Corsica has a Mediterranean climate with temperatures during the dry and warm summer (June-August) around 27-30 °C and averages lows around or just below 20 °C. Winters from December to February are mostly around 15 °C and nights around 5-7 °C. Most of the precipitation falls from October to March and the average annual amount is about 650 mm. Note that these averages are for coastal Corsica. Temperatures in summer can be much higher inland, though cooler at night. Also, snow in the mountains in winter is possible though not very common.
The Société Nationale Maritime Corse-Mediterranée has a number of daily services between mainland France and the islands of the coast, most notably Corsica. Services run from Marseille, Toulon and Nice to Ajaccio, Propriano, Porto Vecchio and Bastia on Corsica.
Chemins de fer de Corse operates a couple of trainlines on Corsica. The main trainroute travels between Bastia and Ajaccio and a branch line runs from Ponte-Leccia to Calvi.
