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.
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.
28 Jun 2014Not bad but..
But there is place to get better! Prices onboard are very high, cabins are very narrow.

23 May 2014Touring holiday by car.
A fairly typical ferry journey- (we travel 3/4 times a year, and have done so for many years from France to the UK and back.) The staff controlling the parking of vehicles inside the ship were not organised, and were constantly changing instructions on where and how to park! We chose Corsican ferries rather than SCNM, as SCNM appears to always have some form of strike of it's operatives, particularly in Marseille. We speak with some knowledge of this as we live in the South of France, and watch/read the local media, and are not aware of this sort of problem with Corsican, which is why we booked/travelled with them. We would add that timekeeping for departure/arrival was very good.

MY husband and myself were staying in Nice and deceided to visit Corsica for two days as we had previously stopped there on a cruise,to the south of the Island.We found the booking very easy on line,a reasonable price and good sailing times.The choice of food and drink on board very reasonably priced.As a foot passenger I did notice there wasnt any chairs for elderly passengers waiting,a elderly couple pushed their way in, to the annoyance of others waiting.
