"Nice - Calvi and back"
perfect ferry operator, the employees only needed the reference number which I'd printed with the booking, so no tickets required (may be it's worth mentioning as according to the info on the confirmation, tickets have to be collected, which is not the case). Very satisfied! Good job Corsica Ferries!

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.
The French town of Calvi is located on the north west coast of the island of Corsica in a large sheltered bay with lovely mountains providing a scenic backdrop. Looming large above the town to the north is the citadel and was built between the 13th and 16th centuries and is a popular attraction in the town. Once you pass through the citadel's gateway, visitors will find the Governors Palace (Caserne Sanpiero). Unfortunately the castle is not open to the public but it is possible to walk along the ramparts.
Also popular in Calvi is the Cathedral of St Jean Baptiste which was built in the 16th century on the site of an earlier church, and is of a Baroque architectural style. Located within the cathedral are a number of interesting items including a large 15th century painting named L'Annonciation by Babrabagelata, a 15th century black statue of Christ and a renaissance period baptism font.
Another popular attraction in the city is the house that is said to be the birthplace of Christopher Columbus although the claim is unproven. The house is contained within the citadel and is marked by a statue.
