"Despite improvements always happy "
The ferry meet the usual standards in terms of equipment and meals. Unfortunately, the hygienic condition in terms of toilets. Partly defective, often without toilet paper and the cleanliness, well. Exemplary waste separation is on board. Stupid it is then only if it is then usually as here no waste container and the waste then stop the other lands. the staff is ok .. One Way was on time, return 45 minutes later coffee. okay and cheap, hot snacks so-so.

I had a very nice journey, the ferry was clean, the restaurant was quite good, the only negative aspect was the lack of information, apart from that I would make this trip again.

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 French town of Calvi is located on the north west coast of the island of Corsica in a large sheltered bay with lovely mountains providing a scenic backdrop. Looming large above the town to the north is the citadel and was built between the 13th and 16th centuries and is a popular attraction in the town. Once you pass through the citadel's gateway, visitors will find the Governors Palace (Caserne Sanpiero). Unfortunately the castle is not open to the public but it is possible to walk along the ramparts.
Also popular in Calvi is the Cathedral of St Jean Baptiste which was built in the 16th century on the site of an earlier church, and is of a Baroque architectural style. Located within the cathedral are a number of interesting items including a large 15th century painting named L'Annonciation by Babrabagelata, a 15th century black statue of Christ and a renaissance period baptism font.
Another popular attraction in the city is the house that is said to be the birthplace of Christopher Columbus although the claim is unproven. The house is contained within the citadel and is marked by a statue.
