Like many places this is a little train which takes you on a short circuit of the town. However, I’d strongly recommend you using this one to get to the citadel as it’s a bit of a climb otherwise, you know what they say let...More

The Petit Train was a nice way to go to the historic part of Bastia. The guide has plenty of personality and did his best to cater to all the different nationalities and languages by switching languages. He is clearly passionate about his city. The...More

There are a number of these petite trains in Corsica but this is the best. The commentary is provided by a fantastic guide who went to considerable trouble to give English descriptions to us, the only two English speakers on the train. It also gives...More

We took the 1 1/2 hour tour. The tram (not really a train) is comfortable and the tour is narrated in English. You get an excellent overview of lovely, picturesque Corsica. The tram makes 2 stops (10 to 15 minutes) at Cave Napoleon and at...More
