Gulf of Porto is maybe one of the nicest place of Corsica, the island of beauty or Kalliste like the greeks used to call it. Cliffs, mountains, beaches, volcanic rocks and gorges … there is a lot to see for the hikers. Classified by UNESCO, the Calanques of Piana offer magnificent landscapes with the red cliffs with strange shapes coming from some very old volcanoes.

We will also taste the local food in Girolata, a small village on a peninsula surrounded by the sea.
