Excellent crossing, peaceful, comfortable, good lunch in restaurant, reasonably cheerful crew. Easiest way to travel between France and Corsica though rather an early start.

Unlike our ferry crossing on the outward journey with MOBY Lines from Genoa to Bastia, the return trip with Corsica Ferries was well organized. Boarding went quite smoothly. The facilities on board, catering and customer service were very good. It was a very enjoyable trip. The next time we go to Corsica, we will definitely choose Corsica Ferries.

Located in the Haute-Corse region of France, Ile Rousse is a town on the island of Corsica. The town was originally named Isola Rossa, the Red Island, when it was founded in 1758 by Pasquale Paoli. Its name was in reference of the ochre colour of a rocky islet that served as a natural harbour. One interesting fact is that despite Corsica being a French island, Ile Rousse is only one of two town on the island that have French names. The other town have all retained their original Italian names.
The town is a great place to spend a holiday and attracts many visitors as a result. The beach at Plaga de Rindara, to the south of the town, is lovely and definitely worth a visit. There is also a small rocky island to the north of the town that is good to explore. There are a number of beautiful late 18th and early 19th century buildings in the town which visitors can't help admiring whilst taking a leisurely stroll through the town. In Place Paoli, in the centre of the town, visitors will find a bust of Pasquale Paoli, the town's founder. Open to the sea to the south west, the square has a covered market, and providing shade under Plane trees, it is a good place to begin a venture into the old and new towns.
From the town's port, ferries depart to Nice, Toulon and Marseille.
