900 hectares of land and 1000 hectares of sea, more than enough nature to discover, right? This peninsula does not look the same at any time of the day. The red rocks stand out beautifully against the azure sea, and in the sea you can see brightly coloured coral. In addition to the beautiful nature, you will also encounter many animals in this reserve.
Of course, you will find a lot about Napoleon in the city of Napoleon, but in Ajaccio there is much more to do. Did you know that the Fesch museum has the largest collection of works of art in France, besides the Louvre? If you have absorbed enough culture, you can watch the luxury yachts from a terrace in the harbour of Ajaccio!
You can find these special rock formations between Ajaccio and Calvi.With a little imagination you can see different shapes in these rocks. A turtle and an eagle have already been recognised by many tourists. The whole valley with the rock formations can be seen in one day, but if you really want to make beautiful pictures, we recommend 2 days in this valley.
