This trail is in stunning landscape. We are not young and not hikers but reasonably fit. We took our time, taking photos along the way and it took us around one and a half to two hours. It is supposed to be a one hour...More

We went up there in the afternoon but it wasn't the best idea. After a few kilometers we turned and parked along side the road because a lot of cars were coming down and we couldn't pas them on the small road. We searched for...More

One of the natural wonders of Corsica is the Restonica valley. A must see when visiting the region. Drive all the way up to the paid car park at the end of the valley and hike/climb to one or both of the lakes to enjoy...More

We were staying in Corte so were fairly close but even then there were many cars that were already parked up. You pay 6 euro for tihsi pleasure. The road is single track for quite a way and falls away steeply on either side but...More

This is a tough hike alright. We drove all the way from Aleria until the Restonica parking. The drive itself is quite adventurous with narrow one way roads with no barriers separating you and the plunging gorge below!! But that's the fun of it!! You...More

Firstly, the road is extremely narrow. Best to have a very experienced driver behind the wheel! The drive is scenic though! Secondly, the hike! Stunning, it really is. I have never seen such beautiful scenery. However, be prepared. We walked up the trail and were...More

Very rocky trail, need good footwear, and courage for the chains and ladders near the top. Very popular walk, so pleased we did it in October when not crowded. The drive up is beautiful too.

Stunning views from the start. I can't recommend this trail enough. But the road to the car park for the lakes was for me, absolutely terrifying- your typical mountain route- no barriers, some blind bends, and only enough room for 1 vehicle. It's absolutely worth...More

it was on the road, the road was totally inaccessible... but you can still enjoy a walk along the river if you stop at the bridge.
