The city of Olbia is the entry point to the Costa Smeralda. Located on the Gulf of Olbia the city is a crossroads for international air and sea traffic and has very ancient origins dating back, as it does, to the time when it was founded by the Carthaginians in the 4th century B.C. and was known as "Terranova".
Olbia is also famous for its shopping malls, night life and restaurants. And some of the most famous beaches on the North-East coast of Sardinia are just a few miles outside the city. The recently renovated Colonna Palace Hotel Mediterraneo, one of best places where you can spend a relax holiday in Sardinia in Italy, is right in the centre of the city, not far from the railway station, the port and the airport. The hotel has 106 rooms on 7 floors divided into singles, doubles, triples and rooms for 4 people.
The Colonna Palace Hotel Mediterraneo, the ideal hotel for a relax holiday in Sardinia in Italy, has a charming restaurant serving typical Sardinian cuisine and many Italian specialities. The entrance to the restaurant is both directly through the hall and from outside and it is ideal for small banquets and business lunches. The small bar behind the hall has a TV room and is a comfortable and quiet corner in which to enjoy a quick breakfast or a cocktail before going out for the evening.
