Ajaccio Highlights and Local Tasting
Duration: 4 hours
Tour Code: AJA-001
Corsica boasts many signature products that reflect its natural resources, and this excursion offers a rare and fascinating insight into how they're made. Journeying into the wooded hills on the outskirts of Ajaccio, you will first visit a family-operated nougat factory, where you can sample this delightful treat. While the ingredients may vary, they traditionally include honey, nuts, chocolate and liqueurs, which are locally grown or produced. Traveling on, you will stop at an essential oil distillery and discover how local herbs and flowers are carefully transformed into fragrant perfumes and oils. The land around Ajaccio is also ideal for the production of wine because of its elevation and climate. You will have the chance to taste some of the area's most distinct wines at a well-known vineyard, where the grapes are nurtured as they have been for centuries.
Please note: This tour includes approximately 2 hours of walking and/or standing during the stops, and there is a steep slope leading to and from the essential oil distillery. This tour is not suitable for mobility impaired guests. The order of the sites is subject to change.
