What to see in Olbia

Olbia, nestled on Sardinia's northeastern coast, is a charming gateway to the island's wonders. Its pristine beaches, clear turquoise waters and historic centre offer a taste of Mediterranean paradise. With a rich history dating back to the Phoenicians, Olbia merges ancient charm with modern allure, inviting travellers to explore and indulge.

The Costa Smeralda, or Emerald Coast, is a renowned stretch of coastline located just a short drive from Olbia. This glamorous destination is famous for its crystal-clear waters, pristine beaches and luxurious resorts. Visitors flock here to bask in the Mediterranean sun and revel in the natural beauty that defines this region. Start your exploration with a visit to the beach of Capriccioli, known for its striking granite rock formations and azure waters. It's an excellent spot for swimming and snorkelling. Nearby, you'll find the charming beach of Liscia Ruja, which boasts fine golden sand and calm, shallow waters – perfect for families.

Sardinia is renowned for its unique ancient structures known as Nuraghi, and one of the most impressive is Nuraghe Riu Mulinu, conveniently located near Olbia. These megalithic towers, built by the Nuragic civilisation thousands of years ago, are a testament to the island's rich prehistoric heritage. Explore this well-preserved archaeological site, which consists of a central Nuraghe tower and a village with several huts and surrounding walls. The central tower, with its intricate stone construction, offers a glimpse into the advanced engineering skills of the Nuragic people.

While Olbia is often a gateway to the surrounding attractions, the city itself has its own historical and cultural treasures worth exploring. Begin your journey through Olbia's past at the Museo Archeologico (Archaeological Museum). This museum houses an impressive collection of artefacts, including pottery, sculptures and relics from the Phoenician, Carthaginian and Roman periods, offering a comprehensive overview of Olbia's history. Next, visit the Basilica of San Simplicio, a Romanesque church dating back to the 11th century. This well-preserved place of worship features intricate architectural details and a peaceful courtyard. Inside, you'll find ancient frescoes and a sense of tranquillity that contrasts with the bustling streets outside.
