  • "Bastia - Livorno"

    Everything was fine, but only thing that wasn't organized well is delay from 21pm on 22.30pm. Think that we should be informed maybe one-two days earlier that ferry is going on 22.30pm, not on 21pm , so we can better organize our time. Best regards!

Golfo Aranci Guide

Located on the island of Sardinia, the Italian town of Golfo Aranci is in the Province of Olbia-Tempio and is around 200 km to the north of Cagliari and 13 km to the north east of Olbia. It also lies on the gulf that is located on the north eastern coast of Sardinia. There are two possible meanings for the name Golfo Aranci. The first centres around a shipwreck that was carrying oranges and the second is linked to the Sardinian term "granci' which are crabs that can be found in the area. Of the two, the second is perhaps the most plausible. Many visitors to the town visit the beaches found on the gulf itself, however, the town's beaches are also beautiful and include Cala Moresca, Cala Greca, Cala Sabina and the spiaggia Bianca. Also located nearby is the island of Tavolara, which is a marine reserve, and the beautiful Capo Coda Cavallo. Finally, the islands crystal clear, warm waters make it a haven for visitors who want to engage in water sports, especially scuba diving.

From the port connections are made to Italy via daily ferries to the ports of Civitavecchia, Livorno and Fiumicino. Facilities at this small port are limited to a departure lounge, café and a small convenience store.


Porto Vecchio Guide

The town of Porto Veccio is located on the island of Corsica and lies around 65 km to the east of Sartene and 25 km from Bonifacio. The town was built on the site of former salt marshes and is the reason why the region was not developed sooner because the marshes were infested with mosquitoes and malaria until to 20th century. However, during the 20th century the marshes were drained which enabled the town to develop into the resort that is visible today. Despite this relatively recent development, there was a citadel located on a hill that dates back to the 16th century, when the Genoese ruled Corsica, and today forms one part of the current town, with the other part being the town's marina. The picturesque marina has many cafes and restaurants to enjoy and is a great place to stroll through and spend a summer's evening relaxing with friends and family. Located within the citadel are the original defences and ramparts, around the Place de la Republique, and a number of charming old buildings that line narrow streets and squares.
