Nice Bastia Ferry reviews

  • "Good efficient service"

    The ferries in both directions were on time and facilities were more than adequate for the crossings. We had a deluxe cabin on the way back and were very pleased by the amenities in it and the space. I would definitely recommend Corsica Sardinia Ferries to anyone considering travelling from France to Corsica. I would not however recommend the booking company Direct Ferries....do it with the Ferry company direct. Direct Ferries did not let us know of the cancellation of a service we had booked with another carrier and we are still waiting for a refund after 5 weeks for this inconvenience.

  • "Very smooth trip"

    Most impressed by punctuality and ease of getting on/off the ship. If you are using an overnight cabin, bring thick pyjamas and bedsocks - the air conditioning was so fierce that I hardly slept due to cold.

  • "Very pleasant trip"

    I was travelling with my mother and my son to from Nice to Corsica and back. It is my experience that ferries for such short distances may not be too comfortable and often lack some facilities. This was not the case here. Very nice and clean cabin, good food, restarant accepted cards and ther was wifi working. Overall the ferry was clean and staff was very helpful. I also would like to note that there was a change of time for departure and I received both email and call warning of the time change, so ths was very customer friendly! The only drawback was that the ferry from Nice to Bastia was missing the escalator, so we had to pull our heavy suitcases for 2 decks at the boarding and unboarding. The ferry back ad everything, so I assume this is an exception.

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 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 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).
