In the far south of Corsica nestled against its white cliffs, the unique city of Bonifacio is reflected in the transparent turquoise waters of the Mediterranean. The upper part of Bonifacio and the heart of the city - the medieval citadel so beloved of the islanders - offers pleasant historical walks with stunning panoramic views. Its beautiful fortress is built on a site that is as impenetrable as it is impressive: a limestone peninsula, 150 m wide and 200 m long, whose settlement can be traced back to the Neolithic period. In 1195, the Genoese colonised this unique site. With its cliffs, legendary staircase, labyrinth of old stone buildings and unexpected views, this gem of a city is a fascinating mix of wild untamed nature and Corsican culture. From an environmental point of view, Bonifacio is one of the most protected sites on the island.
Bonifacio's charm can also be found in the heart of the city. On market days (Tuesday and Friday mornings), sample the variety of products made by local artisans; there are also stalls selling clothing, accessories and seasonal items. And don't forget the shops, restaurants, cafés, harbour, etc. A thousand and one attractions await you in this picturesque and lively little town whether its day or night.
