After the visit of the genovese city, you can go at the conquest of the region of Balagne.
To appreciate your stay in our region, the best is to rent a car... you will feel free to go wherever you want, at any time!
By chance, you could meet a craftsman in his workshop, or either way, take some height to have the most incredible panorama for your pictures.
As a family protecting the small one, the villages are facing the bay of Calvi, looking at the skyline and making sure no one attacks their citadel. The landscape from the villages is breathtaking. Don’t worry; follow the roads of Balagne, without asking any questions!
From Calvi to Calenzana, you will enter in the mountains. Then, you will go around the winding roads towards the highest villages… But this trip is worth the result.
If you have some time, you should stop in Pigna: watch the sunset from this gorgeous village, seating in front of the bay. Spectacular!
