“Loved the Citadel”
Review of Bonifacio Citadel

Bonifacio Citadel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 18, 2012

The history is amazing. The views are spectacular. The people were all very pleasant, even on a hot crowded day. We loved our day here.
Bonifacio's Old Town, with a labyrinth of narrow streets and historic buildings, was built by the Genoese and is a fascinating place to wander around. The medieval houses are precariously teetering on the edge of the imposing limestone cliffs.
We rode the train up for 10 euro each. The driver told us all about everything we saw but in French. There are plenty of stairs and walkways but not for the faint of heart.
I loved the store with all the items made from cork and the wood from olive trees.
Notice the photo with the small chapel - behind this chapel are stairs leading down to a very nice beach for swimming.

I adored Bonifacio and especially this part! It is jawdropping from a distance, and once you enter the gates and start walking the small, narrow twirling streets it gets even better! It gives a really genuine feeling even though it offers a lot of typically tourist shops and restaurants. At the same time, this accually still is the center of Bonifacio, so it is not only a touris attraction, but also a place where people live their lives! What a beautiful life it must be:)!

Bonifaccio is a beautiful walled city.
Superb views from the citadel across the straights to Sardinia sea.
Well worth visit.

The citadel thou beautiful on the outside on the inside it is not that well maintained and completely overrunby tourists even at the start of the season. Main attraction was the gallery next to the tourist office and the views over the sea and surrounding country side.
