We were crossing from Corsica to Sardinia and had a few hours to kill in the area. The Citadel is quite small but still nice - there are an awful lot of restaurants where you can take advantage of the spectacular views across the sea....More

The place is quite impressive and the view from the opposite cliff really stunning. The walled city is interesting with a lot of picturesque views. One advice: better go in the morning when the light is on your back and gives the better effect.

Amazing Citadel surrounded by an astonishing nature. It’s a very crowded attraction but it worths the visit.

We went all the way up in the citadel for the view. The water is so clear and the white cliff is beautiful to see and check out! Definitely recommend everyone to go to this town for the sightseeing!

I can understand why people would want to live here and why it was used as a fortress. The walled city is amazing surrounded by huge cliff faces and a beautiful harbour. When you get off the ferry from Sardinia, you literally walk into a...More

Bonifacio Citadel was one of the reasons I wanted to go to Corisca and it was well worth the arduous drive from Ajaccio. You have to be in good shape to see everything, but at least you can burn off the calories from the great...More
