Getting tourist board information right before and even during your vacation in Italy, can really help you benefit from the most up-to-date details about the region you are visiting. Perhaps there is a festival occurring that is new on the calendar that a tourist board can help you with.

The tourist board for the country of Italy has a great website offering a plethora of information for your plans. If you live in North America they will also send you a free brochure. If you are not in North America, visit the website specified for the UK.

The Sardinia region has an online tourist board that can help you plan for your stay in the region as well. One thing to watch out for though, is that in 2007, the EU grants to sardinia come to an end.  The Regional Government has dictated that Sardinia must now learn to stand on it's own two feet & become self-sufficient.  Significant cuts to  Tourist Office budget in Sardinia, which is not seen as an essential expense, have been annaounced

There are still three tourist offices in Alghero.  They do not have online representation. They located at:

  • Lungo Mare Dante, 1
  • Via Principe Umberto, 63
  • Piazza Porta Terra -  Ufficio Informazioni Tuistiche, Piazza Porta Terra 9, 07041, Alghero, SS. Tel: 0039-079-979054, Fax: 0039 -079-974881.

 If you have further questions and needs for travel within Italy, it is always good to check with your own government or the host country's embassy. Americans can get into Italy without a Visa and stay for up to three months. For more entry-requirements, check with the government.
