Air

Alghero airport is 10km northwest of town in Fertilia. It's served by Alitalia and a number of low-cost carriers, including Ryanair, which operates flights to mainland Italy and destinations across Europe, including Brussels, Eindhoven, Frankfurt, London and Munich.

Bus

Intercity buses serve the bus terminal by the Giardini Pubblici. Note, however, that it's not much of a terminal, more a series of bus stops with a small ticket office.

There are also buses to/from Porto Torres (€3.70, one hour, five daily) and Bosa (€3.70, 1¼ hours, two daily with extra services in summer), as well as a single weekday service to Macomer (€5.50, two hours).
