Corsica is home to Europe’s biggest tortoise protection centre, the aptly named ‘A Cupulatta’ – which is Corsican for tortoise. It was founded back in 1993 to re-home neglected tortoises and protect dwindling species from extinction. And today there are more than three thousand tortoises in this massive park. They’ve got leopard-spotted ones. Giant African varieties. And everything in-between. Not to mention turtles and terrapins, too. You’ll see baby turtles that are just a few centimetres long and Grandfathers that measure over a metre across. And if there’s time, you’ll squeeze in a quick city tour of Ajaccio before you head back to the ship.
Some of this tour is on rough or uneven ground - we recommend you wear flat and comfortable footwear. This tour is only available during July and August.
- SUITABILITY Moderate physical activity. • Great choice for families.
