  • "Much better than Grimaldi Lines"

    Ship arrived in Piombino just in time but embarkment went smooth and fast. Arrival in Olbia without delay. We were lucky to have a deck chair but you cannot move the chairs to another part of the ship as they are chained to the walls. There were not enough deck chairs for those who were too late to get one. Toilets got dirty fast but were cleaned several times during the journey. All in all the service was much better than we experienced with Grimaldi Lines later that week. Grimaldi, though, has more and better deck chairs which can be moved all over the deck.

  • "Piombino-Olbia/Olbia-Genua "

    Piombino investor without restaurant / toilet within range (about 2km away by the dock) In case of delay of> 1 h as ours waiting in the heat of the car was almost extreme. Crossing good & comfortable. Return OLB Genoa disaster: Pullman seats among Garage Decks, without windows, stuffy, uncomfortable, thick air. Service ok. Prices in bold! We do not make night driving more.

  • "nerve-racking "

    Our planned 9 clock crossing was the supplier for several weeks previously rebooked to 14.30 clock, while we basically had no objections. The ship arrived despite the best weather with over 90 late at the start port of Piombino and put correspondingly late again. Until the departure we were over three hours in the car queue at the ferry port in the blazing sun. The trip also took place the specified 4.5 sins actually 6 hours! This allows us to ferry incl Check-in time cost almost as long as the much more car journey from Central Germany to the port of Piombino (Italy). Although the ferry to return on 09/14/2013 in Olbia put on time from 14.30 clock, but required for the crossing again instead of the specified five hours over 7 hours, also in best weather conditions! In addition there was this time too few seats and stay opportunities, so many travelers spent the ride on the helicopter deck. In bad weather, the ship unbearable crowd would certainly emerged. For our next trip we will Sardinia seek another alternative.

Piombino Guide

The Italian town of Piombino is located in the Province of Livorno in Tuscany. It lies on the border between the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Ligurian Sea, in front of the island of Elba and on the northern side of Maremma. The town can trace its origins back to when it was an Etruscan Port which then became an important port in the Middle Ages of the Republic of Pisa. A great time to visit is in August when "Agosto con Gusto" is in full swing. It is a significant food and wine fair that celebrates the gastronomy and culinary traditions of Piombino. Other visitor attractions in the town include the Museum of the Citadel and the City where the town's prehistoric, Etruscan and Roman past can be further explored. For the more energetic visitor, there are a number of trekking and bicycle paths along the coastline which lead through Mediterranean scrub towards the modern port of Salivoli.

From the port of Piombino ferries depart direct to the islands of the Tuscan Archipelago (Elba Island is just 10km from the coast), as well as to Sardinia and Corsica.

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.
