The trip has been relaxing, well organised, on perfect time and staff on board was always available and they were very helpful. The ticket prices on both journeys were very competitive. The service quality and the entertainement is higher comparing to other ferry operators. Keep going this way. Thanks

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.
