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.
