Olbia Livorno Ferry
Olbia ferry port is located on the north eastern coast of Sardinia and furthest point inland of the Gulf of Olbia, The town of Olbia and its port have a busy, bustling and lively attitude and atmosphere as the town is the economic centre of the Gallura sub-region and is very close to the famous Costa Smeralda and Porto Rotondo tourist areas, with a large number of shops, businesses and restaurants based in the town.
Olbia is a very ancient city and, according to a local legend, was founded by the Greeks. It contains ruins from prehistoric times to the Roman Era and the Middle Ages. Apart from the wonderful sea and landscape, one of the main sights in Olbia is the beautiful Romanesque cathedral of San Simplicio (11th-12th centuries).
Livorno ferry port is located on Italy's west coast by the glittering Tyrrhenian Sea. The port is the third largest on the west coast, and is a gateway for many of the visitors who flock to the region of Tuscany every year to visit sites such as Pisa and Florence.
Livorno houses a wide range of attractions and sights to visit and explore, such as the Monumento Dei Quattro Mori, the Sanctuary of Montenero, dedicated to Our Lady of the Graces and famous for the adjacent gallery, and the Piazza della Repubblica. Also popular are the Museo Mascagnano, which houses memorabilia such as documents and operas by the great composer Pietro Mascagni, and the Monument of the Four Turks, dedicated to Grand Duke Ferdinando II de' Medici of Tuscany, one of the most important monuments of Livorno
05 May 2019comfortable overnight crossing from Sardinia to Livorno.
We booked an inside cabin which was reasonably comfortable, good shower. The matrass was a bit thin but we still got a good sleep. Not troubled by any noise overnight. Very easy and quick embarkation. A short queueing time for getting off at Livorno.
