So even though it was winter, yes it was in March, Alghero still does not loose its charm.

Even with jacket or jumper, Alghero is a terrific place to see in winter! Just hope the winter sun is out!

It is of course too cold to swim, but if you want to walk on the beach, this is maybe the perfect time because the beach is so quiet and empty.

This is Maria Pia beach in Alghero. It is so pristine with clear blue water.

And it is covered with white sands too. The view is fantastic! You can see mountainous Sardinia from the beach!

My husband and I decided to try an Italian restaurant by the sea. Amazing tasty food.

We stay in Alghero City Hotel. The hotel is okay, a typical standard Italian hotel.

We went to Porta Terra tower, and climb up the tower until we see this panoramic view!

We also went to Museo Diocesano d’Arte Sacra and we saw fantastic religious Italian antiques such as silver and statue. Worth to visit if you are into Italian or religious antiques.

When you order drink at any cafe or bar, they seem to give you free snack! These are crips and peanuts for free!
