The drive up is challenging but the other drivers are very curious and considerate. The walk itself is gorgeous - all up hill with some ladders, then you get to the lake, make sure you walk down the other way so you don't have to climb down the ladders and get into a traffic jam:). We were lucky someone at... More

This gorge runs through the middle of Corsica and is just alongside the old capital of Corte. Visit the town then go to the gorge to bath and play in the river. The water is very very cold but you get used to it. You'll need a car to get there. Take dry clothes to change into and a picnic.... More

Corsica is one of my favourite holiday destinations - the sun, sea, food. scenery etc are all great and the people are really helpful, friendly and polite. When the sun is too hot head of to The Gorges and relax and cool off in the cooler waters of really great fresh water pools. There are lots of places like this... More

Driving up there is very nice. Especially with a sportscar. Walk was pretty heavy and nit for the fainthearted. Chains and the stairs were a bit overcrowded as quite some people were a bit scared to use them. All did it, but a bit slower than usual. If you are used to hiking in the swiss alps, nothing new here... More

magnificent mountain views on a road that winds and winds around the gorge. Good little restaurant halfway up.

You should park the your car at the end of asphalt road ( parking place) or in season even sooner, as it gets soon full. Local organizers usually show you to stop and park the car. Further up, it is quite steep trail (not long, but hard) with nice views, leading to 2 lakes. You should reach at least the... More

We were lucky enough to drive up the valley and hike to the Melo and then Capitello lakes on a fantastic sunny day in November. We started the hike from the parking at the end of the valley, our car was 3rd, it was only 3°C in the shade and the view was breathtaking! The trip down the valley in... More

Really splendid. The river goes through a narrow valley, and creates (thanks to the big rocks) a log set of natural pools of crystal clear water. Very nice to swim in summer. My advice: go to the end of the valley and take the hike up to the 2 lakes. It is only one hr each way (to the first... More

OK. So if you want to climb you need to drive thru the gorge quite a ways to the car park. (You can also stop along the way and swim-another activity, and it looked beautiful and idyllic. We wanted to hike, and it was a hard climb (we are in our 50's and active gym goers here). Very rocky and... More

Stayed at Colonna and enjoyed private access to this clear stream with ponds to enjoy. It is pure luxury! We saw many different places along the Restonica. Some places are very crowded. Parking is an issue
