Fabulous!

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 !!!

We spent one day in Bonifacio, on our way to catch the ferry to Sardinia. I would happily return there for several more. It climbs up the cliff side towards the citadel, and has several interesting churches and museums. It is amazing to see the dwellings perched along the cliff face, and the cliffs themselves are spectacular. The narrow, steep,... More

We took the tram up from the lower town, and spent half the day wandering around the town. There are plenty of shops selling the same t-shirts and postcards that you can buy down below for far less, but if you ignore them, seeing how people live in the citadel (there's a primary school within, for example) is a lesson...

I came to Bonifacio for the day from Alghero - a long trip by bus and ferry - but well worth the effort, including the effort of walking up to the old town. The views from the ferry as one heads towards the cliffs and then into the marina are fantastic. There's an audio tour that you can do or... More

Must see if in Bonifacio or near by. Plenty of history here dating back to the 11th century. You can take a ferry here to Sardinia (Italy), only a half hour ride. Great vistas from the parapets. 10 on my scale of things to see in Corsica
