Highs & Lows

Fresh goat cheese wherever you turn!

Corsicans are rumored not to serve the same quality food to visitors as to islanders. And it shows!

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    I would have gone earlier in the year for better weather.

  • How was the food?

    Honestly, we never found very good food in Corsica. We've heard from French friends that visitors, even from mainland France, are served lower-quality food than locals. One time, I ordered pasta carbonara that was so bad I took it home and boiled off the sauce to salvage the pasta.

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    Hike as much as you can!

  • Transportation Tips?

    Car travel is definitely the easiest way to get around Corsica. It would have been tough to get anywhere without one. Be careful on the country roads, though. They're very narrow and people drive very fast!
