OLBIA, SARDEGNA

Pleasure... Olbia

Yes, for those exploring its charms for the first time, there is the pleasure of discovering it in all its colours, while for those who had always known it simply as a port or airport to pass through, the chance to re-discover it all again, no, to live it. Olbia is, in fact, an interesting city of history and culture, fun, fashion and shopping. Monuments, museums and archaeological sites, therefore, but also the sea and beaches of extraordinary beauty with hotels, discos and restaurants which are famous and renowned at international levels

Arriving by aeroplane

The Costa Smeralda airport is the only one in North-East Sardinia. Recently restructured, it is host to the University degree course in Economics and Tourism, a concrete example of the integration of the airport, as a thriving business, and the university, working together to sponsor culture, business and development. From our airport, one can reach a range of national and international destinations. Important information on itineraries, timetables, costs and booking
