Some pieces of advice to travel to Sardinia by Ferry

Arriving by ferry in Sardinia can be thought as a pleasant continuation of your holidays in Sardinia. Just think about it as a small Mediterranean cruise.
The modern boats which link the ports of Genoa, Civitavecchia and Livorno to the ports of Olbia and Porto Torres are very similar to the cruise ships that sail to and fro across the Mediterranean.
On the contrary, the cruise ships that go from Civitavecchia or the other ports of South Italy to Cagliari are said to be from an inferior standard. Thus, if you want to go south, for example to Villasimius, Costa Rei or Santa Margherita di Pula, sometimes it is easier to land in Olbia or Porto Torres (Just take into consideration the traffic jams around Olbia in high season) and then to join the beaches of South Sardinia through the SS 131 national road (Porto Torres – Cagliari: 2h30; Olbia – Cagliari: 3h).

Crossing times vary enough depending on the boats and on the distance. From 3h30 between Civitavecchia and Olbia with a fast ferry to more than 15h between Genoa and Arbatax.
Just keep informed about crossing times and keep in mind that weather conditions influence a lot those crossing times : you could suffer till a 12-hour delay or a cancellation...
But fortunately for you the Tyrrhenian Sea is a calm sea, that makes you can choose a daily crossing and enjoy the sun on your skin when traveling by ferry to Sardinia.
