It was our first time with this company. Great crossing. The port in Nice is very busy and not very well sign posted. The ferries were pleasant and spacious. Conclusion: we would choose this company again, but from a different port.

Nothing to report, everything was good. My husband is disabled and the service we received was perfect. The schedule is respected. I recommend it.

The Mega Express 4 was a pleasurable way to travel from Bastia back to Nice. The staff were efficient and friendly, seating was comfortable in a range of different styles and locations throughout the ship and the check in process ran smoothly with the ship leaving on time. My husband and I truly enjoyed the experience and would travel again by ferry.

As a single female traveller with a british car alone abroad for the first time the journey was pleasant, although I was apprehensive with the journey through the ports and on and off the boat However the staff were very helpful and it was pleasant being able to sit at the stern of the boat in a deck chair for the journey to Corsica The boat was clean and food was as expected all in all a good journey.

Nice is one of the most well-known towns in France, due to its proximity to Cannes, but also for being one of the towns’ part of the French Riviera. Nice is located on the southern coast of France in the region known as the French Riviera approximately 12 n mi west of the Italian border. One side of the town is the sea front and its big white sandy beaches full of tourists and on the other side has its high mountains at the back the coastline north of Nice. Nice was founded in the 5th century BC by the Greeks of Marseille and received the name of Nikaia in honour of a victory over the neighbouring Ligurians (Nike being the goddess of victory). It soon became one of the busiest trading stations on the Ligurian coast; but as a city it had an important rival in the Roman town of Cemenelum, which continued to exist as a separate city till the time of the Lombard invasions, and has left its ruins at Cimiez, which is now a quarter of Nice.
Calvi is a small town and commune of the Haute-Corse département, in France. It is located on the northwest coast of the island of Corsica. The town began as a fishing port on the site of the present-day ville basse below the citadel, and remained just a cluster of houses and fishing shacks until the Pisans conquered the island in the tenth century. Not until the arrival of the Genoese, however, did the town become a stronghold when, in 1268, Giovaninello de Loreto, a Corsican nobleman, built a huge citadel on the windswept rock overlooking the port and named it Calvi. A fleet commanded by Nelson launched a brutal two-month attack on the town in 1793, when Nelson lost his eye; he left saying he hoped never to see the place again. The town these days has the ambience of a slightly kitsch Côte d'Azur resort, whose glamorous marina, souvenir shops and fussy boutiques jar with the down-to-earth villages of its rural hinterland
