  • "Very good service. "

    We recently went to Corsica with a motorhome, from Nice to Bastia. We booked through directferries and found them efficient and inexpensive. We had van problems on our way to Nice, and had to change our booking last minute, and again they were reassuring, dealing with our issues with no fuss with just a tiny admin charge. We would highly recommend. The journey both ways was a perfect start and end to our holiday.

  • "A delightful experience "

    We’ve had a home in Nice for 12 years now but we’d never done the crossing to Corsica, although we watch the ferries everyday coming in and out of the port. Booking the ferry was very easy and the ticket was sent by email in the process. Priority boarding is recommended and not expensive. The boat itself was large and comfortable with plenty of restaurants and seating areas and even though the outbound journey was busy, it wasn’t a problem finding comfortable seats. We were fascinated by the military operation of embarking and disembarking (we took our car) and the ferry was bang on time both going and coming. All in all, this was a lovely experience with no problems and we really enjoyed our trip to Corsica.

Nice Guide

The French city of Nice is located on the south east coast of the country and lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast. It is the Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur region's second largest city, after Marseille. Over recent years the city has been experiencing an economic, cultural, artistic and architectural revolution. For centuries, however, Nice has been a popular destination for tourists and is within driving distance to other tourist destinations in the region including Cannes, Antibes and Villefrance-sur-Mer. The city caters for the high end traveller, with a number of luxury hotels mainly located around the Promenade des Anglais, down to the most price sensitive, with an equally good selection of backpacker hostels and cheaper hotels. The villas of Nice have never been more popular, with the most exclusive having the best views of the French Riviera coastline, with others looking inland towards the surrounding hills and vineyards.

In the heart of the city is the port which provides ferry connections to Corsica, Calvi, Bastia, Ajaccio and L'Ile Rousse. Passenger facilities at the port's two terminals include a tourist information office, car parking, showers, toilets, public telephones and a baby changing area.

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 peninsula 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).
