“Worth seeing”
Review of Calvi Citadel

Calvi Citadel

Attraction details
Reviewed 25 June 2018

Prepare for a climb , but it is worth it . The citadel is a collection of houses perched on the hill , it is though quite extensive , the cathedral is well worth seeing and there are a number of restaurants , thankfully there are not many gift shops these are located in the town centre .
It is possible to walk around the "battlements" of the citadel where there are extensive views
You will need to allow a coupe of hours and it is worth pointing out that there is a car park just by the citadel , for about 4 hours it was circa 10 Euros

Aside from the sandy beach in Calvi, this is a nice area to visit at the end of the day before having dinner. It has a view to the beach and the inlet where you could see a lighthouse. The lighthouse is called Phare de la Revellata which I highly recommend to have a walking trip.

if you visit the citadel, follow the numbers indicating a "guided" tour. You get to see all of it without having to constantly check your maps

Visiting the citadel offered a great view both to the port and the sea along with the rocky seaside.

Worth a visit for the views alone. A short walk up the hill from the old port, but worthwhile for the views from the terrace
