I am going to Alguero next month and I have 5 days to visit the island. I would like to know if there is good public transportation to get the best places to visit. If anybody has more information or perhaps some web page about it, please tell me. Ah! and other curiosity: Is it true some people there speak catalan already? Thanks! jordi barcelona, catalonia
Hi Jordi, The dialect still spoken in Alghero it's Catalan as it was spoken in the XVI-XVII century. I think it will sound familiar to you. Stefano
From Alghero itself public transport is very good,but the airport is 10 mins car drive from the town.If you're travelling with Ryan Air, the busses did not connect with the flights when we went in November, so we pre-arranged a taxi with the hotel owner.It's a wonderful place for a short break.Enjoy!
