      Planning on renting a car

      Sardegna Yesterday

      Hi there,
      We are planning on taking a ferry from mainland Italy to Olbia. From Olbia, we have to get to Palau, which is 45 minutes away.
      I was "strongly recommended" to rent a car. Does anyone know if we'd be better off renting a car in Olbia, or bringing one on the ferry from mainland Italy?
      I looked into renting a car in Olbia, and the prices were outrageous (we need one for 5 days.) Does anyone know which rental company I should look into, and how much we can expect to pay?

    • Alghero for teenagers...

      by KathyJoe Online Now Mar 2, 2015 at 6:52 PM

      What is Alghero like for teenage boys. We will be travelling with a 16 and 14 year old. They are very active - love soccer, surfing, skating. They'll need a bit of freedom if they are to have a good time. Is Alghero safe for them to go off on their own? Are there parks where they can kick a ball around? A beach they can go swimming at? Also what is Sardegna like generally for cycling from place to place...

    • Free camp site?

      by Sakichan Online Now May 29, 2014 at 3:45 PM

      Hi There!
      We are planning to visit Alghero in a week time.
      This is our first visit to Alghero and we have all the camping gears so thinking to camp there.
      I heard there is some free camp site, although I couldn't find any on google..
      If anybody know any nice camp site,either free or not,please let me know!
      We are pretty easy going, so as long as we can enjoy beach and sleep nicely
      we don't want any luxurious thing!
      Would be great if you know somewhere not too busy and loud though.

      Thank you.

    • Transport from Airport - around midnight

      by Anne1305 Online Now May 15, 2014 at 6:28 AM

      Hi there,
      we will arrive at Alghero Airport very late in the evening (23:55 p.m). Does anybody know a good transportation then - the busses are running only until 23:00 pm and as far as I figured out the car rentals are closing also at 23:00 pm and you have to pay extra fee then if you still want to rent a car. How much would a taxi cost and is it wise to reserve one in advance? Any recommendations would be highly appreciated.

      I"m in my 70s and like walking when there is something nice to see. I understand that the Alghero train station is a 20 minute walk to centre, is this walk worth looking at or would i be better taking the bus from Sassari, i believe the bus goes to Alghero centre. Thanks.

    • getting around in a wheelchair in Alghero

      by Pistolee Online Now Mar 26, 2010 at 2:02 PM


      My girlfriend and me are planning a trip to Alghero from 3 to 8 June.

      I am using a wheelchair (a "manual" chair) and my girlfriend pushes me around (I have limited power so I can only take small distances myself).

      So my question is: is Alghero wheelchair friendly? Are there modifications foreseen in the streets, musua etc?

      What about public transport? Are buses accessible or should we take a taxi for getting around?

      Any advice for wheelchair accessible hotels maybe?

      Thanks a lot for any info!

      Also, i would like to book a table for us (we are 16 people) in Miques de Mirral and also a bar called El Tro, but i can't find any phone numbers for them. Does anyone have a phone number for Miques de Mirall bar or El Tro?

    • Borrowing a guitar in Alghero

      by SalMorrison Online Now May 27, 2009 at 5:10 AM

      Hi there

      Ok this is a really random request! I've been asked to play guitar at a friend's wedding in Alghero in September. I'm having second thoughts about taking a guitar on a plane (heard horror stories about this and Ryanair won't let you take a guitar as hand luggage, you're supposed to book a separate seat for it!!!).

      I wondered if anyone could help advise what the likelihood of borrowing a guitar when I'm there would be? Or if anyone knows someone there that I could possibly borrow one from?

      Any help would be much appreciated.
