An important harbor in Sardinia, Olbia is a must-see place if you want to explore the island and discover the special beauty that has made it one of the most exclusive destinations in Italy and the world.
Situated in the north-eastern part of the island, Olbia is a city with thousands of years of history. It has been inhabited since the Neolithic period, as can be seen by the nuraghes, Greek remains and boats dating from the Roman period preserved in the city's Archeological Museum. This rich history can also be seen in churches, such as the Romanesque San Simplicio church, or St Paul's church, which is an example of the Baroque style.
THE IMPORTANCE OF THE SEA
The sea is very important in Olbia. Sardinia is a jewel of the Mediterranean and from the town you can reach authentic wonders along the coast, enjoying heavenly beaches that lead to an unspoiled sea. There's so much choice: the Golfo Aranci, with its rich history, the limestone island of Tavolara, Gallura's extensive fine sand beaches, the exclusive Costa Smeralda. The sea is a key element in Sardinia and Olbia. It's deep, blue, silver and warm, it's found between granite rocks or light sands, it's ideal for children, swimmers and those who love windsurfing and kitesurfing.
So much natural beauty is reflected in the basic ingredients of Olbia's cuisine, such as Sardinian pecorino cheese, mussels and myrtle, which is used to make the island's traditional liqueur.
