"A trip to Corsica"
We travelled during the day. It was a very good journey, we'll use Corsica Sardinia Ferries again. I just have a comment regarding the inbound ferry (the Mega Express Five I think). It's a shame that the restaurant is located at the centre of the boat without any sea view. However, you can see the sea from the cafeteria.

We've been travelling regularly to Corsica for a long time, but it's the first time we booked through directferries. The service was good and the fare interesting. However, the prestation of Corsica Ferries are still really average (the toilets of the Mega Express Five were dirty, the food is expensive, there are not enough seats for everyone...)

"a beautiful cruise"
By travelling during the day, you start the holidays with a beautiful Mediterranean cruise aboard a boat with lounges decorated in lilac or lavender blue and equiped with confortable seats and benches on which people can lay down. I like the sea air and there are corridors where you can be close to the sea and feel the air while looking at Corsica becoming closer. I enjoyed the outbound journey with a calm sea and the inbound journey with a strong wind and waves. It was great.

The French city of Toulon lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast in the south of France. It is a major French naval base and consequently has a large military harbour which is home to the French Navy aircraft carrier Charles De Gaulle and her battle group along with the rest of the French Mediterranean Fleet. Toulon's history has strong links with many industries including shipbuilding, wine making, armaments, paper, maps, shoes, electronic equipment and the manufacture of aeronautical equipment.
Toulon's Old Town is located between the port, the Boulevard de Strasbourg and the Cours Lafayette, and is characterised by narrow streets, fountains and small squares and is where the city's cathedral is located. Selling local produce every morning, the area is also home to the popular Provencal market. Unfortunately the area fell into disrepair during the 1980's and 1990's but fortunately many of the town's fountains and squares have since been restored which has attracted many new shops to open up.
The city's port has two ferry terminals and has good passenger facilities including cafes, vending machines, a snack bar, toilets and long stay and short stay car parking. Ferry services operating from the port depart to Ajaccio, Bastia, Ile Rousse and Civitavecchia.
L'ile-Rousse is a town that lies on a beautiful bay in the Balagne region of north western Corsica and has lovely white sandy beaches and is known for its red porphyry islets, which give the town its name. The town is one of the areas nicest places to visit and aside from its beaches it is surrounded by beautiful hills and mountains. Streets in the old town are named after people such as Pascal Paoli, Napoleon and Louise Phillippe and are lovely to stroll along and tend to be located around the town's main square, Place Paoli, which is shaded by lovely old Plain trees.
For the best views of the town it is best to head north to the Ile de la Pietra, and then on to the lighthouse. At sunset, the setting of the town against the red granite backdrop, is a stunning view. Also in this area is a Genoese watchtower which is also popular with visitors.
Located close to L'Ile-Rousse is the village of Monticello which is surrounded by olive trees and has charming small streets, ancient buildings, imposing houses, chapels, archaeological sites and walking paths. The village also offers one of the most beautiful viewpoints in Corsica.
