If you are a French history lover, you must come to Corsica! This island located on the Mediterranean might be a part of France, but it possesses a proud identity and presence on its own. Everyone who is aware of French history would love to discover the birthplace of Napoléon Bonaparte. Indeed, Bonaparte was born in Ajaccio – Corsica’s capital city in 1769. Furthermore, statues and street names can be found everywhere and provide a constant reminder of his legacy. The Bonaparte House, Napoléon’s family house, even became a national museum. Discover a unique city – Bonifacio, a city divided in two parts and located on the South part of the island. Vieille Ville is on the harbourside where most people live while Haute Ville is set within a cliff-top citadel from the 9th century. By walking through its narrow streets, you will be amazed by its shady squares and landscapes. In Corsica, you can enjoy all types of activities such as kayaking, surfing, diving, water skiing, walking, cycling, horse riding and so many more, while taking in the stunning views around you. It also has its fair share of coastal resorts; some have pebble beaches while the others have fine sand. You cannot leave Corsica without visiting its Regional National Park as well as Filitosa. The Scandola Nature Reserve has been designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO while Filitosa is a prehistoric site where you can admire 16 large standing menhirs carved with human faces. Corsica is definitely a good idea for history and nature lovers. If you are one, do not hesitate and book your flight right now for an unbelievable experience.
