Your day by day program
We welcome you at the airport in Bastia and transport you directly to Cape Corsica, avoiding the busy roads. You will then have time to test your new bike, if you rented one through us, or to discover your hotel and its area located close to beautiful stone villages and a small marina famous for its diving. We advise you the restaurant next to the hotel for your dinner as it is one of the best in Cape Corsica specialized in Corsican food.
Night in a 3* hotel.
This morning, you will go North, following the coastline. You will pass next to beautiful genoese towers, cross vineyards and reach the Maccinaggio port. Then a nice climb will await for you to reach the Mattei windmill before enjoying a beautiful descent to Centuri. Centuri is renowned for being the first lobsters' fishing port in France. A great occasion to taste it in one of the many little restaurant in the marina.
About 41 km (D+ : 559m ; D- : 565m ; Min. : 0m ; Max. : 362m)
or 55 km (D+ : 856m ; D- : 860m ; Min. : 1m ; Max. : 361m) depending on the chosen option.
Night in a hotel right in the marina from where you will have a fantastic sunset..
You leave Centuri and follow the road overlooking the sea. Views are amazing on this dramatic coast offering hidden and sheltered creeks ideal for swimming in clear turquoise waters. You will carry on towards Nonza where its Paoline tower and its black pebbles beach is worth a stop. Later, you will cross Patrimonio, known as the birth place to the best wine in Corsica. Its vineyards, its beautiful church will ensure you a good time in the village. Wine tasting is offered in many of the ceilars. Then you will arrive in Saint Florent, your stop for 2 nights.

An amazing ride accross a protected route with stunning landscapes. Following the sea shore in a distance and amid the Corsican scrub, the road ondulates in a luxurious granitic and green environment, surprising knowing that you are supposed to be in a desert! Once at the Vezzu pass, you will get beautiful views on the mountains.
