Bonifacio and it's medievil town are best seen from the sea and land.for a multiple perspective of this beautful Italian-influenced French city. Take the small boat at the marina for a cruise off-shore and marvel at the buildings perched high atop a promontory of chalk-white limestone. You'll sail through a low passageway in the cliff that leads into a large... More

All in French but you don't need to understand as most of it is local myth rather than fact. Great to cruise out of the harbour in the middle of Bonifacio's super yachts. Strongly recommended.

Bonifaccio! It's worth the efforts getting here! When you finally find a parkingspot, Bonifaccio embraces you with its charm! The harbour is lined with magnificant boats and nice restaurants and cute shops. You need a good pair of shoes and a fairly good condition to climb your way up to the city on the cliffs. But once you're up there... More

Lots of boats allow you to visit the grotte nearby Bonifacio, along with the calanques. The water has wonderful colours, and there is always a guide on the boat giving interesting/funny informations (in French, actually, but probably there are some English tours as well). The view of the citadel from the sea is wonderful.

The price for the boat-trip is 17 euro per person. The trip lasts one hour, and the view is amazing! Unfortunately the guide speaks only French, but it definitely worths the price!
