Corsica (France)

Corsica is a small island in the Mediterranean between Italy and France. Part of France for only the last 250 years, it has a rugged, mountainous interior and a beautiful Mediterranean coastline. The villages are ancient and the people proudly independent.

Roads and Riding

Roads in Corsica are very twisty in the mountainous interior and curve-hugging at the coast. They are generally in very good condition. Many Europeans who have ridden there will tell you that Corsica has some of the best touring roads in all of Europe.

Climate and Environment, When to Go

Corsica has its own distinct geography. The mountains of Corsica look different from the mountains on the European mainland. The climate is Mediterranean, so summers can be hot. The best time to visit Corsica is in the spring or early autumn. The summer months can find Corsica crowded with European vacationers.

Sights, People, Food and Drink

Inhabitants of Corsica have a distinctive language, culture, way of life and a proud, independent streak. Corsica is the birthplace of Napoleon. Towns crowned by crumbling citadels look out to oceans where naval battles once took place. In 1794, the legendary Captain Horatio Alger was wounded helping the Corsican nationalists battle the Genoese. Seafood along the coast is fresh-caught daily, and cooked with fresh Mediterranean ingredients, like olive oil and garlic. French favorites, like baguettes, croissants and all sorts of cheeses can also be found here.
