We count the little mini train up to the Citadel, it is very big and there are some nice views and shops and restaurants up there. There is plenty of parking as long as you get there early, by about Midday the police are turning you away from the car parks and back down to the sea front.

We didn't know what to expect, but we were completely charmed by this old citadel turned tourist area. There were great shops and great restaurants, and it was just so much fun (and hard work in the heat) to stroll around. Magnificent views as well. We were lucky to be staying there, but if you come in from somewhere else,... More

BONIFACIO is a delightful town is Southern Corsica. If you come across on the ferry from Sardinia, your first view is stunning. This houses on top of the high cliffs seen to be glued on. And its wonderful to explore. Some wonderful old buildings, plenty shops and places to eat, especially by the water front. And don't miss looking out... More

During our holiday to Sardinia we took a trip to Bonifacio. It is one of the best places we have been. It's setting is stunning. The harbour is full of very expensive yachts, and the old town is full of restaurant's and loverly little shops. I would recommend the little train to go from the key side to the elevated... More

Absolutely worth a visiting the Citadel, one of the best places in Corsica, the medieval village, the panoramic view from the Citadel makes unforgettable. The cliffs and the sea is amazing. Luckily in the citadel are small shops to buy cold water in the very hot summer.

The place is nice, with narrow boheme streets, boiling with history, better see it from a distance or outside the busy season. The parking is a nightmare, everywhere in the city, the traffic is more than terrible - the only city in Europe where traffic is worse is Napoli, but this is another story. So if you're patient enough, it's... More

Charming citadel with plenty of restaurant and tourist shop, not really historical building but strolling through is very pleasant. Some nice view of the cliffs from couple of places. It is perfect for after beach and evening shopping and dinner

Wonderful site as you approach. Car parking difficult but free if you take a one hour boat trip which is really worth it as you see the City from the sea. We came later in the afternoon when it was cooler and used the little tourist train to save walking up some 190 odd steps. Stayed on for dinner in... More
