“Amazing city, even if clearly a very touristic place”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

A "don't miss" small city., worth the short climbing from the port (where is easier to park, even for free, if you do one of the boat trip, apparently). Walk also towards the cemetery, a bit farer from the crowd, with its special atmosphere and nice view down to the sea.

“wonderful place”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Stairs in the stone Escalier du Roy d'Aragon + museum Bastion de l'étendard + sea tour of the bay made a terrific day in Southern Corsica. History ans Nature are united in this unique place in the world. Magical memory.

“A beautiful place”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

We travelled from Ajaccio to see this beautiful town and found it a brilliant place to visit with the old town, shops and the steps. It was fairly busy, but not to cause any problems but this is to be expected of any pretty and historic town. Definitely a place to visit.

“Splendid”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

Really worth the visit. We liked the most the underground of the bastions (the ticket 2,50 euros/person), where once guard soldiers stayed. Didn't try the stairs for the lack of time. A good idea is to rent an audio guide (5 euros; different languages) - you must leave your ID in pledge - you'll need at least 1,5 - 2 h to visit. The main church was closed because of the renovation works. A nice souvenir for women is "the eye of St. Lucy" - you can find one for every taste. A souvenir for men could be a typical Corsican knife "vendetta" - starts at 20 euros. I want to go back!
