In September 2017 we hit the road for a camping trip towards Corsica in a rented VW bus. The rough plan was to drive there via Lake Garda and Pisa, take the ferry from Livorno and head back home through Zug in Switzerland.
As you can see from the picture on the left, we had to adjust our pace a bit. What looks like a miscalculation at first glance, turned out to be a pretty accurate estimation (and we even ended up taking the "slow" route east of the mountains). Especially on the west coast of Corsica, the roads are narrow with tall rocks on one side and steep cliffs on the other.
The east coast, on the other hand, is a fully developed tourist area with broad roads, big beaches and plenty of hotels. While this makes it easy to quickly cover a lot of ground, e.g. when you have a ferry to catch, the west coast is by far more beautiful, rough, and genuine.
Unfortunately we missed our chance to explore the central mountainous region since we eventually ran out of time. However, I'm sure this will not have been our last visit to this beautiful island full of "(Macchia)", wild boars, stinky cheese and mediocre (still amazingly delicious) wine.
