We absolutely loved our evening wine tasting. It was €17 to try four delicious wines and the host was so lovely and informative. Don’t worry if you’re driving – it was fine to taste just a little bit of each wine (although I wish I…MoreThank you so much for the nice review and for spending some time to share the experience with TA Readers, we really appreciate it.

Not for the faint hearted 695 steps each way down a very steep cliff to the sea and caves. Unfortunately for us there was not a guided tour vacancy available half an hour. If you have a problem with heights or walking up and down steep steps then don’t venture down to the sea and caves.

Nuraghe Sant'Antine

Reviewed By DunelmArts – Aberdeen, United Kingdom

I hadn’t heard of the Nuragic civilisation before my visit to Sardinia, but once discovered I was fascinated. This is the best site we visited, very atmospheric and unlike anything I’d seen before. I loved Sant’ Antine. It was amazing exploring the interior corridors and climbing the steps the Nuragic people had traversed thousands of years ago. The views from the top of the tower are beautiful too. It may not look much from the outside, but inside it’s a different story. Worth a visit, you won’t be disappointed.
Purchase your ticket €6 across the road at the visitor centre. They also have a little cafe and gift shop there too. Ample parking.

Parco Nazionale Asinara

Reviewed By ClairefromUK

We booked a trip through the company which runs the beach bus from Alghero.
It’s Cattognoviaggi or Cattognobus and their office is near the beach on the corner near the main road – via Degli Orti, 1
We popped in and booked the excursion to Isola dell’Asinara for €63pp which included coach collection, the boat, tour guide on The Green Train.
(There are other excursions for the Red Train.)
We paid for the return bus €15 pp at the office. Once collected by coach the driver gave us a written confirmation that the trip had been reserved.
Upon arrival at the port, just before you reach the boat you pay the remainder of the monies due. It was well organised and you were given a green band to wear for the duration of the trip, this was returned upon departure. The coach driver waits for the boat to arrive before departing.
The boat across to the island was about 25mins. There is a small shop upon arrival for food/drinks. Toilets cost 50cent€. The train and your guide then travel across the island. Our guide was informative and gave commentary in Italian & English.
We stopped at the prison and went inside.
Along the route we were given the option to alight the train about 400m from the picnic stop as part of our lunch break, then walk to meet the rest of the tour before departure. The visit the turtle rescue centre which was €2.50pp. Today they had 3 tanks, each containing an injured Turtle. The staff member told the story of why each was there, in Italian and then English.
During out trip we spotted several white donkeys. We were told about several plants and historical information relating to the island.
We had a 2 hour stop before our return for some swimming. The water looked very inviting and appeared shallow. There were a few fish so if you choose to swim take a towel and a snorkel!!
Personally I found the beach area below the standard/size I was expecting. Parts of the area had broken glass and there were many rocks. There were 2 trains in convoy so a lot of people sharing a small area with no shade was not to my liking.
I did notice upon leaving, if you walked up the hill about 50m, there were picnic benches under the shade of the trees.
During the trip we could not find any leaflets in English. To be better informed you could do a search on the Island before going.
Amazing landscape and history.
Approx timings: Bus from Alghero departed approx 8am, boat about 10am, return boat 5.30pm bus returned 6pm and back into Alghero by 7.30pm.
It seemed easier to book this tour rather than do it independently given the distant to travel when you are relying on public transport.

Gelateria Slurp

Reviewed By Catalpa77 – Province of Piacenza, Italy

Always busy and you can find lots of people queuing up for gelato.It means that the gelato keeps very fresh all the time.
The materials, milk, chocolate, nuts and fruits are in good quality. Flavors vary from basic choices to Sth not very common everywhere. The gelato is smooth and comparetivly light, perfect for summer. I love Menta and Pinolatte!
If you want to choose one gelateria from the city, I recommend Slurp!

