Corsica is probably the most beautiful island in the Mediterranean and France. It is therefore no wonder that the French themselves call Corsica the "Isle de la Beauté" - the island of beauty. Here are fantastic landscapes, kilometers high mountains, magnificent beaches and a beautiful temperate climate with mild temperatures and cooling breezes. In the parks of the colorful cities, the locals play petanque and the world situation is discussed on harbor promenades and sidewalk cafes, usually followed by an espresso or a glass of pastis. And if you feel like adventure, Corsica offers a world of experiences, where the island's most famous son, Napoleon, plays a major role.
In Corsica, you will not miss the capital, Calvi, which is the largest city on the Corsican northwest coast in the La Balagne region. Here you will find a rich selection of restaurants, cafes and specialty shops, and you can spend hours exploring the crooked streets. The town's landmark is the impressive 12th-century citadel, and the beach at Calvi is one of the island's absolute best.
