Corsica - Sardinia and Sicily - need help with itinerary

Jump to last reply

I am helping some friends with their travel arrangement to Corsica, Sardinia and Sicily. So far I am only working on the Corsica part of the trip. They want to stay approx one week on each island. My first question would have to be - does this make sense or should one island be allocated more time?

I have done a bit of research on Corsica and get the feeling - rightly or wrongly that the west coast is prettier than the east. If they only have one week would they be better focusing on Bonifacio - Sartene, Ajaccio, Piana, Calvi, cutting through the park driving the Col de Bavella and back to Bonifacio? I am not sure they could fit St. Florent, Bastia and Cap Corse into one weeks trip. CAn you please tell me if I am on the right track. Even though the distances are not great I understand the driving and many roads are hard going and can take hours if the traffic isn't good. They are going in early April, which would mean certainly less traffic.

They are in their 60s, she has back trouble and can't do any hiking but can do slow walks, they want to mooch around, stop for views, lunches etc, see pretty villages, take a boat trip and get a general feel of the place. They are not interested in sitting on the beach and at that time of the year swimming would be out as well.

Next question.... are they better off staying in a couple of places and doing days trips from a base or should they just keep heading in a direction and moving along and then return to Bonifacio before taking the ferry to Sardinia. I understand they cannot take the car across and must rent again when they get to Sardinia. They are flying in from Nice, the other idea would be to fly into Bastia, rent the car, then drive down the west coast to Bonifacio with a day trip through the Aiguilles de Bavella and the Col de Bavella which sounds like a not to be missed thing.

CAn anyone help with my ideas - Barefoot??? I have read and reread your report, but there are no "times" to work on and you had a longer time than 7 days. would you divide your time between the three islands equally? Also they don't want to take the ferry from Sardinia to Sicily - can you fly? I can't seem to get this answer easily on the net.

Thanks everyone, Schnauzer
