very beautiful side of island, must see definitely all, only you can see it almost always in the car, or you can take walking tour

The drive is not nearly as tight as the reviews seem to indicate. It is, however, extremely busy, even during June. Traffic is slow moving, so not dangerous at all. There are oportunities to park at various spots along the pretty, winding road. It does...More

As others have written, this is a most spectacular experience of rock formations. When in Corsica, and about 90 minutes from Ajaccio, this is an experience that cannot be captured in words and photographs don’t do justice enough. Best to walk the windy narrow road...More

So worth the drive, though watch out for the tourist buses on the bends. In late September, it was not very busy and you can park along the way to take photos.

Careful driving a must. Winding and narrow road. Spectacular views. Mostly unhabited 20kms from Porto in both directions. Worth doing it North to South and back. The driver has very few opportunities to look around while driving. Too few stop possibilities along this high corniche.

This mountainous region of Corsica is spectacular. We drove up from Ajaccio on the D81 road, and it took around 1 hour 30 minutes to Piana, where we stopped at a cafe for some refreshments. The Calanques (or Les Calanche) starts just after the town...More

Words cannot describe how breathtaking the Calanques are. We have been fortunate to be staying right in the middle of them for a week, but each time we look out from the terrace we are stunned by the beauty. Deservedly a UNESCO world heritage site

You just have to go. The road is fine, just drive slow, as everyone does. The scenery is so spectacular that people find a place to deposit their car (I wouldn’t call it parking) and then walk along the road to take photos adding to...More
