Photos - Corsica (France) 

The island of Corsica is located west of Italy and south of France and covers about 8700 km2. Corsicas population is approx. 260000 people, about the half of them living in the two bigger towns, Bastia, Ajaccio and Calvi. The official language on Corsica is French, however, many people speak Corsu, which is a language of Latin origin and closely resembles Italian.

Corsica has the highest mountains and the most rivers of all Mediterranean islands, with Monte Cintu being its highest peak at 2710 meters. Its climate varies from Mediterranean at sea level to alpine in higher regions. The rough and impressive landscape, the friendliness of its population, and last but not least the excellent Corsican cuisine are attractive arguments for a visit to Corsica.
