Discover the jewels of the Mediterranean: Corsica and Sardinia.

Barely 10 miles of sparkling Mediterranean waters separate the islands of Corsica and Sardinia. Despite the proximity, the two offer distinct, unique holiday experiences. On this magical tour of Mediterranean islands, pass through these diverse landscapes. Glittering bays and luxurious beaches transform into enigmatic valleys, enchanting dense forests and crumbling hilltop villages in an impossibly short distance. In this beautiful spot of sunshine, glimpse a myriad of diversity. As well as this, travel through time and history come to life. Particularly with visits to the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte and the Garibaldi Museum.
