Porto Torres Guide

The Italian city of Porto Torres is located on the north west coast of the island of Sardinia. It is roughly 25 km to the east of the Gorditanian promontory and also on the bay of the Gulf of Asinara. There are a number of things to see in the city, the most popular being the 11th century, three naved, Basilica of San Gavino which was built using only precious hardstones like marble, porphyry and granite, and is Sardinia's largest Romanesque church. Also popular are the Catacombs of Tanca Borgona which are man made underground passageways built for religious practice.

It is the second best served port in Sardinia, after Olbia, and links the island to Genoa, with a crossing time of 11 hours and 30 minutes. There are also services to Civitavecchia (7 hours and 15 minutes, Barcelona (11 hours and 15 minutes), Ajaccio (3 hours and 30 minutes), Propriano ( 4 hours) and Marseille (17 hours).

Ajaccio Guide

Ajaccio is the largest town on the French island of Corsica and is located on its south west coast, around 210 miles to the south east of Marseille, on the French mainland. The harbour in the town lies at the bottom of a hill that overlooks the peninsular which protects the harbour, and to the east of the original citadel, and on the northern shore of the Gulf of Ajaccio. Napoleon Bonaparte is arguably the town's most famous resident who was born in the Casa Buonaparte in 1769. His former house is now open to the public. The town's lovely mellow-toned buildings, lively cafes and marina make the town an ideal place to stroll through and explore.

The town's harbour is a major stop over for cruises and is the second busiest in France, after Marseille. Ferries from the port depart almost daily to Marseille, Toulon and Nice on the French mainland. There are also seasonal services to Livorno, Sardinia, Calvi and Propriano. The two major shipping companies providing these links are SNCM and Corsica Ferries.
