Have not done Med Isles but did Med Essence which shares some ports so hope helps.Corsica-portright in town so we did our own thing taking a walk around the pretty squares, visiting the open market which was great and then strolling around the headland to spendtheafternoon on the almost deserted lovely beach. Rome- the port is 90 mins drive from Rome and really ugly. Did the Island trip with lunch. Manage to see lots including pantheon, vatican, Trevi fountain etc. Expensive for 4 of us but good value. Mahon- beautiful sailing into the amazing harbour at dawn. Well worth the early start to get up onto bridge to watch.The island is really small and easy to get around. The Tourist Office is right next to where yuo dock and useful for maps, advice etc. We wanted a beach day so took a Taxi to beautiful Cala Galdana about 30 mins from Mahon and 40 euro each way. Hope this helps.

Thanks a lot McCormack for your reply, was helpful.Could you confirm Corsica was Ajjacio? as this is where we berth. Is it worth staying in Ajjacio for the day or go on a trip thanks agai.
