Probably the most beautiful city in South Corisca. Lots of history to it. The views around are magnificent. I would strongly advise to be there before 10am if you want to get a car park. If you can't get one after just entering the town, the car park at the Haut Village (think it is P7) is your next best... More

The most beautiful city in south Corsica with some very nice restaurants. If you don't like to walk, just take the the small train.

This is a most magical place. Walking here is taking a leap back in time. Ancient buildings, stunning views and some amazing restaurants are a few things the Citadel has to offer. The narrow roads and stone buildings enhance the true character of Corsica. A must see.

A "don't miss" small city., worth the short climbing from the port (where is easier to park, even for free, if you do one of the boat trip, apparently). Walk also towards the cemetery, a bit farer from the crowd, with its special atmosphere and nice view down to the sea.

Stairs in the stone Escalier du Roy d'Aragon + museum Bastion de l'étendard + sea tour of the bay made a terrific day in Southern Corsica. History ans Nature are united in this unique place in the world. Magical memory.

We travelled from Ajaccio to see this beautiful town and found it a brilliant place to visit with the old town, shops and the steps. It was fairly busy, but not to cause any problems but this is to be expected of any pretty and historic town. Definitely a place to visit.

Really worth the visit. We liked the most the underground of the bastions (the ticket 2,50 euros/person), where once guard soldiers stayed. Didn't try the stairs for the lack of time. A good idea is to rent an audio guide (5 euros; different languages) - you must leave your ID in pledge - you'll need at least 1,5 - 2... More

This town is really worth visiting. The scenery is amazing. The sea is so clear. Little restaurants are so nice. Little french skills are useful.

It's an amazingly beautiful city but just for a day (half day), as it's overcrowded with tourists it's not worth lingering too long there, especially given the fact that lots of people working there (shop owners & so on) are quite surly and unwelcoming (woman at the boulangerie, waiters at cafes, and so on ...). I have been there several... More
