Lovely old medieval streets; great views of the chalk cliffs; Restaurants overhanging the see. Really lovely spot. I got up early and went exploring when the town was just starting to wake up - great way to beat the crowds

Amazing old town! Exellent sea view with many restaurants and bars. Narrow beautifull streets. Price is too high!

It was a real surprise to discover the old citadel. Little alleys, lots of shops and restaurant that serve local food. Eating breakfast on a balcony on top of the cliffs: clear sea, the breeze... so relaxing and enjoyning

I didn't expect to enjoy this as much as we did, but the Citadel was beautiful, we loved walking through, exploring all the streets and we even found the most amazing playground for our toddler to play on. Which is a rarity in Corsica.

Huge citadel with amazing views of the ocean. In summer weather, one must take a hat to walk around!

Not sure if I'm too late, we've just returned from Bonifacio, we were there for 5 days and loved it. We drove to Porto Vecchio, it took approx 50 minutes. It's an easy drive and the roads are good. You can park in one of the... More
