It is sometimes hard to choose between the many sites to visit on the Isle of Beauty. So what are the most essential places to see?
We are going to try to help you. A whole team of travellers - Corsica-lovers and members of the Evaneos community - will share their advice and opinions with you on what to do in Corsica. You will therefore have everything you need to prepare your trip without any hassle.
Starting off in the Haute-Corse region, the area's administrative centre Bastia is well worth a visit, perched on a mountainside. From there, head towards Cap Corse. Rugged landscapes, Mediterranean scrubland with myrtle and strawberry trees, vineyards and white sandy beaches will mark out your route. The Désert des Agriates is worth visiting, so explore a bit and then head back to Saint Florent. Continuing towards the south, visit the citadel at Calvi and have a drink by the harbour - it is a magnificent town and the sea there is excellent. From there you can take the road towards La Balagne, a mountainous and wooded inland area. Perched on the mountains, villages such as Sant'Antonio, ranked as the most beautiful in France, and plenty of others will show you an authentic side to Corsica - the perfect place to sample culinary specialities in a relaxing environment.
Head towards the Corse-du-Sud region in the south to continue your travels, starting at Ajaccio. Very different to Bastia, this is the town where Napoleon was born. From there, you can visit the magnificent Sanguinaire Islands, a reserve with protected flora and fauna. At the southernmost point, Bonifacio is not to be missed - a town like no other! Make the most of passing through here to visit the Lavezzi Islands - you won't regret your visit! If you love a bit of relaxation, continue towards Porto Vecchio with its magnificent beaches. For those who are a bit more sporty, the Alta Rocca or the GR20 offer walks in a dreamy setting.
