Review of Bonifacio Citadel

Bonifacio Citadel
Ranked #1 of 46 things to do in Bonifacio
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Reserve at least 1/2 day for exploring this part of city, with pictoresque streets, nice church and small shops. Do not miss the marine cemetery and boat trip to cave. Must see place in the whole Corsica, also very nice in the night.

Since it was winter, most of the shops and all the hotels and restaurants were closed in the citadel, but it was still very worth while to climb up to the walled city, to roam its narrow streets, and to look over the outer walls at the sea or the port.

during our trip to Corsica we rented a car (very practical) and decided to check Bonifacio. We were taken by its views and small narrow streets... we came back 2 days later to see its known cemetery! our advantage was that we went in September, a relatively low season for tourists, so it was easy to talk to people and find places at good restaurants. It was definitely one of the most beautiful sites on the island.

The large amount of trinket shops
Restaurants that appear not to like serving vegetables with meals and then charge a lot.

Bonifacio looks great but from a boat it looks even better!
Go to the harbor and buy a ticket for approx 17 euros for a trip along the coast for about an hour. You can see the citadel from a different angle.
The downside is that there were a lot of tourist shops which doesn't do the authenticity any good.
