Your day by day program
Your trip starts in your hotel in the afternoon. This will give you plenty of time to discover the capital of northern Corsica in the morning. The delightful old port, freely accessible citadel and old part of town offer spectacular panoramic views over the sea and the surrounding mountains. In the evening, we recommend that you walk around the old port to enjoy its lively atmosphere.
Night in a 3-star hotel in Bastia.
In the morning, you will start cycling northwards along a coastline road, with beautiful rugged landscapes of cliffs and jagged shores. You will then cross the island to reach the West Coast. As you descend the Cape, maquis-shrouded hills, dotted with crenelated old Genoese towers, will quickly unravel before your very eyes. The west side of the Cape also holds a magnificent cluster of tiny fishing ports, set against sublime turquoise waters.
Night in a 2-star hotel in Canari
59 km (D+ : 1071m ; D- : 794m ; Min. : 1m ; Max. : 381m)

After leaving the Cape, you will head south in the direction of St Florent. Depending on which itinerary you choose, you will have the opportunity to ride through Patrimonio, the Corsican capital of wine-making, via the Col de Teghime or a superb little-known back road. Both roads offer stunning views over the Gulf. Once you have reached St Florent, you will be able to enjoy strolling down the port and the town’s enchanting little streets. A visit of the citadel is also recommended.
