Travel tip: Choose a destination port close to your accomodation

The roads in Corsica are winding and traveling by car can take quite some time. It is therefore sometimes a good idea to book a ferry that docks close to your destination. Even if that means that the crossing takes considerably longer.

Ferry from France to Corsica

From France, you can book the crossing to Corsica from:

  1. Marseille (Corsica Linea, la Méridionale)
  2. Toulon (Corsica Ferries)
  3. Nice (Corsica Ferries)

You will then arrive in one of the port cities of Corsica. These are Bastia, Ile Rousse, Ajaccio and Porto Vecchio.

1) Ferry from Marseille to Corsica

Several shipping companies sail from Marseille to Corsica. For example, you can sail with Corsica Linea, but you can also opt for la Méridionale. However, the latter is a bit more difficult to book because the website is not aimed at English ferry travelers.

Travelling and Staying in Corsica

Ferries in the port of Bastia

The ferry to Corsica is a good alternative to the plane because the flights to this island are quite pricey.

If you go by car, make sure you are at the port on time. Especially in the summer, it can be very busy on the southern French roads and at the ferry service. You would do well to plan your route carefully. You can also consider staying overnight at one of the departure ports. Then you know for sure that you can get to the ferry on time.

Corsica is quite large and there are no major highways. So plan your route well. It can be very useful to book a ferry close to your accommodation instead of traveling a greater distance by car.

Frequently Asked Questions: Corsica

Ferry prices have also risen sharply in Corsica in recent years. For a return ticket in high season with a car, you will soon lose a total of € 200 to € 500. You will not find prices of € 135 for a return ticket with a car – as before. Without a car, it is about € 90  per person for a return ticket. Prices in this area are also heavily dependent on supply and demand.

This depends on where you are leaving from. If you leave from France, this is a lot longer (6 to 9 hours) than, for example, Italy (3 to 6 hours) and the other island of Sardinia (1 to 3 hours). We just have to hope they buy those Fast Catamaran Ferries out there on the Mediterranean someday.
