Corsica is one of the most spectacular islands in the Mediterranean Sea. It belongs to France for more than 200 years, and it is located south of the mainland, being closest to the Italian island of Sardinia. Corsica is a quintessential spot full of stunning landscapes, charming towns, and rugged coasts overlooking the foaming Mediterranean. One of the favorite places to visit for people with deep pockets, Corsica is a bucket list number one for everyone who wants to explore something different and enjoy a unique vacation accompanied with wine and Corsican music. Although being French, the people here like to call themselves Corsicans, and in reality, have a different mentality than the mainland French.
Cute seafood restaurants, attractive marina, and unforgettable atmosphere is what Corsica has to offer to all its visitors.
The capital of the island is Ajaccio, the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte. This small town is one of the most picturesque that you can see not only on French territory but in the Mediterranean as well. While on the island, you can also visit the unique Bonifacio town on the south coast, and explore the rugged cliffs, and of course, the citadel.
The third town to visit is surely Calvi, boasting a 1960's charm and throwing you back in the days of the iconic movie stars and luxurious dining, and all that in a rustic, but marvelous setting.
Corsica is one of the best places in the world to learn all about the finest wines and how are they made. A place with unique ecosystems that change every half an hour from thick pine forests to rugged cliffs to azure waters.
Corsica is the #1 island to visit if you ever come to France, only a 50-minute flight from Nice. Corsica is more than just an island, Corsica is a way of living.
