The pretty fishing village of Bosa is just a short scenic drive along the coast from Alghero. It's considered one of most beautiful Sardinia's seaside retreats. And on this excursion, you'll have plenty of time to explore the handicraft market and old town, sit down for some lunch and soak up the laidback vibe.
As soon as you step foot in Bosa, you'll feel as if you've been transported back in time. Pastel-coloured houses flank the River Temo and character infuses every square centimetre. Lording it over the town is the hilltop Malaspina Castle – which while a shell of its former glory boasts a remarkably simple medieval chapel adorned with fragile frescoes.
You'll be able to browse the stalls at the weekly market where artisans and locals sell their own produce and goods, and enjoy an optional tour of the centre if you wish. There's no rushing around on this tour, so you'll truly experience authentic Sardinia.
