Hello,
is there any possibility to pitch a tent at the Col de Vizzavona (we know the Gare de Vizzavona,but we like to camp at the Col)?

Thanks for helping
Frank

If we're talking about wild camping, there is a big parking lot at the col near the tarmac road. But it's not an attractive place.

There is a tiny campsite just off the col, at La Halte du Prince, beside the A Muntagnera restaurant. You can also hire one of their tents or stay in a chalet.

Fanta 65 you may want to take a look at this link of instantstreetview to survey the area. There is a lot of space under the trees.

Thanks for that Michele....looks an interesting place...have not been there and you don't see this when taking the train down to Ajaccio.
There is?, I think, another trail up to the Bocca Palmento where it joins the usual one up from Vizzavona.

Yes Gaffr, you cross this place if - coming down the cascades des Anglais - you take the shortcut to the right. See map https://i.imgur.com/MRWfH28.jpg

I had a look at the Instantstreetview and saw a notice forbidding tents and caravans!

Yes, GRRR20 infact in my previous post I said "wild camping" which - as everyone knows - in Corsica is forbidden.
