      What is the most practical accomodation (e.g.hotel or b&b) for this event, because I shall not have a car? And how can I get to the place by train from Swiss? Is it possible to be there without a car?

    • Day trips from Ajaccio

      Corsica May 11, 2015 at 2:42 PM

      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.

      £80 for me and the family, it's a deal!. We'd normally fly to the continent then hire a car but as we'd be going to France or Germany anyway this time it's a no brainer.
      I've never taken a car ferry before, how long before the scheduled departure should I aim for. I can't find this obvious piece of advice anywhere.

      by bplobrano Online Now Aug 31, 2010 at 7:43 PM

      My g.g.grandfather Nathaniel Powell & his brother Thomas were lace makers from England living in Calais in the 1840s. Most of their children were born there before they came to the US arounf 1850 and settled in CONN & Philadelphia. Two of the sons(my g.grandfather) started a stocking mill in Philadelphia in 1879 and became quite successful. We want to see the lace museum and the area of St. Pierre where they lived. We are wondering where the best archives are--perhaps city hall? Could we find a history buff to hire for a tour. We will only come down from London on the train for the day--9:30am-9:30pm. perhaps on Sept 9th.

      My wife and I are in our 70's and will be arriving in Calais (by train) from Rome.

      We want to cross the Channel by boat so as to see the White Cliffs of Dover from the sea.

      Can somebody give me some advice please......

      Is the railway station close to the "ferry" terminal....and how do we get from the train to the boat, ie is a taxi applicable and what are the costs etc.

      How often do ferries depart Calais and do we board as a "foot" passenger or otherwise....and do we have to have our luggage with us, or is it booked separately?

      Finally, an indication of the fares to cross the Channel would be appreciated.
