Corsica considered an 'expensive' holiday destination

Corsica is thought of as an "expensive" place to go on holiday, a travel book editor has said.

Lucy White, editor of the Rough Guide to Corsica, has suggested that this opinion of the French destination holds particularly true in "the south around Porto-Vecchio and Bonifacio".

However, Ms White noted that despite its reputation as a "luxurious getaway", Corsica is also very popular with people who like to pursue outdoor activities such as hiking.

Because of this, there are a large number of camp sites and refuges to accommodate the visitors who enjoy like to enjoy hiking, horse riding and other types of physical entertainment while on holiday in the area.

Ms White commented: You can also enjoy canyoning, horse riding and mountain biking and the popular Via Ferrata - a climbing area complete with cables, ladder climbs and monkey bridges.

According to, Corsica is one of the largest tourist regions in France and has a culture that is largely influenced by Italy.
