Marseille Ajaccio Ferry reviews

  • "British travel to Corsica via Marsielle"

    The first thing you need to know is that the departure port is tiny. Unlike some British ports which have cafes, bars and some shopping. Marsielle port consists of 2 vending machines, toilets and the check in desk. That’s it. The port is located about 5 mins walk to the left of Terraces du Port . Our cab driver to us to the totally wrong place and we’re faced with a 30 minute walk so watch out for that. Boarding starts about 2 hours before departure, so lots of time to have a drink. You get on a bus this drops you off at the door where cars enter the ferry, watch out for lorries and cars. On board the bar, restaurant and food kiosk on one deck. There was only one veggie option in the restaurant and this contained an allergen of wild mushrooms. The pizzas from the kiosk are amazing and take 2 mins to cook. If it’s a busy crossing queue goes quiet after 9. But it’s a half hour queue before then. Wine is great . Toilets are clean. Few staff speak English

  • "Great ferry crossing"

    Really enjoyed our overnight sailing on the Girolata. Very good looking ship, comfortable cabin, friendly staff and good food and drink. Being able to board and access our cabin 2 hours before we sailed was a bonus.

Marseille Guide

The French city and port of Marseille lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast in the south of France. It is France's second largest city and France's largest commercial port. Stretching to the east from the Old Port to the Reformes Quarter is the city's main thoroughfare. At the entrance to the Old Port are two large forts, Fort Saint Nicolas on the south and Fort Saint Jean on the north. The Frioul Archipelago is located in the Bay of Marseille and is made up of four islands. Located on one of the islands is the Chateau d'If which was made famous by the novel by Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo. The city's centre has a number of pedestrianised streets, most notably the Rue St Ferreol, Cours Julien near the Music Conservatory, the Cours Honore-d'Estienne-d'Orves which is off the Old Port, and the area around the Hotel de Ville.

Four ferry companies run routes out of Marseille and offer scheduled services to Corsica, Sardinia, Algeria and Tunisia. There are four separate terminals and are all in the "gares maritimes sud" (southern terminals) district. National Terminals One and Two serve passengers to and from Corsica and Sardinia, while International Terminals Three and Four serve passengers to and from Algeria and Tunisia.

Ajaccio Guide

Ajaccio is the largest town on the French island of Corsica and is located on its south west coast, around 210 miles to the south east of Marseille, on the French mainland. The harbour in the town lies at the bottom of a hill that overlooks the peninsular which protects the harbour, and to the east of the original citadel, and on the northern shore of the Gulf of Ajaccio. Napoleon Bonaparte is arguably the town's most famous resident who was born in the Casa Buonaparte in 1769. His former house is now open to the public. The town's lovely mellow-toned buildings, lively cafes and marina make the town an ideal place to stroll through and explore.

The town's harbour is a major stop over for cruises and is the second busiest in France, after Marseille. Ferries from the port depart almost daily to Marseille, Toulon and Nice on the French mainland. There are also seasonal services to Livorno, Sardinia, Calvi and Propriano. The two major shipping companies providing these links are SNCM and Corsica Ferries.
