I read this book long before I went to Corsica in May of 2009. I found it to be extremely helpful in every way. Great details on the small villages in the Balagne region. Interesting history reading at the beginning of the book. Lots of coloured photos invites one to explore the whole area of this magnificent island. Would like to see more good restaurants listed. Taking it with me again in 2012. En fin, great reading.

I travel a lot and I am a slow reader. I want to be able to go to the topics I am interested in and places that I am planning to go without having to read the whole Guide. DK (Eyewitness Travel Guides) provide you with a birds-eye-view and then go into detail. You can easily pick & choose. Pictures are in color.

I would recommend this book as a first orientation to Corsica to get an idea of what's there. I liked how the book was organized according to the main areas of the island: Bastia and the north, Ajaccio and the west, Bonifacio and the south and Corte and the interior.
It made general trip planning easy to figure out where to focus your sightseeing and where you will be spending the most time based on the activities available.

It was outdated as I suppose books are allowed to be with restaurants and some attractions though. My husband and I tried to use it to find places to eat in Bastia and at least one place was closed down and another we couldn't find.

Just as a heads up to any Americans that are planning a trip here: brush up on your french! I would recommend this especially if you are staying in the North around Bastia. I had several years of french during my school years but found it quite hard to get by speaking with the locals. It is worth your while to practice in the months prior to relieve a little bit of that stress.
The french phrases that are listed in the back aren't necessarily helpful either, granted that isn't what it is claiming to do. Regardless, don't depend on this book for that. Make sure you are prepared with additional resources such as a smartphone with data plan or french phrasebook and dictionary.

I always buy this companies guide books. Their suggestions are usually right on, and there are always lots of great pictures and maps.
