Due to its geographical location in the heart of the Gulf of Genoa and the importance of the relief, the climate enjoys a marine and mountain influence. The very rapid variations in elevation between the coastline and the peaks induce marked contrasts, which are reflected in both temperatures and precipitation. In the mountains, the weather changes quickly. During the same day, and depending on the altitude, we can enjoy a splendid sunshine and summer temperature, but also experience a snowstorm and freezing temperatures. Be careful, you must carry a minimum number of items in your backpack to protect yourself from the cold or the sun! The late presence of snow on the massifs does not allow hiking above 2000 metres until mid-June.
We recommend a low-carbon train ride to Marseille, Toulon or Nice (France), or to Milan, Savona or Genoa (Italy). From there, you can take a ferry to Corsica.
