The route is leading through the nature places of Corsica. There you can enjoy nice views towards mountains and take photos or just take a rest.

A great ride -- wonderful views, the road itself is very twisty but not too complex and wide enough for two cars to pass in most places.

We did a tour of the Bavella Needles, by taking the GR20 high route variant, then circling back via the GR20. Guide books says 7 hrs round trip, it took us 5 hours plus 1 hour break for lunch. There was one hairy part on...More
