Ajaccio Marseille Ferry reviews

  • "Great in every way apart from the lack of air conditioning in our cabin"

    This was lovely and very convenient, food was delicious and the whole trip should have been very relaxing but there was no air conditioning in our 4 person cabin (don't know if it was broken or is always like that) so we roasted and didn't sleep very well.

  • "First class journey"

    The onshore pedestrian waiting area was very poor: not even a toilet.The cabin was delightful, the dinner was delicious, the announcements were clear. The bus to the port exit was crammed, but helpful.

Ajaccio Guide

Ajaccio is the largest settlement on the French island of Corsica. The town is perhaps most famous for being the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte in 1769. He was born in Casa Buonaparte which is now open to the public. The town's airport, Ajaccio napoleon Bonaparte Airport, has also been dedicated to him. Lying around 210 miles to the south east of Marseilles, the town is located on the south west coast of Corsica and has a sheltered position at the bottom of wooded hills on the northern shore of the Gulf of Ajaccio. The town's harbour is located to the east of the original citadel below a hill overlooking a peninsular which protects the harbour.

There are almost daily ferries operating from Ajaccio to the ports of Marseilles, Toulon and Nice on the French mainland. These services are supplemented by ferries to Livorno on the Italian mainland and to Sardinia, along with services to Calvi and Propriano.

Ajaccio has also become a stopover for cruises with a total of 418,086 passengers in 2007 - by far the largest in Corsica and the second in France (after Marseille, but ahead of Nice/Villefranche-sur-Mer and Cannes).


Marseille Guide

The French city of Marseille lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast in the south of France and is France's second largest city, known the world over for its amazing beaches and large port. Visitors to the city will find much to see and do including some charming districts filled with busy bazaars and street markets. This is particularly the case in the area around the port. Popular attractions in the city include the Basilique Notre Dame de La Garde which can be found on the south side of the Vieux Port. Also of interest in Marseille is the Chateau d'If and the Centre de la Vieille Charite which is a large exhibition centre that dates back to the 17th century and can be found in the Panier district of the city. For lovely views of the sea you should head to the beautiful La Cathedrale de la Nouvelle Major and the grand Palais du Pharo which is on the waterfront and was once the home of Napoleon III and now hosts many exhibitions.
