Nothing special about the citadel. A long way up. But it worth for a panoramic views you can see from the top.

Fantastic citadelle, very unique experience.. one of my highlights in Corsica. We booked the petit train and had concession entry to the musee and citadelle. We had decided to take a break from touring and spend the day in Corte... this was totally worth it.....More

A great museum is included in the admission price but the citadelle itself is quite ordinary. There are no information boards so it is difficult to gain a lot from the visit

Well worth the climb for a panaramic vista of Corte and surrounding area. Some ongoing re construction to avoid.be sure to go down into the dungeon.

Nice views of Corte and the entire valley around Corte. Best to visit early morning or late afternoon to avoid the crowds.

The steep steps lead up to a viewing area giving all round aspects, ranging from the spectacular mountains on one side, to the roof tops of the historic old town, with the Citadel buildings towering above.

Great views from top of town. Lots of steps up to the top but well worth it for the views. Nice eateries on the way up as well.

The citadelle itself was nothing special. Good thing that small entrance fee also includes access to the historical museum of Corte. The old town surrounding the citadelle is however very quaint.

Hi, Daren, sorry, I'm reading your question only now. No, in my opinion, it is'nt enought to see spending one day. In two hours, you see everything. Good trip.
