the King of Aragon’s staircase. I’d seen a photo of the 187 steep stairs carved into the chalk white cliffs but nothing prepares you for the reality. Do not attempt to use the stairs if you have a fear of heights – though a safety rail has recently been added – it’s rather harrowing. Legend says Argonese soldiers created the 187 stairs in a single night! After lunch in a picturesque and deliciously rustic traditional restaurant in the countryside, we toured the remote Lavezzi Islands which looks as if the Caribbean has been plonked down just off the coast of Bonfacio. You can only reach them by boat, and you’ll find a haven of wild birds, and one swanky inhabited island where the rich and famous craving anonymity holiday, locals claim to have seen Beyonce, Princess Caroline of Monaco and former President Sarkozy there! Bonifacio street Cap Corse Docking in Bastia, a town of art and history and immense charm, we headed to Cap Corse making a stop at Clos Santini vineyard for a wine tasting where they poured generously and plied us with cheese and Corsican charcuterie – figatellu, smoked pork liver and other cured meats. From here we went to Barrettali for lunch at a restaurant at the Giottani Marina overlooking a fabulous beach. It’s one of those places that you see in French films, romantic, unspoiled and unbelievably beautiful. But you know you will never find it. Well here it is, one restaurant, one hotel and a whole lot of paradise. On the way back to the ship, we stopped off at Erbalunga, a charming and typical Corsican town, where a game of boules was taking place on the town square, little alleyways lead to the sea, and friendly bars and restaurants sit alongside shops selling clothes and handmade jewellery.
