Olbia is today an important touristic and economic center in North Sardinia with 60,000 people, a number of people that grew considerably between 1964 and 1981. Olbia is the fourth largest town in Sardinia.

Olbia (from Greek ολβιος) has seen different periods: from the Phoenician to the Roman the city became a commercial center but also a important military naval base; from the Vandalic-Byzantine period to the Judical and Catalan-Aragonese period; from the Savoia period at present.

The testimony of these periods are the main attractions to visit in Olbia.

We can starts with the Basilica of San Simplicio, Romanic church built in honor of the martyr San Simplicio; then we proceed with the church of San Paolo, in baroque style with high bell tower and majolica dome. Others interesting buildings are Palazzo Colonna (the Olbia Commune) and Villa Clorinda now the house of San Vincenzo Nuns.
