Europe - more areas

France - Corsica
(highest first)

Col de Vergio -1467m: The highest paved pass in Corsica
Col de Sevi - 1103m : I bet there is a lot of great scenery up here, but it rained when I was here.
Col de Birgorno -870m: It looked good on the map, and it was better in reality
Col d'Arbitro -650 : a small road through remote villages without traffic
Belvedere de Saliccio -600m: a sidetrip near "Les Salanches" that provides a better overview of the area.
Col de Lava -480m: another name for "Les Salanches", a few km of stronly eroded rock formations with many visitors
Col de Palamarella/Croix -408m: This low pass follows one of the most scenic parts of the coast

Italy - Apennin
