Reaching one of Sardinia’s most fascinating and picturesque locations is possible with Livorno – Golfo Aranci ferries. Sardinia’s white beaches are not just a dream. Did you know that Golfo Aranci is the Italianisation of Golfu di li Ranci or ‘Gulf of the Crabs’? One of its most interesting sights is Capo Figari, 200 metres of rocky cliffs overlooking the sea. The port of Livorno, on the other hand, is, together with the port of Genoa, one of the most important in the Mediterranean in terms of passengers but above all in terms of cargo traffic. As of 2018, a transit of around 37 million tonnes is expected.
