Section in Olbia
Do & See
If you arrive in Olbia by air, only a 10 minute drive from the airport will bring you to the central Piazza Regina Margherita. Running off it, the cobbled lanes in the old part of town around the Corso Umberto are full of good restaurants and pretty piazzas to linger in over a drink. In the early evening this is the place for the passeggiata when everyone struts and preens to see and be seen. From here, past the level crossing and the railway station, you come to the town’s top tourist sight, the Basilica di San Simplicio.
