Very good road from north to Bonifacio. Entrance is quite confusing, with several roads branching off. Need to keep your wits about you, even when it isn't busy. Lots of parking... read more

We visited this as part of a tour. Our guide paid the fee and led us into the Citadel. He was very surprised to find that all of the exhibits had been removed. Really nothing to see. There is a good view from the walls, but you can get this from other parts of the city. Don't waste your money... More

Very good road from north to Bonifacio. Entrance is quite confusing, with several roads branching off. Need to keep your wits about you, even when it isn't busy. Lots of parking, but some of it can be difficult to actually get in to. The marina and seafront is packed full of restaurants, etc. There is a long rock staircase from... More

This is s great town for just walking around and taking in the sights. Give yourself at least half a day to do it justice. Have good walking shoes and walk out yo the bluff adjoining the citadel or walk down and up the hundreds of steps to the water line.

The most impressive city on Corsica for us was without any doubt Bonifacio. The day we arrived in the area we first made a trip by boat along the coast, which is impressive. Every corner of beach you approach or cave you enter is worthwhile taking pictures. The day we took the boat the sea what "agite" lets translate that... More

This was just amazing to see and even better to have an overall view of it coming from the golf course on the opposite cliff. One can only wonder at the engineering in those days!

We visited several times at different times of the year. Last time in early Nov 2014. It is worth a visit at any given time of the year. The old citadel was build centuries ago on top of the cliffs and with the erosion, some constructions are hanging on rocks and you wonder how people dare to live on them.... More

We arrived in the evening and enjoyed a sunset overlooking the cliffs. The old town is just stunning. Walking eastward along the cliffs gives you an amazing view of the city. Some images and more info can be found here: http://peak-exposure.com/adventures/2013/8/15/corsica

You must come here. I renewed my wedding vows here and you will find it magical. My children still talk about this place a year later and my wife wants us to renew our wedding vows here again for our 20th.

Sailed into Bonifacio harbor with a yacht. Exhilarating experience. Great town and sights. Nice strolls up the hill into the citadel and the old town. Take the time to tour the city - it's worth it. One caveat - the city is very very expensive, even off season !!!
