Patrimonio is a small picturesque town along the north coast of the island of beauty. To get there from Bastia, the main tourist port of north Corsica:

  • From Frecciasca, take D333 road and follow the road signs to Patrimonio.

The journey by car takes about 30 minutes.

 

Not only music:

  • The so-called “finger of Corsica” is Cap Corse, the Corsican peninsula, along the north coast of the island: motorcycle is the best way to discover it.
  • The things to see in Bastia are really several, such as Cathédrale Saint-Jean-Baptiste, Palais des Gouverneurs and Boulevard Paoli.
  • July is the best month to visit some of the most beautiful north Corsica beaches, such as Plage de Lozari and Plage de Bodri.
