- To get there from Bastia, take N193 road towards south. Before you arrive in Omessa, take D84 road and follow the road signs to Col de Vergio. The journey by car takes about two hours.
- To get there from Ajaccio, take the D81 road towards north, follow the road signs to D70 road and, once you arrive in Evisa, take D84 road to Col de Vergio. The journey by car takes less than two hours.
