Hi, we are 2 people travelling to Corsica from June 7-14, 2017. We will arrive in Bonifacio from Sardinia and will return to Sardinia. We will have a rental car the whole time. So would this path work well or is it too rushed?
June 7 Overnight in Propriana
June 8 Overnight in Ajaccio
June 9 Overnight in Porto
June 10 Overnight in Corte
June 11 Overnight in Calvi
June 12 Overnight in Bastia
June 13 Overnight in Bonifacio
Would appreciate any recommendations on good B&B in any of these places.
Can anyone tell me the name of a reputable and reasonably priced private guide for Corsica, France? Name and email and phone would be helpful. .The ones I have contacted seem to be asking unreasonable prices.
I can’t believe that there is only one ferry per week connecting the two islands. Where could I search for that again?
We are a couple, arriving in bastia on 2nd of August for 5 days. we dont speak french and are not willing to drive. We are interessted in Beaches, and sea activities mainly, What would be the most suitable itinerary for us with public transport?
We are planning 3 weeks for Corsica and Sardinia. Idea is to fly into Corsica and out of Sardinia (or vice versa). But can anyone please advice on the most logical thing to do with the rental car? Can we collect in Corsica and hand in in Sardinia, to save the travel back time and ferry costs?
For short: travel-time is June '16, family of 4 (2 kids of 2 and 4 yrs), have own car-seats with us.
I plan for 10-14 days vacations starting 2nd week of September and would like to decide btw. Corsica and Sardinia. Any insight to help my decision will be appreciated. For both places I assume that I will fly (from Israel) to Italy or France and take a ferry to one of the islands.
Any ideas for places to visit by car on this journey?
Does someone know what the costs are for a taxi from Bastia Airport to Port Bonefacio?
Hi, I am arriving in Bastia on the 12th of July for 6 days with my girlfriend. We hope to hire a scooter for our stay. I don't really want to book accommodation in advance as we want our plans to be flexible. We want a couple of days in the mountians and a couple by the ocean. My question is do you think it will ok to find accommodation at this time of year without too much trouble?
What to do and see in Corsica with a 4yr old girl?
I will be in Ajaccio on 10, 11 and 12 June. I had planned to do day trips with Authentic Tours after reading rave reviews, but they are already booked out and my only hope is a cancellation. Most disappointing. Can anyone suggest another reliable company to take me on day trips? Is it possible to hire a private (safe) driver? I definitely want to go to Bonifacio, and was also considering Corte, and Piana and Scandola, but I'm open to suggestion. I don't want to drive myself. If I leave things until my arrival and just go to the tourist bureau, I'm worried I might miss out altogether. I'm happy to do train and boat trips too, as long as they are day trips from Ajaccio. Looking forward to hearing your suggestions.
I will be travelling to Corsica in May. I'd like to buy a prepaid mobile sim in Bonifacio for phonecalls and data. Could someone suggest the best place to buy a sim and the company with the best mobile coverage on the island?
I would appreciate any advice.
We are planning our holidays for the last week of August and We have choosen Porto Veccio to spend one week there.
I ´ve searched the ferry prices and they are quite expensive (500-600euros) for a car w/ 4 people...
My doubt is if normally the prices increases close to the dates or perhaps could make offerts??
By other hand, is any direct ferry to Porto Veccio from France? Because in directferries shows the destination but not timetable.
Can anyone advise me the first train or bus from Ajaacio to Calvi, we will be arriving 07 Aug at night. We would like to travell that night direct to Calenzana, but having been before I don't think it will be possible. I thought maybe a mini bus taxi but don't have any contacts or information. Any help would be great help
We love Corsica and in August this will be our tenth visit. We are staying 6 days in the south near Pinarellu and then 7 days in the Balagne in Speloncato. We need to stay somewhere in the middle for one night between rentals. We are 2 adults and 3 kids (6,8,9) and we love nature and river walks. Any ideas welcome!
Planning a trip for two to Corsica, we would like to see the beaches and towns, and the mountains, and are willing to spend a week or so in one location before travelling to another for a few days. Neither of us can drive and we haven't been able to find any obvious bus/train routes that might take us inland. Is there anywhere at all where we can find the best of both worlds, or is there any public transport that might get us from one to the other?
We had been looking at Aiguilles de Bavella and Bonifacio, just to give you an idea of the sort of thing we were after but are more than flexible on similar locations. Cheers for all your help.
Hi there !

