Preparation

Visiting corsica was more an accident than a planed tour. I made plans to visit Tunisia. The day before i started the trip i copied some of my documents (like drivers license, passport and other things). The passport i copied last. And i forgot it in the copy machine. I realized it when i arrived at the ferry port in Genoa when the staff asked me for the ferry ticket and the passport.

So i had to find a new destination where i can go without my passport and i decided to visit Corsica and Sardinia. But i stayed for the whole time in Corsica. It is definitively a bikers paradise!

Formulars

When you are an european (EU) citizen you don't need much. Your driving license, your id card and registration paper is enough.

Ferry

I took the ferry from Livorno to Bastia. You can buy the ferry ticket near the harbor. It was a little bit tricky to find it.
But you can ask the people, they will help you.

Bike

No special preparations.

Immunization

No special immunizations.

The Trip

From Germany to Livorno

I started the trip directly after work and road the highway A5 down to Lörrach. Slept in a cheap hotel and the day after i crossed the alps through switzerland using the highway A2 to Busto Arsizio in Italy.

There i took a room via airbnb and the next day i traveld through the ligurian mountains to Genoa. Which was a very amazing day. I took the small roads through some national parks which where pretty amazing.

After realizing that i forgot my passport, i traveld down to Pisa. For this i took also the small roads through many national parks.
