Our round trip between Bastia and Savona went well in all respects. Everything was well organized. Food was reasonable and fairly priced. Cabin was good and I recommend as it allows you to arrive with a good night's sleep. On--board directions are not so clear to a first time traveller.

Both crossings to Corsica went perfectly well. The ship left and arrived on time on both the outward and return. Not so used to travelling SNCM. We booked a cabin on the return trip and liked that fact that we had somewhere to leave our luggage. We were four adults with 4 motorcycles, and everyone had their own luggage. The extra fee for the cabin isn’t that much considering you get the best service. We will travel AGAIN with Corsica Ferries

The only negative point of this passage is the fact that pedestrian in Savona have extremely poor connections to the station and allowed to leave the pedestrian as a last resort. When you enter the pedestrian Bastia minibuses will be brought directly to the ship and may purely be the first - in Savona one is simply left in a harbor, almost half an hour drive from Savona train station is itself away by taxi in the morning traffic. Somewhere there would be a bus - but since we could not take care of it - we would not have caught our train!

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).
The provincial Italian town of Savona is one of northern Italy's major sea ports and set amongst the scenery of the Liguria region, it is more than just an industrial and port town. Savona lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast around 25 miles to the west of Genoa and 93 miles to the east of Nice in France. For those visitors who choose to explore the town will find a medieval fortress, art galleries and cathedrals that sit alongside brightly coloured coastal homes. Although the city seems to attract fewer tourists than some of its Mediterranean neighbours it is easily reached by road, train and ferry. This town’s coastal location helped it develop into an important port city whose harbour serves as the areas main industrial hub for automobile exports. Multiple ferries and Mediterranean cruise ships also frequently depart from Savona’s harbour.
In the town, the 16th century Fortezza Priamar overlooks the Mediterranean Sea and was constructed by Genoese workers to demonstrate their dominance over the Savonese which they had just defeated in battle. Another well preserved 16th century building in the town is the Cattedrale di Nostra Signora Assunta which was constructed to replace the 13the century Church of St. Francis, which was falling apart.
