The village of the last Corsican bandit. Go to Sagone and then inland to the countryside, through Vico and stop by the “Casa di u mele,” home of Corsican honey. Then continue to Muna, a ghost town that’s fiercely preserved from devastation.
Lac de Creno
A cool and clear mountain lake, with lovely waterlilies.
Calanques de Piana
Slalom through the jagged rock formations of the Calanques de Piana, high cliffs that plunge into the sea, a colorful rainbow of hues. Then get on a boat at Porto and cruise through the wonders of the Scandola nature reserve.
Have lunch at Girolata, only accessible via boat or foot.
Cargese was founded by Greeks fleeing Turkish occupation. Taste one of the most delicious fish soups on the island while locals play relentless battles of boules on the plaza between the Latin and orthodox churches.
