    h Duração estimada

Take in some of the most extraordinary sights on Corsica, including wonders such as the Piana nature reserve.


After departing from the pier, you will settle in for a scenic 75-minute drive north to Cargese, which the Greeks founded in 1676 after escaping a Turkish invasion. During free time here, you might shop, admire the churches in the center of town, or simply admire the glorious sea views.


Then, it’s on to the Calanche of Piana, a nature reserve so environmentally significant that it has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The sights are stunning in every direction. Expect to see brightly colored rock outcroppings, oddly shaped granite pinnacles and pillars rising out of the sea. Some of the rocks look like animals or people, including one known as the Bride and Groom.


Lunch in the seaside village of Porto follows, after which you will enjoy free time for shopping or to stroll about the delightful marina. The surrounding red cliffs plunging into the turquoise sea is quite a sight.


After your free time, you will rejoin your coach and begin the leisurely drive back to Ajaccio, passing through villages such as Evisa and Vico, the former capital of this region.
