Olbia is famous above all for the beaches of the Costa Smeralda, such as the four splendid inlets of Porto Istana. But there are also many other things to see in this ancient coastal city. The historic centre blends the Roman style with the medieval one, and it is highly suggested to walk through its streets, full of excavations and churches to visit. Walking through the streets, you can also stop and taste some typical dishes of the city, such as the famous mussels washed down with Vermentino. Olbia is also rich in particular historical artefacts, such as the treasure of gold coins kept in the Archaeological Museum, of which stories are told about legendary pirates.
