Sardinia, Italy


Sunrise in Alghero, Sardinia, Italy

This was my first trip to the island of Sardinia! We flew from Turin to Rome and then flew Blue Air (the only airlines) to Alghero in Sardinia. Alghero is a coastal city in the northwest of Sardinia, Italy. An ancient city with a quaint cobblestoned old center and an old city wall, its Catalan inspired buildings include the Cattedrale di Santa Maria, with a wonderful bell tower, Palazzo Guillot and Chiesa di San Francesco, a 14th-century church.
