Arriving in Corsica

Getting Around Corsica

The public transport network in Corsica is not very efficient, as most locals (and some tourists) travel around the island by car. A railway service operated by Chermins de fer de Corse (CFC) helps link most of the main towns on Corsica. Train tickets can be purchased in advance and used when required. Buses are operated by several independent bus companies, and offer connections between most of the major towns on the island. However, they may not run very frequently, so those in a hurry may prefer to hire a taxi. Check the CorsicaBus website for more information about bus routes and timetables. Taxis are available from town centres and larger villages, but it is advisable to book them in advance.

Main Attractions

Corsica is well-known as the island that Napoleon Bonaparte hailed from, so why not take this opportunity to see the house where he was born? Located in the capital Ajaccio, the Musee National de la Maison Bonaparte contains memorabilia and trinkets that belonged to him and his family, including a lock of his hair. Don’t miss a visit to the Musee des Beaux-Arts, which boasts a magnificent collection of Italian masterpieces. Discover the old neighbourhood of Terra Vecchia in Bastia, where the winding streets and crumbling buildings hark back to the island’s past. Go back even further into the past at Filitosa and see the extraordinary carved monoliths and prehistoric village settlement.

Shopping, Dining and Nightlife

The harbourside town of Calvi has a popular covered market with stalls selling a selection of Corsican delicacies such as wild boar charcuterie, products made from chestnuts, as well as plenty of local honey and olive oil. Discover U Minellu, tucked down a little alleyway, whose menu features hearty Corsican fare such as wine boar in red wine. In Bastia, visit Cap Corse Mattei to pick up some of its renowned aperitif, as well as some fruit preserves and liqueurs. The Cantina Doria in Bonifacio also offers diner typically Corsican dishes including ‘Aubergines a la Bonifaciennes’ – stuffed aubergines with breadcrumbs and cheese. Work off those weighty meals on the dancefloor at L’Havanita in Calvi, where the hip young crowd sway along to breezy Latino music.
