A mountainous and wild land located about 200km from metropolitan France, Corsica promises fabulous moments to all those who plan to spend a few days there. There are plenty of activities to do once you are there.
Like many island jewels of the Mediterranean, Corsica remains a destination that can be as pleasing to adventurers as to curious minds, not to mention tourists in search of relaxation. Thanks to its favourable geographical situation and a busy past, this island of 8,680 km² presents all the tourist attractions so that every visitor can spend an unforgettable stay, whatever their profile.
For example, the great history enthusiasts unpacking their suitcases on the island of Beauty will be able to admire the treasures of the past such as the Citadel of Bastia, the prehistoric shelter of Araguina-Sennola de Belvédère-Campomoro, the archaeological site of Piantarella, The Funtanaccia Dolmen, etc.
Since its first settlement dating from the Mesolithic period, Corsica has been the subject of multiple influences that have forged its authenticity and its culture. Therefore, the best way to perceive your soul is to take the time to visit its villages, to go hiking in the heart of its beautiful natural sights and to take an interest in its traditions.
Typical agglomerations such as the medieval city of Sartène, the village of Piana and its majestic calanques, Pigna and its craftsmen of all kinds, or the sublime seaside resort of Saint-Florent are among the charismatic places of interest to visit during a stay in Corsica.
The island is also exciting to discover through its sunny gastronomy, based on a wide range of local products. As one of its important components, guests will have the opportunity to enjoy figatellu, prisuttu, coppa, lonzu and sanguinelli. They will also have the chance to enjoy delicious specialties such as brocciu cheese, azziminu, grilled trout fried on a wood fire, or the famous dumplings sturza preti.
The island which gave birth to Napoleon Bonaparte is therefore a land of enduring cultural, historical and natural heritage. But it should not be forgotten that it is also a leisurely destination. The cities of Calvi and Porto-Vecchio are renowned for their concerts and nightlife. While the coastlines of Corsica, especially those close to the seaside resorts, remain great spots dedicated to water sports and recreation.
