Ajaccio is the capital city of Corsica and one of the the best ports from which to get to the island from mainland France and Sardinia.
Nice is the 5th largest city in France and one of the most visited cities after Paris, mainly by English, American, Scandinavian and Italian tourists. Nice boasts stretches of white sandy beaches and is close to the famous town of Cannes.
2000 years ago, inhabitants from Marseille won Nice from Italy and called it Nikaïa after Nike, the Greek Goddess of Victory. Nice has always been a contested territory; for a long period, it was part of Italy and eventually in 1861; it was annexed to the French Empire.
Nice offers a variety of activities and amenities from lodging and dining, to shopping, sunbathing and swimming. Cinemas, theaters, opera and museums are all on your door step. Alternatively you can simply stroll along the Promenade des Anglais and enjoy the amazing views.
Nice has many beautiful squares to visit, including the Place Massena, which is one of the most representative of Nice, or the spectacular Tete au carré, the building of the Louis Nucera's library. There are many important museums in Nice, such as the Marc Chagall, the Matisse, the Museum of Modern Arts and the Massena. While in the region, you can also visit the Pablo Picasso and the Antibes Museum.

On our return trip we were much wiser. We found a comfy spot but didn't realise that there is a whole section where you can buy a comfy seat. I guess you need to do the trip a few more times before you nail it!

23 Sep 2013Not like Brittany Ferries
On board the Italian staff hadn’t finished cleaning the majority of cabins or the communal areas which tells me there aren't enough cleaners or the schedule of docking, & leaving is wrong. It was chaos in the sapphire lounge as nobody had the key to unlock it: one person wanted everybody out whilst another said to stay where we were. There was very nearly a riot over that. The overall conclusion was that the staff couldn't be bothered & were unhelpful & surly. The boat trip was on time & not unpleasant though. I would use this route again.

A hassle-free and efficient transfer from Corsica to the mainland. On-board facilities good. Restaurant somewhat expensive.

07 Jul 2012Ferry review
The ferry was packed with people, leaving little sitting space on deck. Do not be eager to descend to get your car, since we had to wait a lot on the stairs for the doors to open. The heat on those stairs was unbearable, causing distress to some people.
