Most interesting scenic route to Corte from Bonifacio

We are spending 2 weeks driving around in Corsica, starting at Cap Corse and ending in Corte. There are several routes we could go from Bonifacio to Corte. We are doing this part of the trip for wonderful scenery and little mountain villlages. We can even stay somewhere along the way, but which is the most beautiful scenic way to go? We are not afraid to winding roads.

Assuming you will already have taken the west coast road past Roccapina and Sartene, I would recommend the following route:

Bonifacio, to Porto Vecchio. Then inland to Zonza with a short side trip to Bavella. Then continue through Quenza to Aullene. Turn right to the col de la Vaccia and Zicavo. You can stay overnight at :

Then on over the col de Verde to Ghisoni, the col de Sorba, Vivario and Corte.

2. Re: Most interesting scenic route to Corte from Bonifacio

Thanks so much for that idea. We were planning to go up and do the Col de Bavella through Zonza on one of the days we are staying in Bonifacio as a day trip, then try to go a different way up to Corte, but maybe your suggestion makes more sense...to do that and keep going rather than back to Bonifacio that day. We will have been to Sartene on the way down to Bonifacio, but there are so many roads up into the mountains that we were wondering if we should go back to Sartene and go up to Corte through Aullene and Zicavo. And then there is the road through Vizzavona but we do not want to go all the way back to Azaccio to do that one. Any and all suggestions are welcomed. We really do want to see the beautiful interior of Corsica but also want to take routes that make sense. Thanks so much!
