Most famous as being the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte, Corsica is a stunning Mediterranean island regardless of historical context. Located closer to Italy but owned by France the island has a culture that is indebted to both. One of the main tourist draws is the house of the Bonaparte family who lived here for many generations dating from the 17th Century to the 20th. The former home is now primarily a Museum in memory of the former French revolutionary. There were many battles over this stunning island and as such there is a rich nationalist vein running through its people, Italian was the primary language for many years but now a hybrid of Italian and French is spoken.
Corsica is reputed as the most mountainous island in the Mediterranean Sea and as such there is a wealth of outdoor activities to partake in including trekking and climbing in some of the most beautiful scenery on the planet. There are a remarkable number of options for accommodation on the island but one of the most fun is camping and as such there are a number of sites located around the island.
