What a spectacular harbour to sail in to. The marina fees for one night are a reasonable 44€ for one night for our 39ft yacht. We are surrounded by yachts like ours , superyachts, huge motor launches and people from all over; but mainly French...More

Views as you walk around the citadel are truly amazing, despite taking many good quality photographs, the photos can never replace the real thing. All of Corsica has the wow factor and the citadel will not disappoint

If you want to get to Bastion de l'Etendard, it's about 5 EUR per person. This is the only place where you have to pay, but the views worth it.

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

You book guides at the tourist office. I don't know how to book in advance. There are several good restaurants (near Aragon's stairway) with views over the sea, but not as many as you would expect. Most restaurants are... More
