Spent an amazing day exploring Corte and its surroundings in September 2016. Simply stunning town which seems to be perched on the top of a rock. Worth the climb up to the belvedere and around the old town. Enjoyed walking around the town and had...More

Great to go in the morning (we did it in the afternoon and it was too hot to climb! We did to the tower and viewed the Citadel from there. Stunning views of the whole valley and city of Corte!

Visit the Citadelle because of the sights. You have good views over the Corte City and over the mountains.

The museum is great to visit - not too much in English, but great views from the Citadel, and a modern airy museum

If you decide to visite Corte, you have to see the Citadelle. But don't wait a big place or something extraordinary. I'd classificated it as normal.

There is a nice museum inside the building, a walk on the walls of the fortress offers beautiful views on the scenery that surrounds the city of Corte. Must be visited and ended with more or less romantic dinner in Corte :)

While there is not that much to see in Corte the Citadelle is worth the climb. It was great to get a sense of the center of Corsica which is so different from the coast.

Entrance to the citadel is through the museum. Once past its modern entrance you can walk round the ramparts and then up some steep steps to the Tower. Evocatively ramshackle and beautifully unimproved with terrific views over the town and mountains. Museum worth a quick...More

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.
