Corsica experts: Where should I spend an extra night?

Jump to last reply

Please help me to fine tune this itinerary.

After landing in Ajaccio and overnighting there, we plan to rent a car and drive to Piana for 2 nights (hike Calanques, boat trip from Porto to Scandola, and visit Plage Arone) then on way to Calvi, drive the Spelunca Gorge to Evisa and return, stay in Calvi for 2 nights, then drive to St. Florent (visiting Pigna on way) for 3 nights, where I'd like to drive Cap Corse and visit some of the mountain villages, then drive to Corte for 2 nights (drive Restonica Valley) then drive to Levie to eat/stay at A Pignata seeing Col de Bavello on way, then end up in Bonifacio for 2 nights before we take the ferry to Sardinia.

So, I'm wondering if it's best to spend that 3rd night in St. Florent or would it be better to spend it in Piana for driving the Spelunca Gorge. Can I get by with only one night in Calvi? I'm not sure of what there's to do there besides visiting the old town, since we'll have taken the Scandola boat trip out of Porto. Or, could I cut Corte to one night? Originally, I wanted to also stay somewhere near Porto Vecchio or San Giula to see the beaches, but ran out of time....unless you thinks it's better to do than than something else.

Please offer whatever suggestions you have. Thanks!
