We decided to take a boat trip first, before the day got too hot, but actually there were seats in the shade on the boat. I wish that we had gone up to the town first, because by the time we got there, it was...More

As the title suggests and as most people have commented lots of steps here. Totally worth looking round and spending several hours here. Do the Escaliers du Roi Aragon or whatever it is called- lots of steps down a very steep set of stairs to...More

I would suggest driving to the top of the town and parking next to the cemetery and then wander down through the beautiful old narrow streets filled with charm. There are numerous restaurants , churches and different things to see

This amazing medieval village remains intact - it's out of a movie or storybook. If you are not in good condition or have difficulties walking, please take a cab. It's a steep hike to get to the top of the cliffs to the village. There...More

The top site in Corsica is Bonifacio. The parking can be crazy so go early or pay for parking with a boat trip. Worth doing. But the highlight is walking up to the Citadel and on to the cemetery. If you are lucky there will...More

Travelled by coach and ferry to Bonifacio from Alghero in Sardinia. Long day but worth it to see the lovely city of Bonifacio which is split into a harbour area and a citadel and old town up on the hill. Recommend taking the little train...More

We walked up to the citadel from the marina, a tough 15-20 minute walk, but well worth getting out of breath for! If the walk is too much, le petit train is €5 return! The citadel is amazing, small enough to cover in a couple...More

When we walked out to the citadel, it was very windy. But the views were tremendous and the old buildings and especially the cemetery are very interesting.

Better LOVE to walk steps, because there are lots of them! The old city is beautiful from within & without. Lots of neat little alleys, nook and crannies. Great cafes, shops and glorious views.

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
I've read a few posts where it is recommended to use a guide to see and hear about the citadel. Can anyone share who they used and how to contact someone. I also read that you can get a guide at the tourism office...is it as simple as walking in the day our ship arrives? I normally like to email ahead of time and get things liked this booked but if that's how it's done here, that's good to know. Arriving in May for a port call on Seabourn. I'd really enjoy a fantastic meal up there overlooking the ocean if someone can recommend a spot. Thanks all.

I did not use a guide but was walking around alone in the Citaldel, the little lovely town and port. Sorry that I can't be of help about a guide but this place is awesome. Very picturesque !! Loved it !!
