  • "Hot Day in June"

    Excellent crossing, peaceful, comfortable, good lunch in restaurant, reasonably cheerful crew. Easiest way to travel between France and Corsica though rather an early start.

  • "Well organised"

    Unlike our ferry crossing on the outward journey with MOBY Lines from Genoa to Bastia, the return trip with Corsica Ferries was well organized. Boarding went quite smoothly. The facilities on board, catering and customer service were very good. It was a very enjoyable trip. The next time we go to Corsica, we will definitely choose Corsica Ferries.

  • "Everything went perfect"

    The booking with Direct Ferries was perfect, no surprise at the Boarding on the boat. Corsica Ferries is a great company: very well equipped ships, with a good gastronomic restaurant on board. The crew was efficient, and the boarding fast.

Ile Rousse Guide

Located in the Haute-Corse region of France, Ile Rousse is a town on the island of Corsica. The town was originally named Isola Rossa, the Red Island, when it was founded in 1758 by Pasquale Paoli. Its name was in reference of the ochre colour of a rocky islet that served as a natural harbour. One interesting fact is that despite Corsica being a French island, Ile Rousse is only one of two town on the island that have French names. The other town have all retained their original Italian names.

The town is a great place to spend a holiday and attracts many visitors as a result. The beach at Plaga de Rindara, to the south of the town, is lovely and definitely worth a visit. There is also a small rocky island to the north of the town that is good to explore. There are a number of beautiful late 18th and early 19th century buildings in the town which visitors can't help admiring whilst taking a leisurely stroll through the town. In Place Paoli, in the centre of the town, visitors will find a bust of Pasquale Paoli, the town's founder. Open to the sea to the south west, the square has a covered market, and providing shade under Plane trees, it is a good place to begin a venture into the old and new towns.

From the town's port, ferries depart to Nice, Toulon and Marseille.


Nice Guide

The French city of Nice is the capital of the Cote d'Azur and is a world famous cosmopolitan tourist destination and is perfect for sun lovers. The coastline around the city is spectacular and is popular all year round with its warm and sunny summer months, and mild winters. Many visitors to the resort choose to simply relax on one of the many beaches or to swim in the azure waters off the coast. There are many free stretches of public beach in the city but there are also around 15 private beaches, called 'plages concedees', where sun loungers can be hired.

Another popular pastime whilst in the city is to take a stroll along the Promenade des Anglais (the Promenade of the English) which dates back nearly 200 years and borders the city's Mediterranean Sea coast and runs for about 6 km. There are many beautiful spots along the promenade where visitors like to sit and take in the spectacular views. The coastline of Nice is full of tourist attractions, and nearby there are also a number of appealing Côte d'Azur towns and cities. Also close to Nice are many traditional Provençal villages, which are full of character.
