Every day, ferries leave the Sardinian port of Olbia for Civitavecchia, which is a handy arrival point for those visiting Rome. All ferries from Olbia to Civitavecchia are operated by Tirrenia, which reaches the mainland in eight hours, so it's a relatively time-consuming journey. There's a single crossing every day, which usually departs at around 10:30 p.m., and travels overnight to reach Civitavecchia around breakfast time. Travelers can take as many cars and bikes on board as they desire.

What do you need to know to travel by ferry from Olbia to Civitavecchia

Olbia's passenger port offers simple dining options and places to purchase travel essentials. All Tirrenia ferries leave from the Stazione Marittima Isola Bianca, which can be found on a peninsular just outside the city center. Both the number 5 and 9 buses serve the port, and there are on-site parking facilties if required. At the other end of the voyage, the port of Civitavecchia is around 1.6km from the town's railway station. Taxis are probably the best way to make the transfer. However, passengers can also head to nearby Largo della Pace and catch either the CSP or PortLink buses. Both serve the station, where passengers can easily transfer to Rome-bound trains.
