One of the ways to reach Corsica is by crossing: Toulon – Ajaccio. The ferry usually takes between 8 and 10 hours to this city. That is a relatively long crossing. The travel time is often so long because the ferry sails at night and then has a somewhat slower pace, which saves on fuel and therefore the price.
