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
Can I book online a boat trip in Bonifacio? Thanks.
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!
I will be traveling to Italy, and would like to know if anyone knows what website to visit for info on the local buses here in Bastia, or if anyone knows the hours of the local buses here in Bastia (I live by Furiani village). Thank you so much :-)
where to eat in Bonifacio? Lunch and dinner
Hi can anyone suggest where near Figari airport or Bonifacio we can find a large (ideally hyper) supermarket? We went a few years ago and spent a lot of money in local small supermarkets.
Also are the large supermarkets closed on sundays?
I will stay in Il Rouse this summer and will travel without a car.
Does anyone know how to get from Il Rouse to Bastia?
Thank you in advance!
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 !
So, I'm planning a trip in Corsica with my boyfriend and I have no idea where to go, what to do. In fact, I'm not good at planning so I was wondering if any of you had some advices ?
I found the way to go there, by boat, but I have no idea where to stay ! Wich part of the Island do you recommand ? And do you have any activity in mind that isn't too expensive ?
Thanks very much !
how does it cost a cheap car and motorbike for a day?and a week card for train or bus!in July!can i do free camping?
!please answer soon!thanks!
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.
What options of a return airport transfer (Ajaccio-Porto Vecchio), for a family of 2 adults+2 small children, do we have? What would be the costs, or where could we find them?
Flights arrive and depart around 11:00 am
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 are tyring to figure out how to travel from Sicily to the Porto Vecchio area in late June and it is proving to be rather difficult. Right now it looks like we will have to fly from Catania to Rome to Pisa, take a taxi to the Livorno port and then a ferry to Bastia. With departing Catania at 6:15 am we can make it to Bastia at 18:30 (all going well!). But then we have to get to the Porto Vecchio area. If anyone has any advice on the best way to do that I would greatly appreciate it!
Is there a lot of English speakers in Ajaccio?
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?
Two retired folks.
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?
Can anyone recommend a reliable Taxi Firm willing to quote by email (rather than by phone) for a two way journey for 2 pax, out on Sunday 8 Sept. back on Sunday 22 Sept.
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!
Is the tourist train active? When we were there in May 2011 it was not. Can someone update us on the status?
I am having hard time finding car rental companies in Bonifacio. We would need to return the car in Bastia airport. It looks like there are some options in Figari aiport, but there is no bus service from Bonifacio to Figari. Ideally, would like to rent a car in Bonifacio after arriving on a ferry from Sardinia. Anybody knows of local companies? (looks like Europcar has an office there but they don't have a drop-off location in Bastia airport).
Appreciate the info!
Am planning a 2-week vacation to Europe over X'mas to early Jan, inclusive of 5-6 day perhaps snowboarding in Les Arcs (France). Am thinking of going to Corsica to visit friends for a few days :
- Any thing to do/see there over X'mas/winter?
- Presumably I can fly there from either Paris or Milan airport?
- What about Sardinia, easy to get there? Any point in going there over X'mas?
Understandably some parts of Europe do get quite sleepy over winter/Xmas especially the non-touristy places/small towns. So just trying to figure out where we can go for 1 week over X'mas, before we hit the slopes.
Hi. I read that there are farm-inn accomodations throughout the island. Is there a website I can use to search them? I am not having much luck finding any information online. Thank you.
