Views as you walk around the citadel are truly amazing, despite taking many good quality photographs, the photos can never replace the real thing. All of Corsica has the wow factor and the citadel will not disappoint

For the price of entry it is well worth going, especially for the views of the cliffs and of the port. But also, inside as you descend some short stairs, you learn so much of 5e history of the citadel, of Bonifacio and it’s inhabitants....More

Gorgeous views out over all sides of the city, down to the marina and then around to the sea and across to Sardinia on a clear day

Bonifacio is very pretty from its citadel to its harbour. Nice day strolling around town. Worth spending a day or even half a day.

We took a boat from Sardinia and spent a wonderful morning exploring the old town - it’s worth the long climb up the hill for th specatular view alone .

Despite a day of torrential rain, walking through the Citadel was most interesting in understanding the history of the development of Bonifacio. it always amazes me how such impenetrable fortresses were constructed in such challenging surroundings. It is well worth a visit to help fully...More

If you want to get to Bastion de l'Etendard, it's about 5 EUR per person. This is the only place where you have to pay, but the views worth it.
