“Very beautiful and very crowded”
Review of Bonifacio Citadel

Bonifacio Citadel
Ranked #1 of 46 things to do in Bonifacio
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

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 times, and though it takes my breath every time, I am kind of relieved when I leave ...

The Citadel at Bonifacio is very impressive- we enjoyed the old town, the views and history here. It is sad that the old military buildings are being allowed to decay. The restaurants lining the marina are all interesting and have friendly staff

I visited Corsica last July 2013, Took a ferry from Toulon,Cote D azur and arrived in Ajaccio, So beautyful. The mountains ,country city, everything is Outstading.Everybody MUST go there. The Cliffs ,no words. Hôtels are everywhere , and good service in most of them,price is good too even in the summer time. People are friendly,I will certainly go back.

this area is different from the rest of corsica because it,s a chalky plateau.
The setting is spectacular and makes for a nice excursion.
Blood-coral is still harvested and sold under french regulations.

Nice town, but very busy. In the harbor, it is a show for rich people and their boats. You can find all kinds of restaurants, expensive and cheaper. However, a negative point. Nearby the city walls of the citadel, it's really dirty. I don't get it, because you find everywhere cafes, where you can drink and use the toilet.
