  • Prices of food on Corsica

    Bastia Shopping

    I am a low budget tourist from Eastern Europe, where prices are generally lower compared to the West. I am trying to live in a humble way while travelling. Corsica was my huge disappointment, although I knew that it is expensive, but I wasn’t prepared for so poor quality services and small range of goods in shops. Of course, you can live cheaply on...

  • Walking the streets of Ajaccio.

    Ajaccio Things to Do

    Ajaccio is not that big, or at least the part that most tourists will see, so is easily walkable. Completely flat along the harbour, where you can often see the cruiseships that come from Toulon, Nice or Sardinia, there are some gentle slopes in the old town.The cruiseship " Adventurer of the seas" on the 4th photo, is the largest in the world,...

    Ajaccio Things to Do

    Arriving early in the morning, the first real glimpse of Ajaccio and Corsica is the lovely light that plays along the harbour and citadel walls. Of course best known as being the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte, Ajaccio does have other things to merit a visit. The main shopping thoroughfare is the rue du Cardinal Fesch and also has the museum...

    Bonifacio Things to Do

    Going out to the Lavezzi islands is really one of the must-do's in Bonifacio. Not only for the islands themselves but also for the superb views of Bonifacio and its limestone cliffs from the sea. There are a few companies at the harbour and they are all roughly the same price, but there are a couple that offer free parking for the day if you travel...

  • The Lavezzi islands.

    Bonifacio Things to Do

    There is really only one island where you can land as the others are mainly just a pile of rocks sticking out of the sea. As it is the only one with nice beaches it is the only one worth going to. If you have your own boat easy to get up close to the beaches otherwise it entails a 10 minute walk. There are a couple of marine cemeteries here, filled...

  • Short visit to Aleria.

    Corte Things to Do

    We made a quick decision to go to Aleria when rain made us put off a hike we had planned for that day. Unfortunately we got there at 12h05 meaning that the museum was shut including the archaeological digs along with it. Phoecians and Etruscans both lived in the area plus the old Roman town and would have been good to have seen the objects and...

  • Hike the Restonica.

    Corte Things to Do

    This is a great hike to do, but choose the early morning to do it if possible. A great drive up the valley for 15 kms from Corte, bit hairy at times and you'll find a steward on the road for your 5 euro parking fee. Another km up and you'll find the parking lot. The trail starts just across from here next to the little drinks place there. You'll...
