The corsican train is locally known as “Trinighellu”, meaning little train.

En résumé

Nowaday the train offers some breathtaking views of the corsican mountains so don’t hesitate to take a leisurely ride across the island.

Building the railroad was one the most important work in the island. Before the train, it took at least three days to go from Ajaccio to Bastia. If the first trains between Bastia and Corte started in 1888, it wasn’t completed until 1894, with its 295 kilometers of railroad. The hardest part was the Vizzavona tunnel, dug in the mountain for 4 kilometers.
