Located in the haute-Corse department of France, in the north east of the island of Corsica lies the town of Bastia. The town is Corsica's main hub for commercial activity and is also its principal port, which is in fact divided into three parts. The old port ("Vieux Port") lies in a narrow cove and is mainly used by non-commercial operators such as pleasure and fishing boats. The commercial ferry port is a little north of the town and even further to the north is the Toga Marina which is mainly used by leisure craft such as yachts and sailing boats.
There are a number of visitor attractions in the town including The Museum of Corsica. There is also The Fortress with its keep and 16th century bell tower which provides great views over the old port, Terra Vecchia, the mountains and the coast. There is also the former palace of the Genoese governors which is now home to the museum of Corsican Ethnography.
The ferry Port of Bastia links Bastia to France (Marseille, Nice and Toulon) and Italy (Genoa, La Spezzia, Livorno, Piombino, Savona, Portoferraio).
The French city of Marseille lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast in the south of France and is France's second largest city, known the world over for its amazing beaches and large port. Visitors to the city will find much to see and do including some charming districts filled with busy bazaars and street markets. This is particularly the case in the area around the port. Popular attractions in the city include the Basilique Notre Dame de La Garde which can be found on the south side of the Vieux Port. Also of interest in Marseille is the Chateau d'If and the Centre de la Vieille Charite which is a large exhibition centre that dates back to the 17th century and can be found in the Panier district of the city. For lovely views of the sea you should head to the beautiful La Cathedrale de la Nouvelle Major and the grand Palais du Pharo which is on the waterfront and was once the home of Napoleon III and now hosts many exhibitions.
