Genoa Olbia Ferry reviews

  • "Genoa to olbia"

    Cabins comfy makes a long trip pass quick. Shower ok.  On way over to Sardinia we got 4 berth cabin and it was ideal, clean etc with bathroom.  On way back shower in our cabin leaked all over the bathroom floor, however apart from that journey was great like last time although 2 hrs late in docking. Made no difference to us.

Genoa Guide

The Italian city of Genoa lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast and is located in the Liguria region of Italy. The city's old town, which has a long and rich history in art, music, architecture and gastronomy was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2006. Additionally the city was declared the European Capital of Culture in 2004 and is also the birthplace of Niccolo Paganini and Christopher Columbus.

The maze of squares and narrow streets make up Genoa's historic centre. The city has influences of the medieval about it, along with 16th century and Baroque influences (San Matteo square and the ancient via Aurea, now via Garibaldi). Visitors can still see remains of the 17th century walls near to San Lorenzo Cathedral, which happens to be the most attended place of worship in Genoa.

Genoa's port is Italy's largest commercial and industrial port, and one of Europe's busiest ports in the Mediterranean Sea. The ferry terminal, located in the Calata Chiappella, between Ponte Asserto and Ponte Colombo, is on many levels and is accessible by passengers in wheelchairs. On the terminal's top level visitors will find waiting rooms and a shopping centre. Ferries operating from the port generally depart towards Sardinia, Sicily, Corsica, Spain, Tunisia and Morocco.

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.
