Livorno Olbia Ferry reviews

  • "Sailing thru the night "

    Excellent spacious cabin but shower less than luke warm, with taps that seem to work backwards. Point to hot label when it’s actually cold Staff were helpful Crossing was calm and uneventful Left late but arrived on time so all worked out as expected. I think this is normal for all ships, a bit like air travel timing

  • "Livorno Olbio on a Moby"

    I have used this company before - to get to Elba. - one of the reasons I chose them this time. Livorno port by the route my app took me is a bit torturous to reach on foot and confusing: olbio port a bit overwhelming, initially, but a short walk to town, Ship and crew was excellent. I was travelling as a reclining chair passenger and was impressed that there were shower facilities. Not my experience of other companies on this route but a single ladies and gents bathroom could become busy on more crowded runs. I was stunned by the 0600 alarm call reminding you about facilities on board (docked at 07h00 not the 08h00 advertised). The reclining chairs were as usual not recliny enough to snooze in overnight but with a light loading on the ship, moveable armrests, their arrangement meant you could sleep acros rows. Food ok, overpriced by local standards but not by UK.

  • "Wonderful cruise to Sardinia "

    We cruised between Livorno and Olbia for holidays. First time for us. Everything went smooth and easy : Quick and efficient onboarding and disembarking, relaxing cruise. We enjoyed especially the swimming pool and the cabin on our way back (night trip).

Livorno Guide

The Italian city and port of Livorno lies in the Ligurian Sea on the western coast of Tuscany. Much of the original street layout and architecture has been retained in the New Venice area of the city. In this area visitors can see old bridges, narrow lanes, noblemen's houses and a network of canals that were used to connect its port to the city's warehouses. Also of interest are many fine examples of neo-classical buildings, museums, public parks and cultural institutions. Containing memorabilia, documents and operas by the composer Pietro Mascagni, who lived in the city, is the Museo Mascagnano and is well worth a visit. Organised by the Traditional Theatre of Livorno, some of Mascagni's operas are performed during the lyric music season.

The city's port is the third largest on Italy's west coast and provides many services and facilities including cargo handling and passenger services. The port's facilities include wheelchair ramps, toilets and shower facilities for passengers. There are also bars, restaurants, a conference centre, banks and a passenger information kiosk. From the port, there are ferry services to Bastia, Olbia, Golfo Aranci, Cagliari 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.
