Corsica’s four airports – Ajaccio, Bastia, Calvi and Figari (north of Bonifacio) – are served by regular year-round flights from the French mainland airports, and in summer from other European countries as well.
To & From Mainland France
Corsica’s five ferry ports (Ajaccio, Bastia, Île Rousse, Porto-Vecchio and Propriano) can be reached from Nice, Marseille and Toulon. Journeys last between 5½ and 15½ hours, depending on the route, size of vessel and time of day. There are numerous crossings in summer, but far fewer in winter. Always book in advance.
Fares vary dramatically – anything from €30 to €100 for a foot passenger – depending on route, degree of comfort, need for overnight accommodation, and size of vehicle (if any). Expect to pay around €500 return for a car and two passengers from Nice to Ajaccio in July and August.
