Welcome to Corte

These days, life focuses on the newer town below, linked to the citadel by steep stairways and cobbled alleys. While Corte remains a nationalist stronghold, famous for being secretive and inward-looking, it’s also home to Corsica’s only university, founded by Paoli and reopened in 1981. Its strong youthful energy is boosted in summer when hikers, bikers and climbers flock in to explore the nearby valleys.

By the end of the tour, you'll feel comfortable navigating the city and confident that you have all the information you need to make the most of your stay. Through conversations with your Lokafyer, you’ll learn about cultural differences, local events, and what it’s like to be a true local. The more notice, the better, as these tours are organized on demand and are completely personalized. With this experience, you won’t be just passing through the city, you’ll be part of it.
