    This week-long cycling holiday will take you to discover Cap Corse and its Genoese towers. You will meet on your route many Genoese towers, guardians of the coast. You start your route from Bastia with its beautiful citadel and cycle along the east coast on a beautiful coastal road. From Macinaggio, you cross the Cap Corse inland to reach the west coast, more wild and steep. Beautiful winding roads on the mountainside lead you to charming hilltop villages such as Canari or Nonza. You will admire the stunning panoramas on the steep cliffs plunging into the turquoise sea. Then, you continue to Saint-Florent, the "Corsican Saint-Tropez", where you can enjoy a lively evening before cycling back to Bastia.
