This structure built high up on the cliffs and hosts a fantastic view overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.

Surprisingly seafood is not as popular as one would think because of its location in the middle of the Mediterranean (if you are craving fish it is still quite easy to find). Rather, this island’s local meals have a heavy emphasis on meat. Traditional dishes include wild boar, veal, cheese, and chestnuts. You will also find a strong mix of Italian and French influence in many of the popular bites. While visiting various restaurants you may come across dishes such as Agneau Corse or Stufatu. Agneau Corse is roast lamb with potatoes while Stufatu is a lasagna dish made with three types of meat and packed with flavor. On your catamaran charter in Corsica, make sure to try fiadone.
