Civitavecchia Olbia Ferry reviews

  • "Route from Civitavecchia to Olbia"

    The ship was a beautiful experience for my daughter and me. The long route was enjoyable because of the outlook of the ship. It's great to sit in the lounge or outside either. The only problem was there was nothing to eat apart from sandwiches and toasts because the Pizzeria wasn't open. I have to mention the journey was 6 hours instead of the official 5 from Civitavecchia to Olbia. We didn't really mind.

    We went to Sardegna with our car. We had a hard time getting back to the car with all of our luggage at the end of the trip. The staff could have been more helpful directing us to our car park level.

Civitavecchia Guide

Located in the Lazio region of central Italy, the town of Civitavecchia can be found in the province of Rome and has a seaport on the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea and is around 80 km to the north west of Rome. Located in an 18th century building that once belonged to Clemente XIII, visitors will find the Archaeological Museum of Civitavecchia. The building was originally constructed to house the headquarters of the papal garrison. In the museum visitors will see archaeological findings from the town of Centumcellae (the ancient name for Civitavecchia) and from the town's immediate surroundings. In the town's main square visitors will also find another interesting attraction. The Cathedral dedicated to San Francis of Assisi was built over a church that already existed and which the Franciscan fathers had built upon concession by Pope Paul V in 1610.

The town's harbour, formed by two piers and a breakwater, upon which stands a lighthouse, accommodates ferries to destinations including Sicily, Sardinia and Tunisia.

Olbia Guide

Olbia is an Italian city that is located in the north east of the island of Sardinia and its port received ferries from the Italian mainland and acts as a gateway to the Costa Smeralde and provides facilities and services for tourists. Olbia is not as appealing as Alghero or Cagliari but the old part of the city contains Roman Baths, an impressive granite church and a number of other historic buildings. Popular with tourists is the medieval Pisan Romanesque church which is hewn out of Galluren granite where, in the apse, there are two 13th century frescos with the one on the left depicting San Simplicio, the Patron Saint of Olbia. A popular festival in the city is the Festa di San Simplicio which is one of the city's biggest and is celebrated over three days in the middle of May.

Olbia's port is on an island linked to the town by a long causeway. Car ferries connect Olbia with mainland Italian destinations including Genoa and Civitavecchia, near Rome. Additional destinations are available from Golfo Aranci, a port to the north of Olbia.
