Corsica is the third largest island in the western Mediterranean after Sicily and Sardinia. The island is 183 km long, 83 km wide and its highest peak is 2706 m above sea level. Corsica is a true natural paradise, where the heritage has been protected in an admirable way.

This country full of character, which attaches great importance to its traditions, deserves its epithet "Island of Beauty". Situated 180 km from the French Côte d'Azur and home to Napoleon Bonaparte, the island indeed has a multitude of unique sites to visit.

The protected nature region, very popular with outdoor sports enthusiasts, invites you to explore the charming villages on the mountain slopes, the small untouched bays, the nature reserves with their rich flora and fauna, the relaxing golden beaches with crystal clear water, the colourful sea beds, the mountain lakes and the beautiful hiking trails, including the GR20 long-distance trail that crosses Corsica from north to south.

From the famous seaside resorts to the reliefs of the high mountains, the viewpoints are numerous and varied and, together with the island's climate, form one of Corsica's most important assets.
Corsican cities have also contributed to the island's fame.

It is simply not possible to spend a few days in this beautiful region without visiting Ajaccio, Bastia, Calvi, Corte, Porto-Vecchio or Sartène!

The local gastronomy also contributes to the tourist attractiveness of the island, thanks to cheese, sausages and chestnut specialities. Brocciu cheese, Coppa sausage, Figatelli sausage and polenta and Fiadone cheesecake are real delights and very popular with visitors in search of authentic flavours.