Basilica San Gavino

Reviewed By masterecho – London, United Kingdom

At first review, Porto Torres appeared to offer little for a cruise ship visitor. Sardinia’s main town and capital is Cagliari, over 200 kilometres and two and half hours away, at the other end of the island and the train service too irregular to be of use for a departure at 18.00.
We were, however, pleasantly surprised with the place.
The local tourist representative provided a map and indicated the location of a couple of museums, one being archaeological. Leaving the quayside, we had been greeted by vendors promoting a nearby pop-up food market, whilst the main street, Corso Vittorio Emanuele ll had been closed to traffic and was filled with craft stalls, which we decided to browse later after first visiting the closed Maritime railway station. Leaving here, we continued to the new one, consulted the timetable, and abandoned any idea of straying outside Porto Torres, made doubly difficult as it was Easter Saturday.

The commercial harbour is unsuitable for yachts, but at the smaller, eastern end, where the Ferries berth, there are two small basins at the south east end which have been gentrified and converted into Marinas, the Marina di Porto Torres and Marina Cormorano. Walking past this there is a beach and this offers a pleasant walk.

Evidence of the abandoned port infrastructure can be seen in the residue of railway tracks in the road, leading to the abandoned Maritime station that no longer links to Ferries, though the latter still operate.
We retraced our steps back from the train station to the main street, Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, and decided to head first to the Basilica di San Gavino some distance away, just off the opposite end of Corso Vittorio Emanuele II.

However the first place we came across that looked of some interest was La Chiesa Della Beata Vergine Della Consolata, (the Church of the Blessed Virgin of Consolation). It is a small, almost square-shaped church set back off the Corso Vittorio Emanuele II on the right hand side of the street, coming from the port.

Churches can be interesting places in themselves by virtue of the architectural styles they represent, whilst their degree of ornateness indicates the wealth lavished on their construction and so the affluence of (at least) some of those who funded construction. As it was Easter Saturday, the church displayed symbols of the crucifixion and resurrection.
Leaving this little church we continued our walk up the main street to find the Basilica. This is set on higher ground, and is typical of similar building across Western Europe whose origins date back to the 11th century. Floral displays and with a half risen Jesus on the cross were in front of the altar, no doubt, all part of the commemorations for Easter Saturday.
After spending half an hour or so in the church, we then retraced our steps to return to the port and to see what the craft stalls had to offer. Many were unusual and quirky, and many home-made objects for babies made of shells and other materials, but all quite expensive. We were not tempted to buy, so it was back to the ship after a couple of hours of perambulation around this pleasant, unpretentious town.

Le Ragnatele

I have an adventure park in Alghero (Sardinia, Italy).It offers children and adults the opportunity to try out tree top adventure courses along high wire trails that you can find at different heights thanks to hanging platforms, steel cables, Tibetan Bridges, cable ways on pulleys, ropes and rope-ladders. All this is achieved whilst respecting the highest safety standards

This place took us by surprise! It was a highlight of a two month trip for our family (two boys, ages 6 and 8). Our “briefing” regarding the use of our equipment was conducted in Italian, but a very brief “briefing” was relayed in English. It was enough to get our kids comfortable using the equipment. We spent two solid hours with our kids testing their courage, physical capabilities and team work. It was great fun, well run and we would highly recommend this place!

Cattedrale di Sant'Antonio Abate e Museum Ampuriense

Reviewed By SunriseSki – Singapore

Nice walk in the narrow streets around the main hill.
Better leave the car down and walk up the stairs to the top of the hill where from a fortress-like construction you can overlook the town, it’s port, and the coast on both sides, During the Summer it is a hot climb, and by the time you reach the top, you’ll be probably soaked wet. Even inside the churches (which are all quite nice and give a true impression of local culture and history) it is not much cooler. There a few souvenir shops and several restaurants. People are nice and welcoming, it is worthwhile to stop for a bite, some drinks, continue for a short walk in the maze of small roads were around every corner you wonder what might come. We enjoyed this town a lot.
