Corsica (Ajaccio) Prunelli Gorges Excursion Reviews

Red granite cliffs plunge into a river, and chestnut and pine trees dotting majestic mountains make up these stunning gorges that are found within the rugged landscape of Corsica.
Our guide an Englishwoman who lived on the island for 50 years was superb.

Our guide an Englishwoman who lived on the island for 50 years was superb. The views of the gorge were good but I did not find the scenery spectatcular. However, the excellent commentary by the guide made this a worthwhile trip. Not for the faint of heart. The bus travels on a windy narrow road and on occasion the bus projects our over the curb leaving you feeling like you are about to plunge into the gorge. Read Less

Winding steep roads in a large bus were a bit terrifying. Great guide made up for it with her British sense of humor and in depth knowledge of the mountains and its people.

The trip was worth taking as it gave a glimpse into the mountain countryside that makes up most of this lovely island. The route includes some hair-raising narrow roads and tight bends along the sides of the mountains. Fortunately these were slowly and carefully navigated by our local coach driver. In the afternoon we took a stroll on our own up to Napoleon's monument and back to the ship along the coastal promenade. Read Less

The Prunelli Gorges look like a stream you'd see pretty much anywhere in the mountainous regions of the US. Our bus stopped on the side of the road and let everyone out to take pictures from a one-lane bridge of the Prunelli Gorges. It's pretty, but nothing spectacular. The stop at Lake Tolla was much more interesting! This artificial lake is very beautiful as is the town that's nestled beside it. The bus ride is probably the main attraction. The roads through the mountains are narrow and have no guardrails. While the buses are only allowed to go one way on those roads, the cars are not. Be prepared to hold your breath while the bus goes through the switchbacks only to be face to face with a car (who cannot get by the bus). I was relieved to be back in town after the tour. Read Less
