A nature-filled Corsican hotspot

A town with a hilltop citadel in the heart of Corsica, ringed by rugged peaks, Corte makes for a dramatic base from which you can explore this picturesque island. Corte holidays are a good choice for nature lovers who want to enjoy the great outdoors, with a side of buzz, too, as the city has both a spectacular setting and lively university. Days can be spent exploring magical gorges, granite cliffs, pine forests and meandering valleys nearby.

And after you’ve had your fill of adventure, there are many cafés and bars to unwind in afterwards. As it’s in the centre of the island, Corte is ideally located for day trips to the port city of Bastia or Napoleon’s birth city Ajaccio, while hikers can easily drive to Monte Cinto, the island’s highest mountain. The combination of gorgeous vistas, fine bistros and wine bars mean holidays to Corte are both a visual and a gastronomic feast.
