  • Corse seaside town in the L ' Ile-Rousse (l'Ile-Rousse) is a special place and the Corsican railway line is on the shores of white sand beaches. Is a small town, but not for ghost town in season 2, there was lively. I thought visiting a quiet season, because it's easy to imagine the hustle and bustle of the season was good. If you used the train to Ile-Rousse station, station Calvi 30, Basita station number two is 1 day, 2 hours and a half from Ajaccio station takes 4 hours. Bear feels less like the visit but I did a one-day tour from Bastia, Calvi is. I think it should be moved from Calvi airport is even if you stay at the L ' Ile-Rousse. Station and Ile de la Pietra (Pietra Island) on the left side towards the sea and the town centre is located on the right side. Can walk around freely in the Pietra Island are closed during the low season, but seems to have restaurants. When I visited the several sheets been spread picnic. Because it takes time is to explore both the island and the town centre, train for please your mind with the departure time.

  • Mostly interesting for its pink granite this is a place worth visiting en route to Calvi. There is a nice beach which is not crowded.  more »
  • The walk to the top is not as bad as it looks. Once there, take in the scenic view. The lighthouse itself isn't much. It's about the environs.  more »
