While the 4th largest island in the Mediterranean might not seem like such an off-the-beaten-path location, it is, statistically speaking, still relatively unexplored by those millions of non-Europeans traveling to France yearly. Such a shame. With its almost unlimited supply of incredible things to see and adventures to experience, this southeast French island is a passionate explorer's dream come true.
Curious visitors can sight see at the Roman ruins scattered throughout the island, take an awe inspiring scenic ride along THE train, or pay a visit to Ajaccio, the home town of infamous general Napoleon Bonaparte. Looking for something a bit more adrenaline-inducing? Then take a multiple day trek through Corsica's rugged mountains, including the 180 km (112 mile) GR 20 and the Mare e Monti, or scuba dive the wrecks and underwater rock formations of the surrounding turquoise, tropically warm waters. Whatever your preference, a trip to Corsica will leave your French-adventure itinerary completely satisfied.
