Treasures of the Corsican Hills - Calvi - 2019 ( 6 Hours )
Calvi, France | 29 Oct 2019

  • Meals: Lunch
  • Recommended Ages: All Ages
  • Activity Level: Moderate
  • Experience(s): Food & Wine • Culture, History & Arts • Sightseeing

We’ll begin our day with a scenic drive from port in Calvi to the fertile Balagne region. Nicknamed “Corsica’s garden” Balagne’s hills are lined with grapevines and fruit trees, and dotted with picturesque villages. Our first stop will be in the lovely village of Lumio, overlooking the Gulf of Calvi and famed for the unique golden light that bathes the stone houses at sunset. We’ll explore the town on foot, beginning at its center at the baroque church and bell tower. We’ll next transfer to Île Rousse, named for the rocky islets of red porphyry stone on its northwest. Flanked with white sand beaches, this is a beautiful and lively resort town. We’ll enjoy a traditional Corsican lunch at a local restaurant before our drive back. On the way, we’ll make a final stop in the dramatic hilltop village of Sant’Antonino. This pedestrian-only town is a joy to discover, with its 11th-century church and castle ruins. At an elevation of more than 1,600 feet, this is one of the highest towns in Balagne. Take in the amazing views and explore the alleyways, covered passageways, and stone houses that seem to blend into the native rock.

Suggested Attire/Walking Notes: Casual attire and comfortable walking shoes.
