Is this a good itinerary for one week in Corsica?  (5 Answers)

Hi, we are 2 people travelling to Corsica from June 7-14, 2017. We will arrive in Bonifacio from Sardinia and will return to Sardinia. We will have a rental car the whole time. So would this path work well or is it too rushed?
June 7 Overnight in Propriana
June 8 Overnight in Ajaccio
June 9 Overnight in Porto
June 10 Overnight in Corte
June 11 Overnight in Calvi
June 12 Overnight in Bastia
June 13 Overnight in Bonifacio

Would appreciate any recommendations on good B&B in any of these places.

Rental-car Corsica and hand in in Sardinia  (8 Answers)


We are planning 3 weeks for Corsica and Sardinia. Idea is to fly into Corsica and out of Sardinia (or vice versa). But can anyone please advice on the most logical thing to do with the rental car? Can we collect in Corsica and hand in in Sardinia, to save the travel back time and ferry costs?

For short: travel-time is June '16, family of 4 (2 kids of 2 and 4 yrs), have own car-seats with us.

Thanks guys!

Day trips from Ajaccio  (2 Answers)

I will be in Ajaccio on 10, 11 and 12 June. I had planned to do day trips with Authentic Tours after reading rave reviews, but they are already booked out and my only hope is a cancellation. Most disappointing. Can anyone suggest another reliable company to take me on day trips? Is it possible to hire a private (safe) driver? I definitely want to go to Bonifacio, and was also considering Corte, and Piana and Scandola, but I'm open to suggestion. I don't want to drive myself. If I leave things until my arrival and just go to the tourist bureau, I'm worried I might miss out altogether. I'm happy to do train and boat trips too, as long as they are day trips from Ajaccio. Looking forward to hearing your suggestions.

Access and location in Corsica  (3 Answers)

Planning a trip for two to Corsica, we would like to see the beaches and towns, and the mountains, and are willing to spend a week or so in one location before travelling to another for a few days. Neither of us can drive and we haven't been able to find any obvious bus/train routes that might take us inland. Is there anywhere at all where we can find the best of both worlds, or is there any public transport that might get us from one to the other?
We had been looking at Aiguilles de Bavella and Bonifacio, just to give you an idea of the sort of thing we were after but are more than flexible on similar locations. Cheers for all your help.

Itinerary Advice  (12 Answers)

I'd love to get your input on our itinerary. Are we missing anything we should see and do? And/or are the distances we're travelling too far to make this a nice vacation?

We are a family of 3 traveling to Corsica and Italy over the dates of August 22nd - September 1st. We fly into Nice and will take the ferry to Ajaccio. We spend 2 nights at the Radission Blu hotel and will not rent a car for these two days instead opt to visit on foot. Is this doable in this area or do we need a car to get around? If we don't need a car we planned to rent on the day we depart Ajaccio and drive through Sartene stop for lunch do some hiking along the way and take our time. We'll stop oi Bonifaccio and then look for a hotel in the Porto Vechio/Bonifaccio area. We'll spend 2 nights in this area with our rental car so we can driver to beaches, hikes and the like. We plan to take a ferry from Porto Vechio to Naples (if there is one) and then spend 3 days along the Amalfi coast. We then take the train up to Rome where we'll spend the night of September 1st in a hotel and depart for home on an early morning flight September 2nd.

Any comments or suggestions are welcomed.

GR20  (2 Answers)

Id like to walk the famous gr20 track but I probably wont be able to spend 15 days for walking so I have to decide which part of it to take, northen or southen. I was thinking of walking the northen part from Calenzana to Vizzavona.
1. Has anyone taken it? How was it? Difficoulty in a scale from 1 to 10 where 1 is a walk on a beach and 10 is the hardest track one can imagine?
2. How many refuges were there? Can you camp on the track?
3. What about food? Is it best to take lyophilisated food or can you buy some food in small villages on the track
4. Im planning to go there in september, is it a good time?
5. How to get there the cheapest way? Plane/ferry/car/train? (excluding hitchhiking)
Thanks for your help! :)

Corsica in November  (3 Answers)

I've just booked to camp in a campervan in Corsica (down the road from Aleria in what is a naturist campsite during the warmer months of the year, but is a regular campsite with the added bonus of an onsite spa this time of the year!).

My questions are many, but mainly:

1. I want to swim. I keep hearing the water will be too cold, but will it really be cold, cold or just med cold? (I swim in the English Channel in December usually, as a barometer)
2. Has anyone else stayed at this campsite: reviews?
3. What is there to do in Corsica as a single female in November - is it safe to hike alone, etc?
4. Is it expensive to buy food (from supermarkets) in Corsica? I only ask this as I'm coming from mainland France and so have an opportunity to stock up before I set sail if necessary.

Any other tips or advice would be greatfully appreciated!
