Getting to Corsica from Nice

I've been out of circulation for a few days so the blog has not been updated for a while - apologies for this to my millions of readers (yes, you two!)

In the Spring and Autumn, one of the ways of getting to Corsica from the UK and elsewhere in Europe is to get to Nice on a cheap flight and then take the ferry from the port. It used to be the only way of getting there for the not-so-rich traveller, so you'd think that the City of Nice would have worked out by now that some folks like to go from the airport to the port by public transport.

But no. There is a fast bus into the City from the airport, but it doesn't go to the port. And you can't go to the port direct on any bus or train. Sometimes (if there's time) we like to have a leisurely meal on the Promenade des Anglaises before the boat journey, but we don't always have the time. So we usually end up trundling heavy cases vast distances over pavements.

Why doesn't the City lay on a direct connection for Corsophiles like me? They could even charge us a bit of a premium...
