best way to get from MEM to AJA in May 2012

We have been wanting to go to Corse for a long time. There does not seem to be a practical itinerary from Memphis, TN. Should we fly to Nice and then take the over-night ferry? Are there flight alternatives? We do not want to change airports in Paris or experience 10+ hour layovers. Thank you!

Air Corsica flies from Nice to AJA.

Check www.whichbudget.com - there are lots of flights from France to Corsica.

Thank you! We will look at that. Unfortunately Air Corsica only shows flights six months out, but I can see flight frequency, etc. We were hoping for a good itinerary from Memphis to Corsica with reasonable layovers and were wondering how others make their way there. Thank you again.

Been to Corsica several times. Ferries each time, from Livorno, Nice and Toulon on Corsica Ferries. Also from Civitavecchia but I think that line has been cancelled. Moby also has ferries from Livorno and Toulon, I believe. For the Livorno ferry, I flew into Pisa, took the train to Livorno, had an overnight cabin on the ferry which departed very early the next morning cabin less expensive than a hotel room and I didn't have to get up early and make my way to the port for departure. The Toulon crossing is overnight. Nice is about 5 hours and Livorno is about 4 hours.
