Must see.

Easy stroll to the top to take in the best views. You can also navigate the 187 steps down to the sea if interested.

Go here out of tourist seasons and this beautiful place will be yours only. Bonifaccio has an incredibly beautiful setting but I can not imagine being there with the mobs in summer months.

Spend the day in Bonifacio along the harbor, walking the old town, the fort, the sea wall, the staircase to the sea, touring the high cliff walks for miles. Day and night, this town is incredible. The harbor is filled with some of the top mega yachts and is glorious spectacle with underwater lights and the tiny fish in sea.... More

Bonifacio was probably the nicest town that we visited in Corsica. A visit to the Citadel combines spectacular views with historical education.

Hey, we hadn't done our homework, okay. We had planned and prepared for time in Alsace, France and for time in Rome, continuing to northeast Italy. But Corsica, not much - we had to travel from southeast France to Rome and we had a week to do it, . . . . . so . . . . . .... More

A visit to the Citadele is good to make it with a guide that will give a good explanation of the history of the place since the Roman period. The city in evidence today was founded as a fortress by and subsequently named after Boniface II of Tuscany in 828. Most of the citadel postdates the 9th century or is... More

The Citadel is huge and the views from it are incredible. Get a tour guide or you'll never understand the citadel and its history. Be prepared for a lot of walking, but it's worth it.
