    The Balagne tramway (called by the locals : u trinighellu) connects Calvi to Ile Rousse along the scenic coastline. It is a very popular journey so be prepared to be a little bit squeezed during peak hours ;-)

    You could buy your ticket directly on board if there is no railway station and do not forget to hail the train if you want to get in.
    TImetable : up to 5 times a day during high season (one way ticket - EUR 4 for a 48 minutes journey).

    Bastia and Corte, Ajaccio are also reacheable by train.

    Calvi-Sainte-Catherine Airport (CLY)

    Darwin airlines - Fokker 100

    Located at about 10km of Calvi, this small airport has good connection with main Fench cities and continuously increasing charter air routes with European cities during the high season. Local services are limited (one kiosk-souvenir-shop and snack restaurant).

    My flight duration from/to Geneva was only 50 minutes thanks to Darwin Airlines.

    As there is no public transport :-(... you have to use a taxi, rent a car or catch your tour-operator bus to join your final destination.

  • U Trinighellu....The Small Train of Corsica

    by bigsheep Updated Sep 22, 2003

    Not far from the tourist office, just off the harbour, this little train will take you on a beautiful scenic ride to all parts of Corsica. It is an experience not to be missed.
    The line is about 115 years old and is probably one of the best ways to explore the stunning scenery of Corsica.

    Hire a car

    by Johno77 Written Sep 22, 2003

    Whist in Calvi I'd recommend to hire a car, fortunately our travel agents included this in our deal but there are the usual hire car companies over there.
    In a week I only saw 2 taxis and both were en-route, I only saw a few coaches which were for private day trips rather than public transport. There is a train service but I didn't experience it to comment.
    Ferries do go to other parts of Corsica, but there didn't seem to be a frequent service. We enquired to go from Calvi to Ajaccio, which is west of the island, but the ferry only goes on a Thursday and unfortunately it was Friday when we enquired.

    Flying from Manchester

    by Johno77 Written Sep 22, 2003

    It wasn't easy for me to find a holiday to Corsica , I spent hours days and weeks on the internet until I found a company call 'Corsican Places' who specialise in villa holidays to Corsica.
    It takes no longer than 2 hours to get to Calvi and with only one flight a week going to Calvi from Manchester it isn't riddled with Brits' which I must say just added to the appeal of going there.
    It certainly wasn't the cheapest week away - but it was one of the most enjoyable.

    I did notice quite a number of ferry routes to/from South of France & Italy, even Tunisia - so sea lovers may take this option.
