  • "Great trip"

    We sailed from Olbia to Civitavecchia then onto Rome. The ship was great, everything you need. The cabin was a little noisy due to the vibrations from the engine but this is unavoidable. Would definitely do again.

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.

Civitavecchia Guide

The Italian city of Civitavecchia lies on the Tyrrhenian Sea coast in the Lazio region of the country. The city, which is home to just under 60,000 residents, is home to a cruise and ferry port and is located around 80 km to the north west of Rome. The city can trace its port's history back over one thousand years to 101-108 AD, when the Emperor Trajan ordered the port of Centumcellae to be built in order to accommodate deepwater shipping for the Roman capital. After this period, they fell under the rule of a number of different Counts and Popes.

In the city visitors will find examples of restored medieval and Baroque structures which includes the large Forte Michelangelo which is a fortress that was commissioned by pope Giulio II in the early 16th century and the 17th century defensive walls behind the port. The wall forms one side of the Lungoporto Gramsci which is an elevated pedestrian walkway. From here there are excellent views to be had of the cruise ships and ferry basins in the port.

Car and passenger ferries link Civitavecchia to Sardinia, Sicily, and other destinations within Italy and abroad.
