Golfo Aranci Guide

Located on the island of Sardinia, the Italian town of Golfo Aranci is in the Province of Olbia-Tempio and is around 200 km to the north of Cagliari and 13 km to the north east of Olbia. It also lies on the gulf that is located on the north eastern coast of Sardinia. There are two possible meanings for the name Golfo Aranci. The first centres around a shipwreck that was carrying oranges and the second is linked to the Sardinian term "granci' which are crabs that can be found in the area. Of the two, the second is perhaps the most plausible. Many visitors to the town visit the beaches found on the gulf itself, however, the town's beaches are also beautiful and include Cala Moresca, Cala Greca, Cala Sabina and the spiaggia Bianca. Also located nearby is the island of Tavolara, which is a marine reserve, and the beautiful Capo Coda Cavallo. Finally, the islands crystal clear, warm waters make it a haven for visitors who want to engage in water sports, especially scuba diving.

From the port connections are made to Italy via daily ferries to the ports of Civitavecchia, Livorno and Fiumicino. Facilities at this small port are limited to a departure lounge, café and a small convenience store.


Toulon Guide

The French town of Toulon lies on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea to the east of Marseille in the Var department of Provence. The town is located around a rocky bay and is sheltered by the rocks of 'Faron" which are topped by ancient fortifications. Due to its sheltered position the town's harbour has developed into a large harbour and is home to the French Naval fleets. Visitors to the town will enjoy strolling around the Old Town which is characterised by a number of restored buildings and narrow streets lined with shops and cafes. A popular attraction in the town is The Arsenal of Toulon which dates back to the time of Henry IV and was inaugurated in 1680. It is entered via a 1738 portico and contains many paintings, such as the beautiful picture by Antoine Morel Fatio (19th century) called 'The port of Toulon in 1854', there also paintings by Emil Mathon, with the 'Retour de l'Admiral de Courbet aux cendres salins d’ Hières'; Vincent Cordouan and the 'Combat de Vaisseau, the Romulus, 13 fevrier 1814', and by J. Vernet is 'Les Vues des Ports de France'.
