Corsica is officially one of France's regions. It is an island in the  Mediterranean Sea located south of the Cote d' Azur and west of Italy which Corsica is actually closest to.  Corsican culture has both French and Italian elements as ownership has changed hands many times. It was briefly an independent republic before being incorporated into France in 1769. Napoléon Bonaparte was from Corisca.

This “mountain in the sea” has 120 peaks above 2000m, which remain snow-capped until the spring and a national park covers two-thirds of its surface area. There are ferries, mostly overnight that leave from various ports on the Cote d'Azur to take you there.

Places of note to visit in the north include:
- the capital of Ajaccio
- the cute little village of Piana
- the coast road next to the Calanche red cliffs overlooking the Porto Golfe
- the Foret de Piana to Porto a village on the bay with a few nice restaurants
- Calvi a seaside port with a citadel on the hill on one side and the snow capped mountains behind.
