Despite being relatively small (184km from North to South) Corsica has for a long time harboured a culture that looks towards the mountains rather than towards the sea.

It is just as easy to see that Corsican culture is built upon the pride of a people that has successfully overcome the harshness of life in the mountains rather than upon a maritime or commercial way of life. Therefore, to experience the real Corsica, you must venture into the hills and cross the winding roads which link together villages that are perched upon the mountainside.

Travel well informed! Given that a car is essential to get around the island, you can choose between loading yours onto the ferry which departs from Nice or Toulon or travelling by plane and hiring one from one of the airports on the island. You can choose to follow in the footsteps of Napoleon, the most illustrious Corsican citizen in all of history, or to simply spend your time sampling meats, cheeses and other local specialities. Don’t forget to get a taste of Corsican culture, from village celebrations to traditional songs. A wealth of ideas await in the Corsican Practical Guide!
