Nature and the great outdoors

Get away for a day's hiking in the calanques de piana! In the company of your guide, set off to discover this rare beauty, listed as a unesco world heritage site.

On this hike at the foot of the Capu d'Ortu, explore the typically Corsican pathways leading to the Calanques de Piana. Between granite sculptures and maquis, take in the outstanding views over the Gulf of Porto and the Scandola reserve.

Then, go to Porto and its pebble beach, where you can freely visit the seaside, its coral artisans, the Genoese tower or the aquarium.

After sampling some regional products during a picnic in the heart of nature, you'll have half a day to yourself. Then, at your leisure, explore the sea caves of Capu Rosso (supplement required), or visit the village of Porto by foot.

Finish your day with a relaxing swim on the beaches of Ajaccio and its southern bank.
