This tour takes you up into the mountains, to the village of Bastelica. As the coach climbs 800 metres above sea level, there’ll be stunning views over the Gulf Of Ajaccio and the Prunelli Valley, so keep your camera at the ready. You’ll also pass through the Zipitoli forest, which is covered in the island’s famously fragrant maquis shrubbery. Bastelica sits above a gorge and at the foot of the 2,000-metre-tall Renosu Mountain – so high it’s got a snowy peak even during springtime. When you get there, you’ll board a mini train to tour the village’s narrow streets. Look out for the Annunziata Chapel, the village fountain, and the birthplace of the Corsican legend, Sampiero Corso, along the way.
