Macs Adventure, Walk of the Week

Walk of the Week: Corsica: Island of Beauty

18 Aug , 2015  

Even though Corsica has been part of France for over two hundred years, it has its own unique qualities, cuisine, language, culture and history. This island offers a wealth of wonderful experiences which we think are best undertaken by foot.


In a Nutshell

Distance: 46km  (28 miles)

Where is it?

Despite its French heritage, Corsica is in fact located off the west coast of Italy, in the Mediterranean Sea. This adventure takes place on the northern half of the island, beginning in the historic capital of Corte and finishing up in the historic citadel of Calvi.
