Corsica: Green Vacation Between Mountains and Sea

Corsica is a smaller part of the island of France than both Sardinia and Sicily. But it is so close to those other continent’s islands that it gives the impression of being a miniature continent itself.

Two lines of mountain-like hills divide the island into two sections. Bastia is the highest part, and Ajaccio is the lower part. I’m not sure why they didn’t call it the “Corsican island”. It doesn’t smell like Corsica at all!

How does the color change? If you want to see the “birth” of nature, you can visit the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. June is a nice time to visit, but if you want to go for the best experiences you need to go during September and October.

During the autumn season is ideal because the temperature is still warm enough for you to take short, easy walks and do a few laps around. How can you get to the island? There are ferries that go “back and forth” to the main island on a regular basis.

The marinas in Corsica are, just to name a few, Bastia, Calvi, and Ajaccio. You can get there by the airport, too. Visit the Galapagos Islands, this is where the wildlife is so magnificent and so incredibly diverse! This is your chance to see it all:
