Explore the pristine mountainous terrain that blankets much of Corsica’s interior, absorbing the striking natural beauty with a scenic drive before enjoying a hearty sample of Corsican food. You’ll see the dense shrubbery known as “maquis” blanketing the countryside, and inhale the extraordinarily fragrant evergreen, interspersed with aromatic lavender, myrtle and wild mint. View Bocognano village, perched on a picturesque plateau, and surrounded by leafy chestnut and beech trees. Enter the pine-filled and scarcely populated Vizzavona Forest, sought by nature enthusiasts and backpackers for its wondrous vistas and inspirational hikes. You’ll learn that the forest was the long-standing refuge for bandit brothers who became folk heroes in the late 1880s. One surrendered at age 75 and the other remained at large for ten more years. Savor a hearty spread of smoked ham, sausages and goat cheeses, reflective of a local workman’s mid-day meal, accompanied by a glass of robust red wine. Immerse yourself in this splendid land’s everyday life with ample free time after your delicious repast.
