The Island of Corsica is one of France’s 18 regional territories. It lies directly north of Sardinia and can be easily reached by ferry. Its capital Ajaccio is the birth place of Napoleon Bonaparte and his ancestral home is today used as a museum. Like other Mediterranean islands, Corsica was visited, conquered and highly influenced by many people of the ancient world. The Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Phoenicians, Genovese and Northern Africans all left their mark. France invaded and occupied in the mid 1700s. Today it relies heavily on agriculture and tourism. It is far less developed than many islands in the Mediterranean. Visitors come for the weather, the food and the glorious scenery.
Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean, presenting a rather rugged mountainous landscape, balanced by placid bays. In rural parts, stone-walled Neolithic fortresses call Nuraghes can still be seen in the fields. Sardinian towns and cities, especially those along the coast, have a rich tradition of shellfish and seafood while inland towns and cities are known for game and farm produce, most notably capers, olives and Pecorino sardo. The sea around this large Mediterranean Island is among the most beautiful and transparent in all the world. You will love the sights, the people, the food and the culture of this very special destination.
If year-round sunshine and 7,000 years-worth of living history is your thing, the ex-British colony of Malta should be on your bucket list. This independent nation is comprised of three small islands – Malta, Gozo and Comino (which is uninhabited). It is a traveller’s dream because everything the island has to offer is within a small radius, you can enjoy the grand architecture, stunning fortified harbour, traditional hilltop towns, fishing villages, and an upbeat lively capital city, all against the languid backdrop of the magnificent Mediterranean.
