The French island of Corsica lies central on this chart. To its south is the northern part of Sardinia, separated by the Bonifacio Strait. To its north is the Ligurian Sea and the coastal mainland of both France and Italy. Corsica is a mountainous island with many beaches. Its capital is Ajaccio which is located on the west coast.

Sardinia is the second biggest island in the Mediterranean (after Sicily). It is an Italian island with its capital and largest city being Cagliari. The Bonifacio Strait, which divides it and Corsica, has been charted several times by Latitude Kinsale.

The north west coast of Italy is shown, from the French border to Rome, including Genoa and Pisa. This allows the viewer to  put the area into perspective. The islands of Elba and Capri are also included off the western Italian coast.

The chart used in this instance is a classic black and white Admiralty chart with fine detailing. It is framed on a black background and has a charcoal mount and a black frame.
