The drive from Calvi to Porto was exceptionally rewarding in terms of views but requires real concentration with the narrow, tortuous road.

We drove between Porto and Piana. Spectacular views along the coastline looking out at the calanques. Cute place to stop with great views, but not so good coffee, is Les Roches Bleu, midway. There were a great number of tourists walking along the road particularly...More

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.

One should concentrate in the driving here while the one seating on the passenger seat is the papparazzi. Beautiful area. It is just rocks but what a magnificent beauty! Be patient while here as many people stop and park their car in a narrow road....More

This is an amazing route going from Calvi to Ajaccio. The route is quite narrow and it’s necessary to drive carefully and slow, what is not a sacrifice at all, since the views are so astonishing, that you really want to keep that experience as...More

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.

beautiful and spectacular views! I can go from Piana to Porto with a normal busservice 4 euro and the bus driver will tell you everything about the rocks!

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
