How to get to Sardinia

With the ferry boat

Ferry connections during day or night are offered annually and are more frequent in the summer. The vehicle ferries also offer ‘Fast Ferries’, which only take 6 hours. You can reach Sardinia from the main Italian ports like Civitavecchia, Fiumicino, Genoa, Livorno and Piombino.
The destinations in Sardinia are Cagliari, Porto Torres, Olbia, Golfo d’Aranci (Olbia) and Arbatax. It is best to book in advance, especially in the summer, in order to guarantee a seat, or a cabin if desired, for the over. Season starts at the end of March/beginning of April.
