Olbia is a town in the northeast of Sardinia where you can enjoy one of the finest coastlines in the Med, along with some of the best restaurants and hotels. Olbia’s small 11th century church – the Basilica of San Simplico – sums up the town’s rustic and ancient heritage. On the nearby Costa Smeralda, you’ll find some of the island’s most renowned beaches and plush tourist resorts. Car hire in Olbia makes for a quick transfer from the airport and allows you to explore what is still a very much unspoilt and laid-back island. Hiring a car in Olbia is available from the Aiport, Porto Cervo Abbiadori and Sassari, amongst others.
