This tour takes you to what is known as ‘the most Corsican of the Corsican towns’, which is none other than Sartene! Set high on the ridge, Sartene is a Medieval fortified town of narrow, cobbled streets and grey granite houses, perched magnificently in the mountains. Located near the coast, Sartene was therefore vulnerable to invaders and regularly attacked by pirates in the Middle Ages. Here your guide will show you around the main sights, such as: Piazza Porta and the Ste. Anne district and tell you about the town’s history and vendettas. After some free time for shopping you continue your journey passing by the famous Spina Cavallu Bridge. This elegant rare Pisan stone arch dates back to the 13th century and is beautifully situated with a backdrop of rippling vineyards and olive trees. Just so you know... There is approximatley 1 hours walking over uneven and steep ground.
A visit to Corsica’s most southern tip is on the cards on this tour. On the drive over, you’ll stop at Roccapina, where you can see the lion-shaped granite rock that looks over the Genoese tower – it’s an opportunity for some great photos. Once you arrive in Bonifacio, the mini train will take you past the ruins of three mills, and the Church of St Dominique. You’ll also be treated to panoramic views over the neighbouring island of Sardinia. You’ll continue on foot to the citadel – your guide will tell you all about the chapel of St John the Baptist, and the 14th-century Church of Saint Marie Majuere. The walking tour finishes up in the marketplace. From there, you can brave the 100 steps down to the marina. Or, hop back on the mini train and it will get you there. Next, you’ll be boarding a boat for a tour of the Bonifacio caves. From the sea, you’ll have views over the town, perched on top of 230-feet-high limestone cliffs. You’ll see Sdragonatto cave, meaning the little dragon – it’s shaped like Corsica. The tour wraps up with some free time – you can sit in a café, or do some shopping.
Explore the region of Propriano and its wonderful Gulf of Valinco from the comfort of your coach on this scenic tour that is especially designed for the less mobile. As you drive along the coast to the interior of the island, you will see traditional villages consisting of high granite houses set in superb landscapes while listening to your guide giving you interesting facts about the culture and local way of life. From Propriano to Petreto Bicchisano, the tour continues along the Taravo River, which is bordered by typical Corsican vegetation. You will then proceed to Casalabriva and on to the Col de la Celaccia from where you will get a glimpse of the stunning Gulf of Valinco before reaching Olmeto with its clusters of old houses built into the hillside, surrounded by a green expanse of woodland.
