Boat and Ferry Travel

Regular car ferries run from Marseille, Nice, and Toulon to Ajaccio, Bastia, and Propriano. These crossings take from 5 to 10 hours, with sleeping cabins available. The high-speed ferry from Nice to Bastia takes about three hours. Package deals, which include making the crossing with a car, an onboard cabin, and a hotel in Corsica, are available from SNCM, the Société Nationale Maritime Corse-Méditérranée. Connections from the Italian mainland are run by Corsica Ferries. Moby Lines also runs Italian mainland connections. Sardinia can be reached by ferry from Bastia or Bonifacio on Navarma Lines. Saremar also runs ferries to Sardinia. La Méridionale runs a service from Marseille to Ajaccio, Bastia and Propriano in Corsica and Porto Torres in Sardinia.
