WOOCS 2.1.6

A part of France since 1769, Corsica is the fourth largest island in the Mediterranean.  Its location, sheltered harbours and natural resources made it both strategically and commercially attractive. Greeks, Carthaginians and Etruscans all invaded, and it was once a province of the Roman Empire.  Similarly, the Arabs, Pisans, Genoese and French all left their imprint on Corsica’s history and culture.  Today the island is perhaps best known as the birthplace of Napoleon, but it has much more to offer the discerning traveller.

Visit Corsica

Bathed in the warm Mediterranean climate, Corsica is a haven for lovers of natural beauty.  Its spectacular scenery and picturesque villages ensure its popularity on Odyssey’s small group tours of the western Mediterranean islands. Our tour begins in the fortified town of Bonifacio, and then continues on to Ajaccio, Filitosa, and the stunning UNESCO natural heritage listed Golfe de Porto.  We also take in Calvi, Corte, Bastia, Cap Corse, St Florent and more.

Island of Sicily

For centuries Malta, Sicily, Sardinia and Corsica held the key to the Mediterranean. Malta secured the Mediterranean for Britain and made it the world’s major maritime power. Possession of Sicily brought similar benefits to Rome, as did Corsica for France. However today the inhabitants retain their way of life for us to explore. Our program compares and contrasts the geography, history, culture and peoples of these 4 islands.
