Olbia, a name which translates to happy town,' is an ancient settlement on Sardinia's northeastern coast dating back to the ancient Greek era. The town has long been the main gateway to the nearby Costa Smeralda region, and has also recently become one of the area's major budget car rental centres.
Downtown Olbia is a scenic town of picturesque cobblestoned streets lined with busy bars and sidewalk cafés, as well as significant historic buildings such as the San Simplicio Cathedral, entirely built from granite and named after the bishop presiding over Olbia in the third century. Olbia is also the site of 24 shipwrecks, many of which date back several centuries.

Also located under 1 hour outside of town by car hire in Olbia are the historic Holy Well of Sa Testa, towering prehistoric structure of Cabu Abbas, and many other unforgettable attractions.
La Maddelena, a scenic archipelago of islands recently designated as a national park, is where Giuseppe Garibaldi, a renowned Italian explorer and soldier, spent his last years on the island of Caprera, and where visitors may relax on Budelli's pink beaches.
Olbia's international airport, only 18kms south of downtown, is connected to the town's train station by buses driving between the two structures every 30 minutes. Ferries also often sail between Olbia and mainland Italy.
