Local people say that it never rains in Alghero in summer, but if it should happen, you have a good alternative to the beach.
In the labyrinth of small streets of the city centre you have the chance to buy a small gift for your friends at home, or some of the very typical Alghero products like the famous coral jewels and the silver necklaces and rings, some of them really unexpensive.
Fashion garment stores are cozy and elegant. Did you know that the famous fashion designer Antonio Marras comes from Alghero ?
Don't miss also the local sausages, Pecorino cheese, and of course the Sardinian strong wine, that you can also ask to be delivered directly home.
For the lovers of sweets, taste the typical Torrone Sardo, made of honey and almonds.
