Corsica Mare i Monti hiking trailAs a long hiking trail Mare i Monti is broken into stages and my hiking guide lists Tuarelli to Galeria stage (3:50h) on day 3 followed by Galeria to Girolata stage (5h) on day 4. I usually hike longer than 3h a day (hiking times are suggested by the guide for an average hiker) so I was wondering if anyone did Tuarelli to Girolata in a day? Is it feasible for a reasonably fit hiker to cover the distance in a day with an early start?
Furthermore has anyone tried to join Curzu to Serriera (3:15h) and Serriera to Ota (5:40h) stage into a one day hike as well?
Any advice much appreciated.

2I have the same experience as Eurotrash. In July it can be very very hot on Corsica, and there's a lot of terrain without shadow (trees) and water. We once had to abort an easy hike that we did mid-day because of the heat. It's a bit like Grand Canyon hiking (if you've ever done that in summer) - try to walk early or late. Take that into account when estimating how many hours per day you can hike.
