Olbia, the co-capital of the Province of Olbia-Tempio, is situated on the north-eastern coast of Sardinia and has approximately 51,000 inhabitants. The town with its airport and harbor is the economic centre of the region and only 30 km away from the famous locations of the Costa Smeralda like Porto Rotondo and Porto Cervo. Because of ist position Olbia is one of the fundamental tourist junctions in Sardinia.
Olbia was possibly founded by the Greeks and was an important port. During the Roman Era it was settled by Phoenicians and Carthaginians. The main sight of Olbia is the Romanesque former cathedral of San Simplicio from the 11th – 12th century.
Some sites of archaeological importance from the legendary Nuraghic civilization are the Riu Mulinu nuraghe (Cabu Abbas), the Tomb of the Giants of Su Monte de S'Abe and the sacred nuraghic well of Sa Testa, and from the Roman Era the Roman Aquaduct and the Roman farm at S'Imbalconadu . Recently opened and surely worth a visit is the archaeological museum, situated on the little Island of Peddone.
