Take a coach to see the ‘slowcoaches’ as you leave Ajaccio and enjoy a 40 minute drive through the Corsican countryside to a Tortoise Protection Centre, one of just three worldwide. Here you’ll have approximately one hour to see more than 130 different species of land and water based ‘cupulattas’ (Corsican for tortoises) and turtles.
You’ll then leave your new shell-covered friends behind and travel to the small seaside resort of Porticcio, nestling on the south side of the Gulf of Ajaccio. Upon arrival, you’ll have around one hour of free time to explore independently. You may choose to spend time on the beach, or purchase some refreshments and simply relax in one of the many cafés and restaurants that line the promenade.
