  • "Ok trip"

    Speedy boarding and disembarking - shop and facilities on board ok but not great. Take a packed lunch as food and drinks are expensive and not great quality

  • "Positive all round experience"

    We travelled with our car - the embarkation and disembarkation procedure was very efficient and fast. We travelled overnight in a standard outside cabin, spacious enough and very clean for the price. Food and beverage was available at a reasonable price. The ferry was large and spacious with lots of seating. There was an outdoor pool which on our return daytime crossing was very popular. I'd recommend this service.

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 receives ferries from the Italian mainland and acts as a gateway to the Costa Smeralda 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.