Thanks very much !

We are planning to go to corsica either end of June or mid July for a week.
Looks like the cheapest flights will be to Ajjacio.
I will be 6 months pregnant then.
My questions are:
1 Is corsica a good holiday option for someone that is pregnant? What is the temperarure like June/July?
2. Any suggestions on Itinery for 6/7 days....(starting in Ajjacio)? Idea is to just have a nice relaxing holiday with my husband, I love beaches.
I'd love to get your input on our itinerary. Are we missing anything we should see and do? And/or are the distances we're travelling too far to make this a nice vacation?
We are a family of 3 traveling to Corsica and Italy over the dates of August 22nd - September 1st. We fly into Nice and will take the ferry to Ajaccio. We spend 2 nights at the Radission Blu hotel and will not rent a car for these two days instead opt to visit on foot. Is this doable in this area or do we need a car to get around? If we don't need a car we planned to rent on the day we depart Ajaccio and drive through Sartene stop for lunch do some hiking along the way and take our time. We'll stop oi Bonifaccio and then look for a hotel in the Porto Vechio/Bonifaccio area. We'll spend 2 nights in this area with our rental car so we can driver to beaches, hikes and the like. We plan to take a ferry from Porto Vechio to Naples (if there is one) and then spend 3 days along the Amalfi coast. We then take the train up to Rome where we'll spend the night of September 1st in a hotel and depart for home on an early morning flight September 2nd.
Any comments or suggestions are welcomed.
I have looked everywhere for a ferry that runs from Porto Vechio to Naples in the summer months. There is a line showing on Google maps as an established route and when I Google search this it comes up. However, I have not been able to find anywhere to book this. Is this a valid route?
we would like to travel to corsica by ferry from Nice in early to mid april 2014 which ferries run at that time, we would then want to pick up a car hire in corsica .
We would like to go to Corsica from Marseille in April 2014. Any tips for best place (which town) to stay for about 5-7 days? Once there how can you get around?

Hi, I'm flying to Bastia in October with my 13 year old son (staying for a week), and, in the interest of keeping life simple, want to know where the best locations are within an hour of Bastia to keep him entertained. Thanks
I will be traveling to Corsica in the last week of October. I will be mostly staying in Cargese? What are the things which we should not miss? Any good one-day tours? We won't be renting a car so public transport will be the only option.
Any supermarkets around?
I've booked a hotel room in Ajaccio for late June this year and, seeing the average temperatures of air/sea, i'm a bit concerned that the sea water will be a bit too cold for swimming, especially for children. Should I worry?
Id like to walk the famous gr20 track but I probably wont be able to spend 15 days for walking so I have to decide which part of it to take, northen or southen. I was thinking of walking the northen part from Calenzana to Vizzavona.
1. Has anyone taken it? How was it? Difficoulty in a scale from 1 to 10 where 1 is a walk on a beach and 10 is the hardest track one can imagine?
2. How many refuges were there? Can you camp on the track?
3. What about food? Is it best to take lyophilisated food or can you buy some food in small villages on the track
4. Im planning to go there in september, is it a good time?
5. How to get there the cheapest way? Plane/ferry/car/train? (excluding hitchhiking)
Thanks for your help! :)
I would like to spend a few days in Corsica, but will not have a car. Any suggestions as to what I should see, when is the best month to go, how long I should spend there etc.? Approximate times between destinations by bus would also be helpful. Should I take the ferry from Nice, and if so, where is the best place to arrive in Corsisca?
I looked for options to get from Nice ferry in Porto Vecchio. I found only in Marseille-Porto Vecchio.
I've just booked to camp in a campervan in Corsica (down the road from Aleria in what is a naturist campsite during the warmer months of the year, but is a regular campsite with the added bonus of an onsite spa this time of the year!).
My questions are many, but mainly:
1. I want to swim. I keep hearing the water will be too cold, but will it really be cold, cold or just med cold? (I swim in the English Channel in December usually, as a barometer)
2. Has anyone else stayed at this campsite: reviews?
3. What is there to do in Corsica as a single female in November - is it safe to hike alone, etc?
4. Is it expensive to buy food (from supermarkets) in Corsica? I only ask this as I'm coming from mainland France and so have an opportunity to stock up before I set sail if necessary.
Any other tips or advice would be greatfully appreciated!
