You are ready for your one week trip to Corsica. But you have not yet made the itinerary with things to do and places to see. You have nothing to worry about: the itinerary you find below, designed especially for those who want to travel and discover the many beauties that this island reserves for all its visitors.
First day: Bastia
Starting point of this one week itinerary in Corsica, on the north coast. City of ancient maritime tradition, the most beautiful places to see in Bastia are Saint Nicolas square, Romieu garden, Citadel, ethnographic museum. While in the surroundings there are the peninsula of Cap Corse, villages such as Pietranera and Erbalunga, Mount Stello.
Second day: Porto Vecchio
On the south coast of Corsica the watchword is only one: sea. The beaches of Porto Vecchio are among the most beautiful that you can find on the entire island. Names like Rondinara, Palombaggia, Stagnolu and Pinarellu evoke heavenly places, immaculate sand and an enchanting sea.
Third day: Bonifacio
Even in Bonifacio there are so many things to see, and one day it will be just enough to admire the Marina, the Citadel, the aquarium, and especially the evocative Bocche di Bonifacio, white cliffs overlooking the sea that separates Corsica from Sardinia.
Fourth day: Ajaccio
Halfway through your journey you will visit the island’s main town on the west coast of Corsica. Things to see in Ajaccio in one day are the Cathedral, the house of Napoleon, the Imperial Chapel, the Citadel, the Napoleonic Museum of the Town Hall of Ajaccio, Place Foch.
Fifth day: Calvi
An ancient Genoese stronghold built on a promontory that plunges into the sea of the north coast of Corsica. The Citadel, the Cathedrale Saint-Jean-Baptiste, the church of Santa Maria Maggiore and the beach of Calvi are the main attractions. To be seen especially in the evening, when it becomes a big jewel lit up in the night.
Sixth day: Ile-Rousse
The name “red island” derives from the red color of the cliffs. The lighthouse of the Island of the Stone, the Oceanographic Museum, the beach of the Ginepara and the village of Monticello are the places to visit.
Seventh day: Bastia
The point of arrival of this itinerary is again Bastia. You can take the opportunity to visit the places that you could not see. Or you can spend a day on one of the beaches in the area.
This itinerary with what to see in Corsica in a week is quite challenging, recommended for those who want to travel a lot during the holiday (and the advice is to board a car on the ferry). Or you can draw up a personal itinerary.Related articles
