    The boats to visit the Nettuno Caves leave from the main harbour. There is a ticket counter where the small yatches are, selling tickets for the many trips to the caves.
    Ask first, as if the sea is not calm, the boats could be cancelled.

    Does your suitcase need a suntan?

    by BarryBraund Written Oct 6, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We were surprised to see a lot of people at the end of their holiday, wheeling their suitcases to the beach because they had several hours before their evening flight home. I found out from the Tourist Information Office that there was a 'left luggage office' at the Railway Station (only a few minutes walk from the Lido beach), which cost only a couple of Euros (?) for the day. We spent the last day on the beach, walked back to the railway station, and took a taxi to the airport. It's a lot less hassle!

    Bicycles

    by gildapaolina Updated Jul 11, 2008

    I think bicycle is the most appropriate vehicle to get a trip in town or surroundings. Alghero get plain streets, so using a bicycle can be really a pleasure especially on the seaside. So, if you're not travelling with your own bike, why don't you rent one? Prices start from 3.00 euro/hour

    There are about 4 local buses routes running around alghero,which one you catch depends which area yr staying in,but they all run into the old town gateway.
    on arrival in alghero get a bus timetable from the tourist information centre or hotel.(times are not shown on the bus stop boards)
    you cannot pay on buses you have to buy tickets in advance from either the hotel or the many tabbacconists. only about 60 eurocents a trip. when you get on bus you put the ticket into a slot of machine which prints on time and date (its a bit tricky and some times needs a bit of jiggling)

    Taxi hunter !

    Taxi rank just to the left of this picture!

    The taxi rank is just off to the left of the picture (Tourist Information Centre pictured) Via Vittorio Emanuele II opposite thelarge bank, Banca Nazionale di Lavoro.
    We once needed a taxi in a hurry and I had earlier noticed that not one taxi had appeared during a 45 minute spell ! I procured a taxi company phone number and got one - it was the same guy who had run us ion from the airport ot the hotel ! Now, there is more than one cab driver in Sardinia, but, do take care as their appearacnes can be a bit ....sporadic !
    If you have a plane or a train to catch, be sure to phone !

    As in many towns where tourists flock, the colourful little tourist train will be found!

    Alghero has it’s own brightly coloured yellow & red train! For a few Euros you can take a guided historical tour through the narrow streets of the old town & also ride along the road alongside the beach.

    All for fun & educational too!

    Car Hire

    by Brit-a-broad Written Feb 23, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    we also hired a car from www.autonoleggiosardinya.it (Thanks for the tip littlebush) We booked it over the internet, and picked It up and paid for it at the airport, it was only £56 pounds for two days and was great.
    The roads in this part of Sardinia are quiet, and the drive from Alghero to Bosa is breathtaking.

    Need a Car

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    life in a hammock

    To get to Alghero from Londom, wait for Ryanair to do their deals(I should be on commission you know!), we went for £49 but I know you cna go as low as £30!

    You need a car to really explore the north west of Sardinia, in the Alghero region. There are buses but you wont get to all the good parts. Car hire is cheap. It cost us 64 euros for 2 days for a small fiat panda which is al you need on thsi island. Driving is fantastic, not a sole on the roads, the scenery is fantastic, the sun shining, absolutely perfect!
    fuel is cheap too. We hired from www.autonoleggiosardinya.it
    If you do use buses, they are dead cheap, 88cents from porto conte to alghero!

    We arrived to the island by plane directly from Madrid with Ryanair. The airport is not far from the city, like 15-20 minutes. There are public buses that leave every hour or so.

    On the contrary to thomasbentley I strongly recommend not using Autonolotaxis Ferris.
    Our experience is the following:
    One month after I found a charge in my credit card from Autonolotaxis Ferris. Suprised I called them to clarify what should be a mistake. I could not believe his words, he claimed that since we didn't fill up the petrol tank (which was totally false) that amount was charged to my credit card.
    I couldn't understand how it was possible since I didn't sing any invoice. After a formal complain through the consumer centre I received the ticket of the petrol station with one date and the invoice with my signature forget with an earlier date. We noticed 3 things:
    1) The date of the petrol ticket was later to the date of my payment authorisation, how is that possible?
    2) My signature was forged
    3) The number of the invoice with the forged signature is consecutive to the first invoice of the car rental.

    My assumption is that as they use the old fashioned credit card swipe devices, when you arrive and give your credit card, they simply swipe two invoices (that is why the numbers are consecutive). Then when you are back home after one month you receive a charge for which you have no idea. If you don't pay attention they trick you.
    We are still dealing with this issue but doesn't seem easy as the credit card company says that it is signed by me...moreover they don't want to pay attention to my remarks.

    My recommendation is the following: DO NOT USE AUTONOTAXIS FERRIS.
    If it happens that you use it, pay great attention to your credit card afterwards.

    I have proof of all this and will post if other people have found irregularities with this company.
    Please, let others know if you have experienced something similar. This place smells fishy...
