Incredible beauty. The winding road is as you see in the pictures. You will go slow anyway. Enjoy the ride. If you can take a tour you will have more time to appreciate the incredible views

The amazing drive through these amazing red-rock formation is WOW. For the wary, drive it in the AM before the traffic on wheel and foot arrives. The narrowness of the road requires full attention of the driver.

Incredible way to view Corsica’s beautiful landscapes - see everything from the beautiful blue sea, the the lush greenery, and the breathtaking rocky cliffs.

The winding road and steep cliffs are beautiful. There are many places to park and enjoy the views and take photos. A unique place.

Stunning views! Steep grounding. Narrow from time to time. Not too many parking places along the road. But if you succeed in parking the car there is a lot to see.

This is a wonderful 3 km drive through the red rocks called Les Calanche. The drive is beautiful, some of the best views on the island. There is a nice little cafe on the north end. But beware, there are huge tour buses that come...More

We took the D81 from Calvi to Ajaccio passing (and staying) in Piana. It's like highway 1 in California or Oregon but much narrower (so drive SLOWLY) and with no big towns in between. Gorgeous views, lots of stopping places and hikes all around. Lots...More

Average speed depends on time of the year(traffic). We were there in September. Traffic yams because of narrow roads and touring cars. Cruising speed 50 km/hr max. Corsica is perfect for scenic driving but it takes more... More
