Contents

Understand

You will find in Porto-Vecchio a unique mix of both idyllic unspoilt beaches along Corsica's southern coast and breathtaking mountain scenery. The city boasts an historical Old Town bustling with picturesque bars, restaurants, designer boutiques, hotels and a beautiful marina in the majestic Porto-Vecchio gulf, attracting international yachts.

Get in

There are buses from other major Corsican towns, and ferries from other locations. If driving to town in the summer months, it is best to arrive very early, before 10 (or even 9 in August) to ensure parking near the town center. On cloudy or rainy days in August traffic jams may stretch 2 hours long getting into or through town.

Get around

The car is the most practical to get around porto-Vecchio. Because the Porto-Vecchio city is a large space. City centre of Porto Vecchio is best navigated on foot, as the upper town has a one-way traffic system that makes it virtually impossible to navigate my auto.
