Nice to Corsica Guide

Nice Guide

The French city of Nice is located on the south east coast of the country and lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast. It is the Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur region's second largest city, after Marseille. Over recent years the city has been experiencing an economic, cultural, artistic and architectural revolution. For centuries, however, Nice has been a popular destination for tourists and is within driving distance to other tourist destinations in the region including Cannes, Antibes and Villefrance-sur-Mer. The city caters for the high end traveller, with a number of luxury hotels mainly located around the Promenade des Anglais, down to the most price sensitive, with an equally good selection of backpacker hostels and cheaper hotels. The villas of Nice have never been more popular, with the most exclusive having the best views of the French Riviera coastline, with others looking inland towards the surrounding hills and vineyards.

In the heart of the city is the port which provides ferry connections to Corsica, Calvi, Bastia, Ajaccio and L'Ile Rousse. Passenger facilities at the port's two terminals include a tourist information office, car parking, showers, toilets, public telephones and a baby changing area.

How to get to Nice Ferry Port

If you arriving at Nice Airport (NCE), you can reach Nice port by taking the L2 tram eastbound. The journey is around 6 miles and takes approximately 30 minutes. Tickets are available for as little as $2 and passengers can choose from 735 trams per week. Alternatively, you can get either the 20 or 12 bus to Promenade to Cathédrale - Vieille Ville, which is only a short walk from Nice ferry terminal.

Bastia Guide

The city of Bastia is located on Corsica's east coast and faces Italy with views out to the Tuscan Archipelago, and is the second largest city on Corsica. To the north of Bastia is le Cap Corse which is a peninsula dotted with Genoese Towers and a large nature reserve that is popular with hikers. The town's history, like many in Corsica, begins with the Genoese who ruled Corsica from the 14th century. In the south of the town, the Old Port (Vieux Port) is a popular spot to take a stroll and to see the town's jaded buildings clustered around the fishing port, which are not dissimilar to those you might expect to find in Venice. From the port, a stroll through the Romieu garden will take you to the citadel above the port, which is actually the original Genoese town that was protected by defensive walls, added during the 15th century, and includes the Porte Louis XVI through which you enter the citadel.

The ferry Port of Bastia links the city to France (Marseille, Nice and Toulon) and Italy (Genoa, La Spezzia, Livorno, Piombino, Savona, Portoferraio).
