Enjoy the real soul of Corsica in a day with your local guide


Within a day, let yourself hook across some of the most diversified and beautiful landscapes of this unique region.
Famous maquis, "lariccio" forests, charming pittoresques villages, talented artisans, powerful rugged mountains, astonishing belvederes. . . all those contrasted sceneries struggle to satisfy your look and your curiousity.
Lots of comments and informations (which only 10% will remain in minds!) about ancient and contemporary History, life before Tourism and perspective for the future.
We shall also cross several centuries of occupations by different mediterranean powers (from antic to modern times) which left more or less visible traces in landscape and in mentalities.
