"Great way to get to Sardinia"
I took the Kallisto (?) from Marseille to Porto Torres and splurged on a cabin with a double bed. A great view out the back of the boat was appreciated, as was the overall condition of the ship — it was worth the expense. Crew were great, and I appreciated them not ejecting the passengers from cabins too early for those continuing past Corsica to Sardinia (the announcement came about an hour before arrival). Shuttlebusses to and from the terminals (both of which were a bit 'out of the way') were appreciated, and the one at Porto Torres takes you right to the railway station (though it's a 2hr wait for the train so best see the town first!)

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.
The Italian town of Porto Torres lies on the west coast of the island of Sardinia, and is around 25 km to the east of the Gorditanian Peninsula. The town, with its 2,000 years of history, is a lovely place to visit and contains both a mass of culture and beautiful beaches. The town was founded in 46 AD by Julius Caesar and still visible are the remains of the ancient town of Turris Libisonis. A popular attraction in the town is the National Archaeological Museum and archaeological site where important artefacts are on display that include the ancient spa and where it is possible to walk along the paved streets and see the houses that are decorated with lovely multi coloured marble. Also in the town are a number of parks and green areas that are open to the public and are a great place to relax and take in the flora and fauna. There are also many restaurants in Porto Torres where visitors can sample and enjoy the local cuisine.
The port is connected by ferries with Genoa, Marseille, Toulon, Barcelona, Civitavecchia, Propriano.
