The little train is quite a pleasant way to get up and down the steep hills of Bonifacio, especially with three kids in tow on a boiling hot day. We paid 20 euros for our tickets, as they gave us one child for free, randomly,...More

On a hot day, this avoids having to climb up the hill to the citadel. There are some lovely views on the way up and it helps orientate yourself for exploring later on. It costs 5€ for a return ticket.
