Just off the south of France, and closer to the coast of Italy, the small, mountainous island of Corsica lies in wait for the three million tourists that visit its shores each year.

It's no wonder why our readers have voted Corsica one of the most beautiful places in Europe.

Corsica might just be your all-in-one European island break. Whether you've already visited, are planning to or have never even heard of Corsica, here are 23 pictures that'll give you some serious wanderlust.
