In the land of Napoleon
Corsica: the charm of a mountain island, the land of Napoleon with the flavor of adventure. Its natural splendor is revealed in the Restonica gorges, Monte Stello and the cliffs of Bonifacio. A Genoese, then French, possession, Corsica claims its authentic traditions made up of men and history. Villages on the sea, the natural setting of villages with imposing stone houses. Fantastic roads to discover by motorbike, wide valleys and imposing massifs that throw themselves into a crystalline sea, a splendid island to be discovered …
