Took this ‘tour’ from outside the tourism office as pleased to be advised in the tourist office that the tour had commentary in English. The CD of the tour had already started when we got on so none of commentary matched what was going on outside at all, it was quite hard to hear it anyway. We drove for about 9 minutes and suddenly the bus stopped in the middle of the road - were stopping here for 30minutes the ‘guide’ said - over there are 2 churches go have a look. We duly walked round citadel. The bus came back in 30 minutes as promised and then drove to the end of road approx 7 minutes and stopped. That was it!! Pretty shocked, only 7 euros but still amazed it’s described as a ‘tour’. The guides parting words were Bastia is a small town, go explore by foot!…

You should be ashamed of you even every time when you look in mirror! You are only a species of hypocrite !

Bastia is a real gem, particularly the old town. The night life is astonishing for such a small town. Little bands playing in the streets, packed restaurants and bars, music everywhere...

Bastia has an old town feel, very Italian with just a hint of French, which makes it interesting and kind of quaint. There are loads of places to eat around the old market square or the main harbor square. Prices we found to be fairly expensive, but if you look around you can find a few cheaper options (the crepe restaurant at the end of the main square was very reasonably priced and very nice food). There are no beaches in Bastia itself so you need to take the bus or hire a car (NB car hire is much cheaper at the airport than in Bastia, but beware there is very limited car parking in Bastia). The local buses are 2 euros each way and will take you to a stoney beach (not great) only 20 mins away. If you are looking for nice beaches you really need a car and drive down towards the south - the beaches are sandy and very pretty. We visited the vineyards on the bus, the Corsican wine is really good! The buses into the mountains are expensive 10euros each way and there aren't many, so whilst we did take the bus I would recommend going by car. Bastia is great for a short trip, plenty of little shops, bars and restaurants to keep you entertained, it's worth heading down south if you get the chance it's very pretty.…

Place St Nicolas is where the markets are held and special events. The area has loads of bars and restaurants and looks the place for a night out. The Tourist Office is at one end of the Place.
