We had the opportunity to visit Bonifacio, as our cruise ship moored off the entrance to the harbour, and as it was fine and a calm sea we took the tender to the shore. We were not pleased to have to walk the whole length...More

We visited the Bonifacio Citadel while waiting for the ferry back to Sardinia. Interesting and beautiful old graves. Lots of history with great shots for photography! It was a pleasant walk from the ferry terminal. This visit was actually in late September 2017.

We wandered through the citadel area late in the afternoon and again mid morning and was delightful. As we were leaving towards midday it was so crowded. It’s fine if you like crowds but otherwise aim for early or later in the day. You can...More

We visited this city a few times this holiday. It's the most beautiful in the evening when all the lights are giving everything a nice romantic touch. We took the train down by the harbour for only 5 euro's and it was definitely worth it!

The small streets behind the citadel walls are now mostly given over to tourist shops and restaurants, but the streets are still beautiful and full of character. Well worth visiting! We continued walking west to the end where you can overlook the waterway and watch...More

Amazingly beautiful cemetery, worth a peep! I’m not normally a fan of visiting cemeteries but this one is definitely worthy! The white colors of the tombs against the Mediterranean blue sky are just wonderful!

parts of the city would be but not all and getting up there would be difficult unless they let you drive up with your special sticker.
