WE sailed with Corsica Sardinia Ferries from Bastia to Nice at the beginning of Oct. 2014. It's a five and a half hour trip and it has been our most enjoyable ferry trip ever.Calm seas,warm sunshine, sun deck and deckchairs and an enjoyable breakfast made the trip feel like a mini cruise. I have to admit that our main ferry journeys have all been on the Irish sea in recent years, but nonetheless I would like to applaud Corsica Sardinia Ferries.

"Perfect length to get work done between vacation spots"
I found the crew and accommodations to be adequate for getting work done between my destinations. The time between (~5 hours) provided me ample time to catch up on tasks while the enjoying a tasty beverage or two.

"Crossing from Bastia to Nice"
Very friendly staff. My daughter who was on crutches was immediately allowed to use the elevator and escorted upstairs by a crew member. Also, the food and the breakfast were delicious!!!! Shame there was no water in the pool. Very recommendable.

Located in the haute-Corse department of France, in the north east of the island of Corsica lies the town of Bastia. The town is Corsica's main hub for commercial activity and is also its principal port, which is in fact divided into three parts. The old port ("Vieux Port") lies in a narrow cove and is mainly used by non-commercial operators such as pleasure and fishing boats. The commercial ferry port is a little north of the town and even further to the north is the Toga Marina which is mainly used by leisure craft such as yachts and sailing boats.
There are a number of visitor attractions in the town including The Museum of Corsica. There is also The Fortress with its keep and 16th century bell tower which provides great views over the old port, Terra Vecchia, the mountains and the coast. There is also the former palace of the Genoese governors which is now home to the museum of Corsican Ethnography.
The ferry Port of Bastia links Bastia to France (Marseille, Nice and Toulon) and Italy (Genoa, La Spezzia, Livorno, Piombino, Savona, Portoferraio).
The French city of Nice is the capital of the Cote d'Azur and is a world famous cosmopolitan tourist destination and is perfect for sun lovers. The coastline around the city is spectacular and is popular all year round with its warm and sunny summer months, and mild winters. Many visitors to the resort choose to simply relax on one of the many beaches or to swim in the azure waters off the coast. There are many free stretches of public beach in the city but there are also around 15 private beaches, called 'plages concedees', where sun loungers can be hired.
Another popular pastime whilst in the city is to take a stroll along the Promenade des Anglais (the Promenade of the English) which dates back nearly 200 years and borders the city's Mediterranean Sea coast and runs for about 6 km. There are many beautiful spots along the promenade where visitors like to sit and take in the spectacular views. The coastline of Nice is full of tourist attractions, and nearby there are also a number of appealing Côte d'Azur towns and cities. Also close to Nice are many traditional Provençal villages, which are full of character.
