What to see
Despite the fact that it is often used merely as a port for disembarking in order to travel to the more famous nearby areas such as the Emerald Coast or Gallura, Olbia has a lot of history to offer. In the picturesque historic centre, you can find interesting churches, such as the Romanesque church of San Simplicio or the Baroque church of Saint Paul, plus palaces and villas. A short distance away you can find Pedres Castle and Sa Paulazza Castle, and some archaeological sites dating from the Prenuragic and Nuragic eras up to the Roman era, with remains of the forum and Roman villa of S'Imbalconadu.
What to eat
Besides the famous Sardinian specialities known throughout the world, such as “porceddu”, “seadas”, “mirto”, and “cannonau”, Olbia also offers various traditional dishes. Here you will find “fregula con cocciula”, the typical Sardinian pasta with a flavourful clam soup; “ortziadas”, floured and fried sea anemones; and “zuppa gallurese”, a rustic dish made with broth, sheep and lamb meat, tomato sauce, grated pecorino cheese, salt, and basil.
