Olbia, Sardinia
Olbia is an ancient port city founded by the Greeks, according to local legend, as early as the 8th century BC. It contains ruins from Phoenician and Carthaginian settlements, as well as from the Roman Era, when it was an important port, and from the Middle Ages, when it was the capital of one of the four independent states of Sardinia. The name "Olbia" means "happy town", even though the city's past has been quite difficult. Olbia was destroyed and reconstructed several times throughout its history.

Be sure to see the Romanesque ex-cathedral of San Simplicio, dating from the 11th century AD. The church was built in three different phases over a Roman Necropolis, the remains of memorial tablets are still visible inside the church. Olbia has also become famous because of the recent discovery of 24 ship wrecks, two of them from the age of Nero and another 16 from the 5th century A.D. The remaining six come from the Judicial period. The wrecks were found during the construction of a new road tunnel.


At sea


Mahon, Menorca, Balearic, Spain
You can see why Lord Nelson choose Mahon, Menorca as the base for the British Mediterranean fleet during the Napoleonic Wars. Imagine dozens of ships of the line, being fitted out for battle in this historic harbor. Reminders of those times can still be seen in the gracious Georgian buildings that climb the steep hills backing the Moll Ponent. Mahon's heritage also includes the invention of mayonnaise and the first distillation of gin from juniper berries.
