  • "bar service"

    The barman often seemed bothered when you asked them for a simple coffee. The lavatories were very clean, the cuisine was good and the prices were reasonable.

  • "A journey between Livorno, Olbia and back"

    It was perfect, the service was good, we departed and arrived on time. What else can you ask? Maybe a slightly cheaper fare for the car.

  • "Well organised"

    We've had good experiences with Moby Lines before and their good customer service was confirmed once again. No need to go and collect tickets from an office on arrival at the port, but straight on to the queue, handover your reservation confirmation and your ticket is printed on the spot. What's exceptional is how friendly all staff on the ship is, and they all try to speak English. The announcements are also bilingual, in Italian nad English. The ferry is very clean, modern, spacious and with ample seating. Unfortunately there are no chairs on the outer decks, so it's advisable to bring a folding chair. The ship departed right on time. Moby Lines is a fine example to other ferry companies going to Sardinia.

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 received ferries from the Italian mainland and acts as a gateway to the Costa Smeralde 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.
