No there isn't. Ferries from Italy to Corsica depart mainly from Livorno. Alternatively you could take a ferry from Civitavecchia to Olbia (Sardinia) then another from Santa Teresa di Gallura to Bonificio.

There has been a seasonal service from CIvitavecchia to Bastia ( I believe) that has operated at times in the past. But it has been sporadic.

They went from Civitavecchia to PV in high season for a while, but they don't any more - perhaps it's mainly northern Italians who holiday in Corsica and for them (and the French, who I've seen get on the ferry there) Livorno is better and therefore more profitable. Corsica Ferries have cut back a lot on their schedules in the last couple of years.

Thanks balanina....I have never used an Italy to Corsica service, but I recalled that there was one from Civitaveccia to ???.

Makes sense that it isn't profitable.

I have travelled from Civitavecchia to Sardinia and it was BUSY!
