travelling from the airport
the airport is at Fertilia approx 5/6 km from Alghero.
There isn't a train service into town,and although the local no 9 bus does go into town in only runs every two hours.
therefore the only way to get into town is by taxi AND BEWARE it is 25 euros.
When in a hurry...
Service is not the fastest so if you are in a hurry to leave, make sure you ask for the bill well in advance. At some restaurants you may not see the waiter again after he has taken your plate away after the main course, so make sure you order everything you want every time he/she comes over!
Be aware that most, if not all of the garages close for a couple of hours in the afternoon, and have only a automatic pump available which takes notes only. This can be very awkward if like us you've got to fill up your hire car before returning it.

if you park on blue spaces you will get a ticket on your windscreen from a scruffy student in a high viz jacket, pay the small charge to them or park elsewhere!
