"Trip to Bastia, October 2014"

The ferry was a great experience by and large. It was a little confusing figuring out where to go exactly to check in and get on the boat in Livorno, so if you're picking the ferry up there, make sure you have a little extra time beyond the 90 minutes. The ferry is nice though, almost like a mini-cruise ship with lounges, TVs, a couple of bars, a restuarant and a cafeteria. Even though it was a hour trip, the time passed quickly.

East and quick boarding, don't expect a luxury cruise, it's a simple ship. The food on board is simple but fine.

Easy checkin, bus to ferry from terminal, escalator to deck which was great with heavy suitcases, luggage room to store suitcases during sailing, clean ferry, smooth disembarkation. Only issue, we were told there were shuttle buses from the terminal running into Livorno. However, the only buses we saw at 6 pm on our arrival were all locked up at the exit gates so we had to walk into the main town centre. We didn't use catering so can't comment on the food but the main dining area looked very elegantly set up.

The Italian city and port of Livorno lies in the Ligurian Sea on the western coast of Tuscany. Much of the original street layout and architecture has been retained in the New Venice area of the city. In this area visitors can see old bridges, narrow lanes, noblemen's houses and a network of canals that were used to connect its port to the city's warehouses. Also of interest are many fine examples of neo-classical buildings, museums, public parks and cultural institutions. Containing memorabilia, documents and operas by the composer Pietro Mascagni, who lived in the city, is the Museo Mascagnano and is well worth a visit. Organised by the Traditional Theatre of Livorno, some of Mascagni's operas are performed during the lyric music season.
The city's port is the third largest on Italy's west coast and provides many services and facilities including cargo handling and passenger services. The port's facilities include wheelchair ramps, toilets and shower facilities for passengers. There are also bars, restaurants, a conference centre, banks and a passenger information kiosk. From the port, there are ferry services to Bastia, Olbia, Golfo Aranci, Cagliari and Tunisia.
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).
