  Travel and itineraries

It has been a long time since we dreamed of having an experience with the roof tent,
but before making the purchase, we wanted to experience this kind of journey.
The Vivishare rental was right for us!

We then left Mestre towards Cles (TN), where Michele was waiting for us
to mount the Maggiolina on the roof of our car.

The destination of this traveling holiday was Corsica;
we planned to travel throughout its perimeter.

Day 1: 17 September

Embarking at the Livorno port at 8 am, we arrive after four hours in Bastia.
The weather is not the best, so we decide to head towards the first
camping nearby (Camping A Stella) south-east of Cap Corse,
the finger of Corsica in the north of the island.

After the rainy afternoon, spent resting for the first time in Maggiolina,
take a bath on the beach in front, and then end the day
with the sun going down fast on the horizon.

Day 2: 18 September

Today the sun is shining so let's start exploring this island.
We go towards the northernmost tip, that does not turn out, to our amazement, to be so close.
It takes us almost two hours to reach it.
We will find out later that this will be normal for almost all of Corsica,
but the landscapes that you cross make the journey very pleasant.

When we arrive at Barcaggio, we spend some hours in the crystal clear water and
then return to our base. On our return, we come across what will be
a characteristic of the island: goats (cows and pigs then) along the roadside.

Cap Corse

We arrive at the camping, and this evening a special place and panorama await us.

Day 3: 19 September


Today's stage is the Desert des Agriates, in particular, the Saleccia beach.
We do not do it with our Jeep and Maggiolina, but with a 4x4 of a local agency.

The journey to the sea lasts an hour and is very fun,
as well as very beautiful given the special place that you cross.
What we see in the passage to the beach leaves us speechless.

This time we spend the night at a campsite near the village of Saint Florent (Camping D'Olzo).

Day 4: 20 September

We try to wake up early to go shopping and then go to the mountains,
in the inland/north.

After about an hour we find ourselves crossing incredible rocky landscapes, along a river.

So we arrive at our third stage (1000 meters altitude), the Monte-Cinto Camping.
It is a campsite in the middle of the woods, on a river with cold and clear water.

We spend the afternoon between walks, refreshed on the river and relax.

Day 5: 21 September

Today we have the longest car ride of the whole holiday.
We aim to reach the west coast of the island, south of Ajaccio.
After about three hours drive we arrive at the camping on the sea
(Camping Chez Antoine).
We decide to spend the rest of the day on the beach in front,
with coarse-grained yellow sand and light blue water.

Day 6: 22 September

We decide to keep the campsite as a base for another night
and let's go to visit Cala D'Orzu, a little further north. To get there, we discover we have to
go down a dirt road downhill, which we face with pleasure.

South of Ajaccio

In the afternoon the wind begins to rise, so we return to the base.
Then we spend some time on the beach in front, where we come across waves
more than a meter tall! It seems to be facing the ocean.

Day 7: 23 September

We continue south, making a stop at Roccapina, a beach with white sand.
Before going down to the sea, we stop at a vantage point
to admire what nature has built with the rock.

Rocca Piana

After spending the day in this paradise, we continue to the southern tip of Corsica,
to stop at a campsite near Bonifacio (Camping Pian del Fosse).

Day 8: 24 September

Today we spend the day in Canetu beach, the only one we find sheltered
from the strong wind of these days.

Along a dirt road, we arrive by car to this little haunted little cove.

 The gusts of wind animate our following night and shake
the olive trees of the camp, but we feel safe inside our nest above the roof.

Day 9: 25 September

Since the wind does not give a break, we decide to head back to the mountains,
this time those of the south of the island. After a journey of about an hour,
where you also meet an artificial lake in a very suggestive place,
we arrive at the campsite where we will spend our last three nights in Corsica.
Camping La Rivière is located in a forest corner and has private access to the adjacent river,
which forms deep basins, where you can dive in.

Given the cold evening, we decide to go to dinner in a restaurant in the country, Zonza,
in which the specialty is wild boar meat and chestnut, which accompanies many dishes.

Day 10: 26 September

Today the wind has calmed down, and even in the mountains, the sun begins to heat up.
We go to 1500 meters to visit the Plateau du Cuscionu. This landscape
remind us the Nordic ones, given the green and the constant presence of water.
It is a protected area that hosts the transhumance of many species of animals,
but in this period we found only some horses and sheep.

Plateau du Cuscionu

After lunch, we return to the camping and relax by the river.

Day 11: 27 September

Today we go to the Col de Bavella, a mountain site from which many walks depart.
Arrived at the starting point, however, we find it clogged with machines and people,
so we decide to continue the road towards the Cascades de Polischellu, natural pools.
After a short walk inside the forest, we reach the largest basin,
where the people do canyoning activity. We take courage and plunge into this clear water
but so cold that it takes your breath away.

Cascades de Polischellu

The peaks of these mountains remind us a bit of our Dolomites.

Day 12: 28 September

It's time to go back home, unfortunately. But since the arrival in Livorno is after 20,
we stop to eat and sleep in camping
in the province of Pisa (Agriturismo Lago Le Tamerici).

Day 13: 29 September

We spend most of the day by car, to go to Cles
to bring the maggiolina back. However, before we meet Michele, we do the last visit
of our holiday at Lake Tovel,
a place we always wanted to visit.
