Nice Ile Rousse Ferry reviews

  • "Corsica Trip"

    Excellent - only one comment ... some passengers were laid out on seating, and some were “picknicking”, which I find disrespectful to the ferry line

  • "calm sailing"

    Our ferry trip from Nice, France to Corsica was calm, sunny, we sat outside most of the trip & enjoyed our time on board very much. The food was good, lovely salads, etc. Direct ferries kept us up-to date on sailing times, including the fact that due to a storm coming, we would be leaving 1 hour early, which we did. I would suggest arriving about 2 hours before sailing just in case they need to leave early & you don't get their email.

  • "A comfortable trip"

    I have used the Nice - Ile Rousse ferry (and return journey) twice yearly for a number of years and was pleasantly surprised this time by the high standard of the facilities and personal service on the 'Corsica Victoria' which I can confidently recommend.

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.

Ile Rousse Guide

L'ile-Rousse is a town that lies on a beautiful bay in the Balagne region of north western Corsica and has lovely white sandy beaches and is known for its red porphyry islets, which give the town its name. The town is one of the areas nicest places to visit and aside from its beaches it is surrounded by beautiful hills and mountains. Streets in the old town are named after people such as Pascal Paoli, Napoleon and Louise Phillippe and are lovely to stroll along and tend to be located around the town's main square, Place Paoli, which is shaded by lovely old Plain trees.

For the best views of the town it is best to head north to the Ile de la Pietra, and then on to the lighthouse. At sunset, the setting of the town against the red granite backdrop, is a stunning view. Also in this area is a Genoese watchtower which is also popular with visitors.

Located close to L'Ile-Rousse is the village of Monticello which is surrounded by olive trees and has charming small streets, ancient buildings, imposing houses, chapels, archaeological sites and walking paths. The village also offers one of the most beautiful viewpoints in Corsica.
