WRC Tour de Corse on the island of Corsica is an exciting rally - Corsica's tight and twisty mountain roads, often bordered by rock on one side and steep drops down to the sea on the other, ensure the event is a real test of skill. Stages pass through narrow villages which provide superb viewing points for spectators.
Set in the delightful olive groves of Montemagiorre, A Fiera di u Casgiu is a cheese and local produce fair including tastings, painting, cooking competitions and events for the little ones. The festival is a major event for the island's wine growers and farmers as they showcase their own locally grown produce. With two parcs in the area, why not plan an early summer getaway and enjoy this delightfully French festival.
A memorial night, or a 'notte de a memoria', with the re-enactment of the arrival of the French governor into Bastia, the capital of the kingdom of Corsica. This is a grand procession, with drummers, flag throwers, fencers, dancers and minstrels marching through the streets to the citadel, cloaked in light. 2018 date to be confirmed.
