We have 2 children
(5 and 9) and are beginning to plan our tour of Corsica
, Sardinia and north coast of Sicily
over 9/10 weeks this Summer. We are currently based south of Pisa, plan to leave there 1st June and will take our new berth near Naples in early August.
From our reading so far, our rough plan is to go direct Corsica
from the Tuscan coast - landing in Bastia or Macianggio - then down the west coast
of Corsica to Bonifacio and the Maddalenas. We then head
down to Cagliari (any better suggestions?) to restock and pick up a friend before crossing to Sicily
. In Sicily, we are looking at visiting the western tip, Palermo, Cefalu then onto Naples with a brief stop in the Aeolian Islands.
We have a few questions and are grateful for the knowledge on this forum.
1) Our current
thought is 7 weeks Corsica, Sardinia and 3 weeks Sicily. Is this a sensible use of our time?
2) Should we go down the east or west coast
3) Is there much to see inland on Corsica and Sardinia - should we be looking to take a berth for a week and hire a car on both islands?
5) As we are starting in the shoulder season and end in peak season, should we be ordering our trip differently to avoid the crowds?
6) We're interested in CF members' favourite spots along this route
and any unmarked dangers to highlight?
Thank you in advance!
