Driving Around Cap Corse, Corsica

The northern tip of Corsica is narrow and rocky with one minor road going round the point connecting the scattered small communities.

It's a fabulous seaside drive for cars and bicycles - but be forewarned, the roads are narrow and constantly curving. There were lots of cyclists out for the day when we drove the route on a Sunday.

The east coast is fairly low, while the west coast rises up into steep cliffs.

We took a very steep, narrow side road (our rule of thumb: don't take any road that is less than 1 1/2 lanes wide) down to the tiny coastal community of Barcaggio.

One restaurant was still open and doing a bustling business in leisurely Sunday lunches. We disappointed the owner by not being able to eat a full course, let alone three courses.

The rock around Barcaggio was astonishingly green. 

Bell towers are often separate from the church in Corsica.
