A marvelous site

The entire area surrounding the citadel is very unique and special. Plan to also visit the cimetière marin.

We drove down to see Bonifacio from our stay at Les Bungalows, just above Porto Vechio. It only took about an hour. we arrived early and there seemed to be plenty of spaces, then I went to go into one near the harbour, it was 50c per 15min far to much if you want to spend a day in the... More

We were staying at a local hotel and spent about 4 hours walking around the citadel. The views are spectacular and well worth the trip. Bring plenty of water to keep you cool in the summer!!

Corsica is a great place, so much culture. Set off on foot to explore the city or bit on the beach and soak up the rays and enjoy the blue waters. There's a market here selling meats, bread, fruit and veg etc. It's all local stuff so do take a look. Some great photos can be taken around the streets,... More

We decided to spend a day in Bonifacio and after the relative quiet we had experienced elsewhere the town was jam packed. Parking was difficult and I can only imagine that in July and August it would be nearly impossible. That said it was worth the trip. The port is set apart from the Citadel and it feels like two...

First of all, it's very difficult to find a parking place. We spent 45 minutes looking for one. The citadel itself is no better than other citadels in Corsica (Ajaccio, for ex.). It is true that up there you find nice restaurants, and have a wide view over the port area. The cobbled streets up to the citadel are difficult... More

Wandering around the streets and the views. Great places to eat, interesting walks around the ramparts and to nearby coast.

As we only spent one day in this beautiful city, my boyfriend and I had to decide which attractions we want visit in Bonifacio. We really enjoyed the walk up to the citadel, there were many shops and nice cafés. The view was fantastic! We spent there at least an hour in the sun! You can take fantastic photos, look... More

My wife and I visited Bonifacio in southern Corsica in May of 2015. We enjoyed fine weather requiring only light summer clothing, the temperature was circa 23 degrees C. My French is very basic and we followed signs suggesting free parking, however this turned out to be free for those taking boat trips otherwise it was 7e for the day.... More
