Bastia Guide

Located in the haute-Corse department of France, in the north east of the island of Corsica lies the town of Bastia. The town is Corsica's main hub for commercial activity and is also its principal port, which is in fact divided into three parts. The old port ("Vieux Port") lies in a narrow cove and is mainly used by non-commercial operators such as pleasure and fishing boats. The commercial ferry port is a little north of the town and even further to the north is the Toga Marina which is mainly used by leisure craft such as yachts and sailing boats.

There are a number of visitor attractions in the town including The Museum of Corsica. There is also The Fortress with its keep and 16th century bell tower which provides great views over the old port, Terra Vecchia, the mountains and the coast. There is also the former palace of the Genoese governors which is now home to the museum of Corsican Ethnography.

The ferry Port of Bastia links Bastia to France (Marseille, Nice and Toulon) and Italy (Genoa, La Spezzia, Livorno, Piombino, Savona, Portoferraio).

Golfo Aranci Guide

Golfo Aranci is the name of gulf that is located on the north eastern coast of the island of Sardinia, Italy. Thanks to the port here, the town is blessed with excellent connections by ferry to the rest of Italy and is only a few kilometers from Porto Rotondo and 15 km from Olbia. There are disagreements as to the exact meaning of Golfo Aranci's name. One meaning has it that the name stems from a shipwreck that was full of oranges and the other, and to some the most convincing explanation, is linked to the Sardinian term 'granci', which are the crabs that are found in the area.

Visitors to Golfo Aranci also tend to visit the marine reserve that is on the nearby island of Tavolara. Also popular with visitors are the wide range of water sports that are on offer which enables visitors to experience first hand the lovely, warm clear waters that are found off the town's shores. Inland, there is the Cala Moresca pine forest which is easily reached on foot or by bicycle.

There are daily ferries operating from the town's port to Civitavecchia, Livorno and Fiumincino.
