We arrived in Calvi Sunday evening and found a great place for dinner at the marina. Our hotel was very nice and the location was excellent. We did a boat ride to the Scandola nature reserve one day. It was OK, but I wish we'd taken a smaller boat that could go in and out of the caves. One day we drove up to Notre Dame. The views were gorgeous. On Wednesday morning we drove to Bonifacio. Our friends went diving that afternoon while we enjoyed the beach. Thursday we chose to relax on the beach again and then visited the Citadelle/old town. We really enjoyed that. The hotel in Bonifacio was beautiful.
Best parts:
We loved both Calvi and Bonifacio. The hotels in both cities were great, but our favorite was the Hotel Version Maquais Citadelle in Bonifacio. We enjoyed the beach, Scandola nature reserve and dinners at the marina.
Worst parts:
We didn't have enough time, but that was due to our schedule. No reflection on the travel agent.

Bonifacio was one of the main highlights of this trip because of its citadel and history. The museum in Bastia was excellent as the first stop because it provided the explanations and setting for the rest of the trip. The national parks and forests also were highlights with some areas reminding us of our own national parks in North America. The animals were also delightful because they seemed to want to communicate with us whenever we stopped and let them have the 'right of way'.
Best parts:
It was a unique trip that combined for us the best scenic views of a rugged landscape and contrasted that with the difficulties that the locals must have just getting to work or another city. The colors of the sea were wonderful. The animals on the road were always interesting if not sometimes dangerous. Not so much for us but for them. The trip was well organized and the map was well marked, which was an easy way to follow along our progress on the trip. The people we met were interesting and engaging. This was a highlight of our six month trip to Europe this year.
Worst parts:
We did not allot enough time at each place to get a better perspective of each area. Of course, it means that another trip is necessary.

Best parts:
Our guide was so enthusiastic about corsica! He took us to such beautiful overlooks and suggested a lovely picnic lunch up high by the old church! That was the best part! Loved the market in Ile Rousse
Worst parts:
The roads are very winding and one of us got a little carsick! Not enough time to visit any artisans

We hiked for two days, biked for a day, relaxed, shopped and saw many landmarks. It was a BEAUTIFUL and PERFECT 5 day trip!
Best parts:
This trip was AMAZING! There were lot's of great parts: - The 2 day hike was amazing, best views ever! - The accommodations were perfect. - The team of travel agents were responsive and flexible for our requests throughout planning and during the trip.
Worst parts:
Only two small complaints: - If you're not used to riding bikes a lot, I wouldn't recommend going 30km+ in a day. You will probably get sore (we did, and so we couldn't bike a 2nd day). It all worked out because we spent the day relaxing by the pool instead :) - If you go to some of the smaller towns in Corsica, they may not take credit cards or have ATM's. We were lucky to have some cash with us, but if we hadn't, we wouldn't have been able to eat dinner!
