And if you can’t travel without gorgeous mountain vistas and French and Italian art and cuisine—who can?—we know just the place!
For a warm getaway on the Mediterranean, go on holiday in Corsica, a French island territory with a rich history and cliff-lined coast. Lounge on your pick of pristine beaches, putter around ancient architecture in tiny seaside villages, or kick up your heels in Ajaccio, the capital city. Scoop up some awesome Corsica package deals from Wotif before the tradewinds carry you out to sea! Just kidding. You can catch a plane.
With beaches at almost every turn and nature preserves and landmarks in between, Corsica has something for everyone—from the romantics to the outdoor adventurers. Book one of Wotif’s Ajaccio car hire deals to start cruising the island. Kick off your Corsica holiday browsing paintings at Musée Fesch, explore Corsica’s past and present at Musée a Bandera d'Ajaccio, or haunt the halls of Napoleon Bonaparte’s island home right in the Ajaccio city centre.
For the best views of Corsica’s north coast, climb up to Chapelle de Notre Dame de la Serra in Calvi. It’s a mouthful to say, but the views of the island and the Mediterranean will leave you speechless, just like the rest of the Calvi landscape.
Speaking of landscapes, you’re probably wondering, “Where’s the best beach?” On the central west coast, Tamaricciu Beach in Porto-Vecchio is very popular. For a secluded hideaway, float on over to Mortella Beach, where it’s just you, blue water and stone ruins. For reals. Make sure you leave time for climbing Bonifacio Citadel on the south coast!
Corsica’s cool island vibes are on full display at the outdoor markets. Each village is likely to showcase its own farms and artisans in the square, but the offerings in Ajaccio, L'Ile Rousse and Bastia are worth seeking out and splurging on. Hey, that’s why you’re saving big on Corsica packages, right?
If you’re ever hungry in Corsica, don’t worry; you don’t be for very long. The coast is dotted with restaurants and cafes, as is every major thoroughfare. While the cuisine has many French and Italian influences, the flavours are uniquely Corsican with plenty of fresh fish and seafood and bowls and bowls of delicious soups.
In the bigger cities, like Ajaccio and Bastia, the nightlife includes an extensive bar scene and dance clubs, and you might even be able to catch a fireworks show over the water. Smaller villages take those laid-back vibes and run with them—or walk casually, if you want. The nightlife involves cocktails on the patio and dinner and visiting long into the night.
At Wotif, we know travelling can get pricey, so we’ve got heaps of deals on hotels and airfares so you can book cheap holidays in Corsica that fit your schedule. That way you can relax from the minute you start planning. Since you’ll be super close to Italy, book one of our Rome holiday packages and go on a whirlwind tour!
