Day 6 Ajaccio Corsica 9:00am - 6:00pm
We arrived early into the port city of Ajaccio Corsica. Mountains cover the majority of this island in the middle of the Mediterranean. The scenery is spectacular with the mountains rising up to 2000 metres. As we sailed into the harbour you could easily mistake it for the French Riviera, with chic restaurants and ...

Tomorrow will be a long day, with an excursion to Cinque Terre from the port of Livorno. Most people are going in to Florence/Pisa. Our boat has seemed a little rockier tonight and it has me feeling a little dizzy, so I’m hoping to get to bed early since we leave at 7 am.
