Savona Guide

The Italian town of Savona is located in the northern Italian region of Liguria, in the Riviera de Ponente on the Mediterranean Sea coast. The town's industrial past is dominated by its iron industry and at one point it had many iron-works and foundries, shipbuilding, railway workshops, engineering shops and a brass foundry. Christopher Columbus was one of the town's most famous residents who reputedly farmed land in the area while chronicling his adventures. 'Columbus' House' is situated between vegetable crops and fruit trees, in the Savona hills, and is one of several residences in Liguria associated with the explorer.

There are many things to see in the town and its medieval centre is worth a visit. The Baroque Cathedral di Nostra Signora Assunta managed to survive the destruction by Genoese forces in the 16th century and so too did imposing Fortezza del Priamar. The fortress guards a couple of sculpture museums and the Civico Museo Storico Archeologico, which displays archaeological finds.

From the town's port Corsica Ferries is the principal ferry operator to Corsica, offering a weekly sailing to Bastia and a weekly sailing to Ile Rousse and Clavi. The crossing time is around 3 hours for all three destinations.

Golfo Aranci Guide

Golfo Aranci is the name of gulf that is located on the north eastern coast of the island of Sardinia, Italy. Thanks to the port here, the town is blessed with excellent connections by ferry to the rest of Italy and is only a few kilometers from Porto Rotondo and 15 km from Olbia. There are disagreements as to the exact meaning of Golfo Aranci's name. One meaning has it that the name stems from a shipwreck that was full of oranges and the other, and to some the most convincing explanation, is linked to the Sardinian term 'granci', which are the crabs that are found in the area.

Visitors to Golfo Aranci also tend to visit the marine reserve that is on the nearby island of Tavolara. Also popular with visitors are the wide range of water sports that are on offer which enables visitors to experience first hand the lovely, warm clear waters that are found off the town's shores. Inland, there is the Cala Moresca pine forest which is easily reached on foot or by bicycle.

There are daily ferries operating from the town's port to Civitavecchia, Livorno and Fiumincino.
