  • "Genoa to Porto Torres Round Trip"

    This was our second trip to Sardinia with Tirrenia, and we enjoyed it as much as we did we did the first time. The Check-in, Security Clearance and Boarding processes are fairly straightforward, and like an airpot require some patience as it takes some time to load hundreds of cars and passengers onto a ship. Once onboard, the Officers and Crew are VERY Courteous and helpful, and speak enough English to offer assistance. We always book a cabin so we can sleep on the 12 hour journey and have a private toilet and shower. The cabins are quiet, roomy, clean, well-equipped with towels and linens and the bunks offer a comfortable night's sleep. Many passengers book a reclining sleeper seat, or set up camp on the deck. The self-service cafeteria offers good food, although a bit pricey, and has a number of window tables from which to enjoy the view. A Real Treat is the morning Breakfast Bar, at which you can order Delicious Italian Coffee, Croissants, and Fresh-Squeezed Orange Juice. There is a children's playroom, card room, bar, big screen Italian TV. Internet is slow, we bring books or our own movies to watch. In general, the ship is clean, tidy, and well-maintained. It normally leaves and arrives close to on-time, but the debarkation process is time-consuming and often takes close to an hour after arrival, depending on which deck you are parked on.

Civitavecchia Guide

Located in the Lazio region of central Italy, the town of Civitavecchia can be found in the province of Rome and has a seaport on the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea and is around 80 km to the north west of Rome. Located in an 18th century building that once belonged to Clemente XIII, visitors will find the Archaeological Museum of Civitavecchia. The building was originally constructed to house the headquarters of the papal garrison. In the museum visitors will see archaeological findings from the town of Centumcellae (the ancient name for Civitavecchia) and from the town's immediate surroundings. In the town's main square visitors will also find another interesting attraction. The Cathedral dedicated to San Francis of Assisi was built over a church that already existed and which the Franciscan fathers had built upon concession by Pope Paul V in 1610.

The town's harbour, formed by two piers and a breakwater, upon which stands a lighthouse, accommodates ferries to destinations including Sicily, Sardinia and Tunisia.

Olbia Guide

Olbia is an Italian city that is located in the north east of the island of Sardinia and its port receives ferries from the Italian mainland and acts as a gateway to the Costa Smeralda 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.
