The port of Livorno is the main port of Tuscany, but also one of the most important ports in the Mediterranean, for both passenger and freight traffic. It is easy to reach by car: taking motorway A1 (Genoa-Livorno-Rosignano), you will get to the exit for Livorno; the same applies if you are coming from motorway A11-A12 (Florence-Pisa-Livorno). Then continue on state road S1, and follow the signs for ‘Porto di Livorno’ (Port of Livorno) or ‘Autorità Portuale’ (Port Authority). If you arrive by train, get off at the ‘Livorno Centrale’ station, where you can take the bus to the port. If you travel by plane, please note that, although Livorno does not have its own airport, it is well connected with Galileo Galilei airport in Pisa and Amerigo Vespucci airport in Florence. If you are travelling by car, it is advisable to get to the boarding areas at least two hours before departure; individual passengers, on the other hand, only need to allow an extra half an hour.

Sailing time to your destination ranges between 6 and 8 hrs.

The port of Olbia is considered the main gateway to the Costa Smeralda and is one of the most important passenger ports in the Mediterranean. It is divided into three main areas: Cocciani, Porto Interno and Isola Bianca.
