Olbia is in Sardinia, a region of Italy.

The city itself rarely attracts visitors who usually arrive to its airport or the ferry port and than rush out to the beauties of Costa Smeralda.

Get in

By plain

Olbia is serviced by Aeroporto Olbia Costa Smeralda

By boat

Olbia is a ferry port, so you can easily get in by ferry/cruise ship, from Civitavecchia (Rome's ferry port), Genova, Livorno and Naples.

Get around

By car

Beware the way locals drive: racing along the narrow and bendy roads in the hills.



Olbia has the only mall and the only McDonalds for hundreds of miles – for many people there that is a good thing.



Stay safe

You may encounter poor road conditions, with potholes and open grids. Also the skill of some drivers leaves something to be desired. For girls it's better not to walk alone late at night, just to avoid the possibility to meet drunk homeless (usually harmless though).
