The town of Calvi is dominated by the imposing citadel and within it lays many treasures revealed to those who choose to wander beyond the port and explore the alleyways and old cobbled streets.
Calvi, originally a small fishing port, has always been historically significant and, once having been occupied by the Genoese, it is reputed to be the birthplace of Christopher Columbus. It remains the capital of the Balagne region, one of the most prosperous areas of Corsica. The surrounding hills and mountains create a natural amphitheatre which is called the `Garden of Corsica'.
Calvi possesses a beach of 6km of fine white sand, next to the ancient harbour and old town. It is one of the most beautiful beaches on the island with a gentle slope and safe bathing in the shallow, turquoise-blue waters. Windsurfing, diving, jet-skiing, yachting, water-skiing and paragliding are amongst the wide variety of water sports available in this perfect setting.
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.
24 Jun 2016very disappointing service
The ferry was late at Calvi therefore it departed late and arrived 2.5 hrs late in Nice. At Calvi port there was nowhere to sit and wait, so foot passengers had to stand for 2.5 hrs or sit on the dirty ground! What service! It was all chaotic and disorganised on our arrival in Nice. The lady making announcements on tannoy spoke such bad English that we could not understand a word. Then, it must have been the same lady showered us with insults and we were shouted at by her for a reason we could not understand!! Oh dear, in future I will certainly avoid travelling by Corsica Ferries to any point in Corsica. This service needs to be improved drastically and the least is to apologise to passengers for the delay. What about a bench to sit on when waiting for the ferry???

06 Jun 2016Night crossing from Calvi to Nice with Corsica Ferries
The loading of the ship was very quick and efficient and once loaded there was plenty of room around your vehicle to get out without impeding others. the cabin we had was quite spacious and clean with a small fresh fruit platter and a bottle of water provided. The bed was comfortable enough but was showing signs of age as it sagged in the middle and any movement was accompanied with a lot of creaking. Facilities on board were quite good with a caberet bar, main restaurant and eating area. The early breakfast choices were very good and the staff very efficient at getting people served prior to disembarkation.

This trip was the same good experience like the previous one but a little bit too long - almost 6 hours.

28 Jul 2012Calvi to Nice
Very easy to check in as a foot passenger as the port right in the middle of calvi town On board facilities very good. Lots of comfortable seating. Crew was happy to tune TV on to Tour de France coverage for the cycling fans on board. Quite difficult to navigate out of port at Nice as a foot passenger. Some on board information as to availability and location of port bus service would be helpful.
