"Excellent ferry service to Sardinia"
This ferry is of a very high standard. It is comfortable, bright, airy, with a choice of different restaurants. There is a kids play area and if you want to relax there is an area where you can pay for reclining seats in a spacious and comfortable area. Best to prepay for these especially at busy periods. It is well worth the 11 euros to have a comfortable seat and somewhere you can sleep if you want to on the 6 hour journey. You can buy them at the reception on board if there are any still available. There are also cabins available, although we didn't try these, but they looked very good too.

The only inconvenient is the delay at the opening of the garage doors. The request to go to the garage is very early. It may be useful (like it was in the past) that only the drivers enter inside the garages. The rest was fine.

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.
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.
