I believe traveling is one of the best forms of therapy. I can truly “recover” from day to day life by leaving. Whether it’s six months in South America or a weekend in Copenhagen, traveling always takes my mind off of things and truly inspires me. This post is about that; the need to take a break, to leave, to discover, and to come back feeling refreshed with a clear mind and new ideas.
Two days itinerary: Alghero & Capo Caccia
Day 2. Wake up early to catch the bus to Capo Caccia, about 30min away from the town of Alghero. When arriving visit the cave or take a stroll using the same route the bus takes when heading back to town. Stop on the way to admire the view and take some sun. After 1h walking, you will reach Parco Naturale Regionale di Porto Conte where you can either go for another trek, this time inside the park or wait for the bus back to Alghero. Disclaimer: the route back has parts that could be dangerous due to a limited walking path. Check the road before and be mindful of the cars.
Once back in Alghero, have lunch at the charming La Piadina del Pozzo in the center and indulge in a delicious piadina. Vegetarian and vegan options are available. Take a digestive walk by the marina and spend the rest of the afternoon relaxing at a terrace. Finish the day with a typical Sardinian dinner at trattoria La Saletta. You know you are in the right place when a restaurant is full of locals. After dinner, take one last stroll in the center before calling it a day.
