Your day by day program

1
Arrival in Bastia

Your tour starts in Bastia at your hotel in the afternoon. This gives you time to discover the capital of Upper Corsica. The old port is superb as well as the freely accessible citadel and the old town which offers an exceptional panorama on the sea and the surroundings. For the free evening meal, we recommend the old port and its special atmosphere.

The tour of Cap Corse

In the morning, after the appointment, you get on your bike and follow the D80 (which goes around Cape Town), towards Macinaggio. You ride along the coast about 35 km before cutting from east to west by the Serra pass (365 m). On the other side of the island the road again follows the coast and its beautiful cliffs. Several Genoese and paolines towers strew the course, and the marines with their small fishing ports are magnificent. The evening stage is done in Saint-Florent, where you can walk on the port or visit the citadel ...
