First time in Corsica- suggestions please!!!

Recommended Posts

Hi all- we are taking our first mediterranean cruise in August on Celebrity reflection. I'm new to cruise critic and so enjoy reading all your great suggestions! Was hoping someone might have a suggestion for a "not to be missed" excursion or activity while in Corsica. We are active and really don't want to do an all day at the beach.

Thanks a million!;)

Is your port of call Ajaccio? We did a trip on the little land train around the town and out along the coast road for quite a way and felt it was worthwhile. I believe we also went to Napoleon’s birthplace. The ship docked close to town, within walking distance.

 

Perhaps you could post the name of the port and more people might help.

The ship docks close to town and we just walked around, very enjoyable. Our ship provided bike tours and canyoneering for the more active set. Check what your ship offers to see what's available and can be managed timewise.

Hi! could you please share your first time in Corsica experience? We are coming there on April this year, not sure what to do. Seems like the weather won't be warm enough so all we have to do is shopping and eating:classic_laugh:

Hi sure we rented electric bikes which were fun. Don’t need to go thru cruise ship- easily found online- just google and make a reservation ahead of time. We rode them on the outskirts of town where there’s a really nice path that takes you along the Mediterranean Sea to your left. Stopped at a little bakery on the way. We were docked on the weekend and there was a fabulous flea market in the center of town- after our bike trip- with amazing finds!!! Lots of little French lunch spots also throughout the town where you’ll find some yummy lunch treats. It’s a very walkable area. Have so much fun!

What a great experience! Thanks for sharing! I adore flea markets, guess my hubby has a different opinion))) What a pity we will be there on Monday! But we'll try to use your tips while organizing our day!
