walk in Alghero.

Elegant city that offers incredible sunsets to admire from the Ramparts where we recommend you to taste a Catalan lobster, a local specialty.

They say that Alghero’s lobsters are the finest in the world.

They are fished with traditional methods and fishing is allowed only from April to August.

In short, on this itinerary you can admire many wonders and taste delicious food and wines.

Plan your trip considering also enjoying moments even sitting by the sea at sunset or to taste some delicacies in total relax.

If you get the chance, buy some local cheese or sweets, and you will smell the scent of Sardinian tradition.

Search among the local activities where to sleep, where to eat and possible excursions.
