      Has anyone taken the ferry from Nice to Corsica? I have a few questions.
      Are restaurants, shops in geneal and points of interest open?
      What is the livliest city to visit in January or February?
      Does one need a car to get around?
      Thank you,

    • Provence France1 week extra

      Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Yesterday

      I will be ending a tour of southern France on a Thursday - end of Sept 2017. The tour will include: Pont du Gard, Arles, Les Baux, and Nice. I will have 7 days (following Thursday night) to get back to Paris for return flight.
      What would be a good trip? I have not seen Monaco, Antibes, Cannes, Marseilles, Aix en Provence, Vaison la Romaine. I would not mind going to Orange again. Prefer TGV rail over driving, but could rent a car for short trips.

    • Summer holiday

      France Jan 11, 2017 at 3:11 AM

      Sorry to hear this site is shutting down.

      I had an incredible summer honeymoon in Switzerland thanks entirely to commenters on this forum. I'm really grateful.

      This question is very broad but I thought I might get lucky again!

      Hoping for a may/June family holiday this year.
      Traveling with a three year old and a one year old.
      Beach, hotel, pools, nature, good food, a nice little town nearby.
      We really want it to be child friendly with food and drink readily available but not too big a complex.
      Also considering Italy and Greece, I'll post over there too.

      Many thanks if you have any thoughts!

      Paris with kids

      Paris Jan 13, 2017 at 6:23 AM

      Hello Paris experts ;-)

      We'll be attending the U2 show in Paris on July 25 and want to add a couple of extra days in and around the city.
      I don't yet know where we'll be staying.

      Our boys - who will be 9 and 11 by then - will be joining us. In fact it was their idea go along to a show and then our oldest one decided he wanted to see the Eiffeltower ... And what's a mum to do then but to buy tickets for the Stade de France then ... anything to keep the young ones happy (and now I can 'blame' them for the trip ;-) ).

      We'll likely arrive there around noon on friday 21st and leave for home again on wednesday 26th.

      Do any of you have a suggestion as on what kids might enjoy doing. The Eiffeltower is a must. Besides that: they don't mind a museum (as long as it doesn't take an entire day), they like history and they're not fussy about walking.
      I've read something about the sewers tour ... do you think that's worth doing with kids?

      As always: thanks for your input!

      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.

    • 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.

      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?

      Itinerary Advice

      Corsica Feb 5, 2014 at 1:58 PM

      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.
