Other Need-to-Know Information about Corsica
Corsica lies in the Mediterranean Sea, between France and Italy. While technically part of France, it is designated a “collectivité territoriale,” which grants it a greater degree of autonomy. The island has been inhabited since the mesolithic era, and through history it has been occupied by the Greeks, Romans, Lombards, Republics of Pisa and Genoa, and others. All of these civilizations have left their mark on the land and you will see it in the culture as soon as you arrive!
There are four airports on the island, in the cities of Ajaccio, Bastia, Calvi, and Figari. However, flights to Corsica from outside mainland France are not very frequent, or only available seasonally. Furthermore, it can be difficult to find transportation from the airport into the city once you land. The alternative is to take the ferry from Nice, Marseille, Toulon, or from the Italian ports of Genoa, Livorno, Sovona, Naples, or Sardinia. Once on the island, motorbike tours Corsica make for an excellent way to get around and see the sights. You will be able to take in the gorgeous coastline, rugged mountains, quaint villages, and all the rest of Corsica’s natural beauty from the back of your motorbike.
Most of the island offers a pleasant Mediterranean climate, but at higher elevations (Corsica has about 120 peaks higher than 2,000 meters) the weather can be much cooler, even experiencing harsh winters. The summer months of June through August tend to be the most popular for tourism.
