"Good trip and good efficient service on board"
Efficient check-in: all you need is a copy of your voucher to go on board, without collecting the tickets. Excellent facilities on board. Very friendly staff, everything is fast and easy. Even the toilets on the main deck were clean after so many people got seasick during the crossing. Savona is a very nice harbour and so easy to reach from the highway!

We went to Corsica for the first time with our three children and a caravan, what an exciting adventure. For the children, travelling by boat was something they looked forward to. We, as parents, were worried and thought something might go wrong. Are we going to arrive on time? Will the cabin be clean and big enough for all of us? We kept asking ourselves all those questions but everything was fantastic. The cabin, a luxury outside cabin was spacious and accommodated the whole family. We slept well and arrived on the island the next morning. Before we travelled, I had a lot of questions about the trip and all of them were quickly answered by Direct Ferries. See you again next year!

The Italian town of Savona is located in the northern Italian region of Liguria, in the Riviera de Ponente on the Mediterranean Sea coast. The town's industrial past is dominated by its iron industry and at one point it had many iron-works and foundries, shipbuilding, railway workshops, engineering shops and a brass foundry. Christopher Columbus was one of the town's most famous residents who reputedly farmed land in the area while chronicling his adventures. 'Columbus' House' is situated between vegetable crops and fruit trees, in the Savona hills, and is one of several residences in Liguria associated with the explorer.
There are many things to see in the town and its medieval centre is worth a visit. The Baroque Cathedral di Nostra Signora Assunta managed to survive the destruction by Genoese forces in the 16th century and so too did imposing Fortezza del Priamar. The fortress guards a couple of sculpture museums and the Civico Museo Storico Archeologico, which displays archaeological finds.
From the town's port Corsica Ferries is the principal ferry operator to Corsica, offering a weekly sailing to Bastia and a weekly sailing to Ile Rousse and Clavi. The crossing time is around 3 hours for all three destinations.
The city of Bastia is located on Corsica's east coast and faces Italy with views out to the Tuscan Archipelago, and is the second largest city on Corsica. To the north of Bastia is le Cap Corse which is a peninsular dotted with Genoese Towers and a large nature reserve that is popular with hikers. The town's history, like many in Corsica, begins with the Genoese who ruled Corsica from the 14th century. In the south of the town, the Old Port (Vieux Port) is a popular spot to take a stroll and to see the town's jaded buildings clustered around the fishing port, which are not dissimilar to those you might expect to find in Venice. From the port, a stroll through the Romieu garden will take you to the citadel above the port, which is actually the original Genoese town that was protected by defensive walls, added during the 15th century, and includes the Porte Louis XVI through which you enter the citadel.
The ferry Port of Bastia links the city to France (Marseille, Nice and Toulon) and Italy (Genoa, La Spezzia, Livorno, Piombino, Savona, Portoferraio).
