  • "A good journey"

    The ship was very clean, as was our cabin. Despite the windy weather the ride was good. Our only criticism was that the escalator was broken and as foot passengers we had to carry our heavy bags up a lot of stairs.

Olbia Guide

The Italian city of Olbia is located in the Gallura sub region of north east of Sardinia. The town is now known as a stop on the journey to and from Sardinia, however it has a long history and retains enough of its own charm to justify it as a destination in itself. The historic town centre is a lovely place to take a stroll or to sit in a bar or restaurant and watch the world go by. Popular visitor attractions in the town include the medieval Pisan-Romanesque church which is built out of Galluran granite. Two 13th century frescos can be found in the church. One depicts San Simplicio, the patrol saint of Olbia. Another popular attraction in the town is the Festa di San Simplicio which is Olbia's largest festival and is celebrated for three days every May.

The town isn't very expensive and is definitely a great place to spend a day or two. Aside from attractions in the town itself, there are some lovely beaches nearby or alternatively Olbia is a great place from which to take boat trips.

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. ASPO bus number 9 connects the port with the town. Additional destinations are available from Golfo Aranci, a port to the north of Olbia.

Genoa Guide

The port city of Genoa is located in the Liguria region of Italy and lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast. Genoa's historic centre is a maze of narrow alleys that open up onto small squares and is where visitors can't fail to appreciate the history and culture that embodies the city. Architecturally there are many different styles sitting side by side with a medieval wall acting as a base for a 14th century building on Gothic loggias. Genoa really is a place where the past literally forms the foundations of the present.

The city's old port, redesigned by Renzo Piano in 1992, is a popular draw for tourists who go there to take in all the sites the old port area has to offer. A popular site located close to the pier is the city's lighthouse where lovely views of Genoa and its Gulf can be had.

Genoa's ferry terminal is located in the Calata Chiappella and ferries depart towards Sardinia, Sicily, Corsica, Spain, Tunisia and Morocco. The terminal building has all of the usual passenger facilities and is also wheelchair friendly.
