There is a general threat from terrorism across the whole of France, but especially in Corsica. Attacks could be indiscriminate. You should remain vigilant in public places including on public transport. The French authorities announced on 12 January 2013 increased security around public buildings and transport.
There have been a number of explosions, failed explosions and other attacks in Corsica. Government buildings, restaurants, police vehicles, bars, a discotheque and holiday homes have been targeted. The authorities believe the Corsican nationalist group the FLNC are responsible, and have warned that attacks could escalate.
Please be aware: following the attacks in Paris in 2015, and to ensure the safety of visitors, many museums and attractions are applying preventive measures taken by the government to public administrations. The museums are open under normal conditions, but luggage is not permitted regardless of size.
