Walking Holidays in France - Corsica
Corsica is one of the 26 regions of France, although strictly speaking Corsica is designated as a "territorial collective" by law. As a territorial collectivity, it enjoys greater powers than other French régions. Corsica was incorported into France in 1769, but enjoys a seperate culture which predates this date to the time that it was part of Italian protectorate of Genoa.
The island is 90 kilometres (56 mi) from Tuscany in Italy and 170 kilometres (110 mi) from the Cote d'Azur in France. It is separated from Sardinia to the south by a minimum of 11 kilometres (6.8 mi) wide.
The predominant language in Corsica is French, however the Corsican language is spoken widely especially in the mountains.
