Olbia is in Sardinia, a region of Italy.
Olbia is a ferry port, so you can easily get in by ferry/cruise ship, from Civitavecchia (Rome's ferry port), Genova, Livorno and Naples.
Beware the way locals drive: racing along the narrow and bendy roads in the hills.
Many companies offering car hire ex.: Avis or Only Sardinia Autonoleggio.
Olbia has the only mall and only McDonalds for hundreds of miles. To most, that is a good thing.
