We didn't have a car and used public transport on our recent trip. 1. Ajaccio : The number 2 and 5 buses are cheap and take you along the coast and into town. 2. Ajaccio to Bastia : We took the train which was wobbly and interesting. Great views across mountainous terrain. Cost was under 30 euro each, one way. It took approximately 5 hours. Take your own snacks and water. 3. Buses from Bastia : We took the buses from Bastia to Erbalunga and back, and from Erbalunga to Macinaggio. Bastia to Erbalunga - cheap - every half hour, except on Saturdays - timetable printed on your first ticket - buy your ticket from the driver - terminus is on the edge of St Nicholas Square - 25 minutes, if the traffic is ok In Erbalunga the bus stops outside the Spar shop, or outside the post office, depending on the direction. Erbalunga to Macinaggio for a boat ride - about 8 euro one way - buses do not run frequently - only one bus back from Macinaggio at 4.30pm week days - winding road along the coast 4. Taxi to the airport from Erbalunga : More expensive than we thought - 100 euro including tip, on a quiet Sunday morning with no traffic, and no dawling - the taxi meter ran up 90 euros very, very quickly!

Calvi, Corsica is one of the most charming towns found in the Mediterranean and a walking tour is a great way to see it. Once you leave the harbor area with yachts filling every slip, its uphill to see most of the sites and slightly uphill for the shopping area along narrow cobblestone streets. Corsica claims to be the birthplace of Columbus and Napoleon was born there and lived in Calvi until he was 10 years old, when he was sent to France to school. The narrow, steep roads in the Citadel area still house some residents, feature a few small parks, and some lovely small churches, but the views from the top are amazing! It's easy to feel liked you've stepped back at least a couple hundred years visiting this town. The harbor area is full of outdoor cafe's and I had a wonderful lunch watching boats coming and going. This is a great place to just people watch as well!

Would highly recommend Corsica as a place to visit as it has most of what most tourists look for. Beautiful scenery, great beaches, lovely villages and towns, friendly people and - in May - great weather and not too crowded. Am impressed that Corsican authorities have rigidly controlled building so you don't get the countryside, mountainsides full of buildings - ie is very unspoilt which is very rare nowadays. Thinking about our two weeks in Corsica I cannot find a single fault which is why I so highly recommended it.

Visited Corsica off a cruise ship. Briefly it is a place where tourists come to buy things at overpriced cost.Very crowded, a lot of cars for narrow streets and walking can be scary because of this. We would not return.
