Luxury Tours Corsica, France

Luxury Tour Corsica, France

Corsica is arguably the most beautiful island in the Mediterranean Sea with its intense blue waters, alpine deep greens, high mountain range, and dramatic rock formations. It boasts some of the best beaches in Europe with various beautiful bays, and charming harbor towns at the edge of dropping cliffs. Its alpine forest vegetation carpets the soaring Alta Rocca Mountain Range, which weaves through the interior of the island. Being the most mountainous island in the Mediterranean, Luxury travel in Corsica offers exciting outdoor adventures, beautiful drives through breathtaking scenery, dramatic shifts in the environment and diverse vegetation. Its UNESCO World Heritage Scandola Nature Reserve is renowned for its red cliffs soaring above the blue azure. Having been conquered continuously by many civilizations since pre-historic times, Corsica also offers a strong historical element, with pre-historic ruins dotting the region along with other heritage sites of later Western eras. Greek, Roman, as well as Ottoman empires have reached its shores over the centuries, marking its culture and giving Corsica its unique identity. Throughout its long history, Corsica has developed a strong agricultural lifestyle as well as many of its own traditions which have manifested their exceptionalism in diverse ways including olive oil making, authentic bladesmithing, gastronomy, and sheepherding, to name a few.
