Hi Mat, your right - that is the area.

You would be fine keeping up, I didn't race round too much

Lots of places to explore and loads of small islands, all worth a visit.

I have been in winter time, last year I was there. The temperature ranged from 12 degrees in the morning to 23 on the warmest day. Sunny the whole time and the sea ranged from flat to mildly exciting.

I will be there this winter for a couple of weeks and probably re-visit some of what I did. Also planning on checking out some places I've not been to.

Next year I may do a lap of Corsica and I also want to cross over to Italy mainland and perhaps Sicily as well.

I have to set up my mind and calculate everything.

To Greece I need to tow trailer only 1000 km Warsaw-Triest and continue trip via ferry (which is fun and can be count as vacation also). To Livorno I have much more (1600 I suppose).

Not sure if it is good idea to tow a boat via Alps during winter time.
Vienna-Graz-Slovenia is easy trip via summer but have never been here in winter.

Another possibility is airplane plus rent a boat. But my family is 5 persons so car + ferry is almost equal or less than airplane.

I have not been during Winter in Greece also.
I know that it can be one day 10BF, a few days 2BF.

Most temptations is good season for fishing (calamari's, doradas, ...).

Thanks again for sharing. I was sure that Itally, Korsyka are full packed of boats

When I took my boat to Corsica last year I got the ferry from Marseille to Corsica. But it would need planning as you have some distance to do.

I would think about keeping it there for some time, then just fly out for a week or so whenever you have the time.

Corsica / Italy are very busy in Aug, which for me is way too hot. May, June or Sept and Oct are great. Christmas is very quiet, but still sunny and warm.

Have you been on Christmas in Corsica ?
How was the weather / temperatures.
Did you tow and use boat ?

I'm looking for some destination for Christmas this year

Hi Trimix,
Great write up an pictures, sounds as if you had a really good time.

What did you clock up miles and engine hours-wise?
