    By boat:

    The most practical way and also my suggestion to reach Corsica is by boat. There are numerous ferry boats from Italy, Spain and France. All companies offer special tariffs for various travel solutions at the end of week or in the middle of the week..There are six commercial ports: Bonifacio, Calvi, Bastia, Ile Rousse,Ajaccio, Propriano,Porto-Vecchio served by five shipping lines providing daily return trips from mainland France. Spain and Italy. Crossing times will vary depending on where you travel from and to. From Livorno, Genoa or Nice crossing last about four or five houres and crossings from Marseille are generally overnight or take all day.

    Public transport is poor in Corsica especialy by bus. Travel by bus can turn into a nightmare, so getting around by car is the best option, either you hire one or have your own. Railways offer stunning views hidden to road travellers, but the trains are slower and limited to the three lines connecting Ajaccio with Corte, Bastia and Calvi.

    The most of tourists in Corsica travel by car because the best thing of Corsica is its scenery and driving around is a plesaure. You can stop whenever you find a nice spot take a picture or go to the small beach.

    The roads in Corsica can be winding at times but the infrastructure has massively improved over the past 10 years with many “Route Nationale” (the main axis in Corsica) seeing reduction in travel time of 10 to sometime 30% through cutting of turns and widening of the roads. Because the winding roads prove to be fun on a motorbike and taking over is easier than with a car, the island is also popular with bikers
