Genoa Bastia Ferry reviews

  • "Genoa to Bastia"

    Well organised and quick to disembark. Restaurant was good. Cabin was comfortable. Breakfast was not quite so rapid.

  • "Just love Moby"

    We had a great experience with Moby, tried all, from cabin to restaurant and even visited the medic on board. My daughter had an accident on the deck; three stitches had to be given quickly by the doctor on board. He was experienced, reassuring and knew what he was doing; we are very grateful to him and the staff who assisted him.

Genoa Guide

The Italian city of Genoa lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast and is located in the Liguria region of Italy. The city's old town, which has a long and rich history in art, music, architecture and gastronomy was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2006. Additionally the city was declared the European Capital of Culture in 2004 and is also the birthplace of Niccolo Paganini and Christopher Columbus.

The maze of squares and narrow streets make up Genoa's historic centre. The city has influences of the medieval about it, along with 16th century and Baroque influences (San Matteo square and the ancient via Aurea, now via Garibaldi). Visitors can still see remains of the 17th century walls near to San Lorenzo Cathedral, which happens to be the most attended place of worship in Genoa.

Genoa's port is Italy's largest commercial and industrial port, and one of Europe's busiest ports in the Mediterranean Sea. The ferry terminal, located in the Calata Chiappella, between Ponte Asserto and Ponte Colombo, is on many levels and is accessible by passengers in wheelchairs. On the terminal's top level visitors will find waiting rooms and a shopping centre. Ferries operating from the port generally depart towards Sardinia, Sicily, Corsica, Spain, Tunisia and Morocco.

Bastia Guide

The city of Bastia is located on Corsica's east coast and faces Italy with views out to the Tuscan Archipelago, and is the second largest city on Corsica. To the north of Bastia is le Cap Corse which is a peninsular dotted with Genoese Towers and a large nature reserve that is popular with hikers. The town's history, like many in Corsica, begins with the Genoese who ruled Corsica from the 14th century. In the south of the town, the Old Port (Vieux Port) is a popular spot to take a stroll and to see the town's jaded buildings clustered around the fishing port, which are not dissimilar to those you might expect to find in Venice. From the port, a stroll through the Romieu garden will take you to the citadel above the port, which is actually the original Genoese town that was protected by defensive walls, added during the 15th century, and includes the Porte Louis XVI through which you enter the citadel.

The ferry Port of Bastia links the city to France (Marseille, Nice and Toulon) and Italy (Genoa, La Spezzia, Livorno, Piombino, Savona, Portoferraio).
