  • "Ryanair of the seas"

    Crowded, expensive, grumpy staff, the best place was up on deck in the limited shade available. The self service restaurant where that was ACTUALLY adequate seating was closed shortly after the ship departed by grumpy staff who kicked me out after I finished the small expensive meal. Positives were air conditioning was comfortable and toilets spacious and clean. If anyone knows Ryanair, this is a similar experience. Worst Ferry I've ever travelled on. Go try some of the Scandinavian lines if you want to see how it should be done.

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 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.
