Corte is an important road junction, on the T20 between Bastia and Ajaccio, and linked by the T50 with the east coast. Be warned, though, that the smaller mountain roads hereabouts, such as the dead-end D623 into the Vallée de la Restonica, can be terrifyingly narrow, with precipitous drop-offs.


As the cross-island railway runs via Corte, it offers several daily connections both northeast to Bastia and southwest to Ajaccio, with the latter route offering additional stops at the mountain villages of Venaco, Vivario and Vizzavona.
