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.

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 a city located on the south east coast of France on the Mediterranean Sea and is the second largest city in the Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur region after Marseille. Nice has been enjoying, in recent years, a genuine economic, cultural, artistic and architectural revolution. Nice has been a popular tourist destination for centuries and is within driving distance to other popular holiday destinations such as Cannes, Antibes and Villefranche-sur-Mer. Home to a good choice of hotels, Nice also comes with a selection of backpacker hostels and luxury options, with many of the best residing around the Promenade des Anglais. Nice villas have never been more popular and the best boast views of the French Riviera coastline, while others overlook the surrounding hills and vineyards.
The port's location is in the heart of the city and connects Corsican destinations with Nice. Nice is a trendy tourist centre, and provides an ideal base for exploring the French Riviera. Facilities in the two ferry terminals include a tourist office, air-conditioned entrance hall, car parking facility, phone, toilets, showers and baby changing area. From the port, ferries can be taken to Corsica, Calvi, Bastia, Ajaccio and Ile Rousse.
Calvi is a small town on the north west coast of Corsica in an idyllic location with a large sheltered bay to the front and the mountains behind. At the northern end of the town and towering above the port is the citadel. The citadel is the main monument in Calvi and was built over an extended period from the 13th to the 16th century. Pass through the citadel gateway to see the governors palace (Caserne Sanpiero). The castle itself is not open to the public, although you can walk around the ramparts, pausing for numerous photo opportunities as you go, and then venture in through the narrow cobbled streets and passages of the citadel to see the cathedral. Also is Calvi is the Cathedral of St Jean Baptiste, which is a 16th century baroque style reconstruction of an earlier church that once stood on the site. The highlights of the cathedral are inside, where you can see several items of interest including a large 15th century painting called L'Annonciation (by Babrabagelata), a 15th century black statue of Christ and renaissance period baptism fonts.
The site of the house that is said to be the birthplace of Christopher Columbus is also in the citadel, and is marked by a statue, but note that although Calvi claims to be the birthplace of Christopher Columbus this claim should be considered as unproven.
