Porto-Vecchio is a city on the French island of Corsica.

Get in

There are busses 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. Porto Vecchio is best navigated on foot, as the town has a one-way traffic system that makes it virtually impossible to navigate my auto.




Porto-Vecchio has several souvenir shops, as well as some stores selling specialty Corsican food, such as wild boar sausage and local cheeses. There are several hyper-markets (bigger than super markets) just north of town along the main road.


The town has dozens of excellent restaurants, some with beautiful views over the harbour, and a main square where you can sip your latte while people watching.




Villas and apartments
