Algeria stands on the cusp of discovery by the world of tourism. A resplendent and varied landscape of resort-style beaches, sky-scraping mountains and monolithic dunes are home to 7 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including historic fortresses and ancient Roman cities. With so much to offer, Algeria is fast becoming a popular holiday destination. Arrive rested and ready to explore with Alitalia’s extra-comfort seats, available on all our flights to Algeria.
The whitewashed walls of Algiers’ French colonial-inspired façades stare out into the deep blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea. From here, visitors can enjoy a myriad of modern seaside resorts alongside the stately Romanesque architecture of the Notre Dame d’Afrique. To the west, Oran beckons tourists with an impressive array of goods on offer at Le Marché de Medina Jedida, the country’s largest market. If you’re traveling to Algeria for a taste of something more traditionally African, head south and behold the ancient ksour, towering mud-bricked citadels set upon the border of the vast Sahara.
Algerian cuisine is as exciting as it is varied, with fresh seafood from the port cities mingling with French, Arabic and Ottoman influences. Book your tickets to Algeria for September for the perfect balance of coastal warmth and inland mildness.
