To start talking about Corsican culture and especially music we have to know Corsica as a locale a little bit. If you have not known – Corsica is a part of France. It an island and the fourth by size in Mediterranean region.
Corsica is usually visited by tourists because of the beaches with whitest sand and clearest blue waters. Here are top 10 beaches for you to visit and get to now. They are as picturesque as you cannot even imagine. But don’t forget other great advantage of Corsica’s land. It is full of mountains and inlands for you to hike and get to know. Country’s communities are small villages. They are mixes of French and Italian culture, because of the history. First, Corsica belonged to Italy, then Genoa, and in 18th century was purchased by France. That’s why the oldest buildings show off Italian taste and newer buildings and details will remind you of France. In whole, villages are stunning to see, peaceful and quiet; they will calm you down with sound of ocean waves, so it is a perfect place to have relaxing holiday. While feeling serene in the day time on the beach or walking through villages, if you still have energy and won’t be feeling too relaxed, you need to explore the nights in Corsica when another side of the culture awakes.
