These scenic stairs were built by Fransiscan munks to access a water source in a grotto by the sea. Very nice attraction to be done with sneakers or barefoot (slippers are not allowed). Beware the 187 stairs are high and steep (45d egrees),sometimes irregular.but absolutely worth it!

Very steep however there are handrails to help. I suggest only doing this if in good fitness levels as it's strenuous especially in the heat. You are required to wear hard hats due to the the way the staircase is carved, to ensure safety, however mostly fine unless you are very tall. It costs €5 pp (Sept 22).

Fun and original thing to do but steps are very steep and there are 170 something of them so you need to ensure you can make it down and back!

It is obligatory to wear a hard hat (supplied). When you get down to the walkway some of the cliff overhang is
quite low - and yes I did bang my head so was pleased to be wearing the hat!

The view itself is not really any different from above so you won't miss out if you decide its not for you.

Tickets are 4.50 euro - a good deal as also
admits you to the bastion which has some fabulous views as well as history of the town.

187 uneven and large steps down (and afterwards up again...) Quite spectacular way of getting down from the city to the sea. Costs a bit of money to provide for helmets (recommended if you are taller than 180 or so!).
Nice view of the cliffs to the spur of Bonifacio.

We read about this staircase before our visit to learn about the history and how it had been used in the past. A truly special place! The steps take your breath away both because of the stairs themselves carved into the stone but also from the magnificent views (also from the steps coming back up ;-) ). A suggestion... we took one of the boat tours first and saw the steps from the sea - it gave us a great perspective of what an immense undertaking hewing these stairs into the cliff must have been hundreds of years ago!

We descended the stairway at 9am on a Sunday.
There was nobody else around and we had an exceptionally good experience. Very good photo opportunities.
We were told to be very careful as the steps were pretty slippy from the rain.
Steps are fairly steep in places but overall it’s quite easy if you take your time.
Approximately 200 steps each way.
Definitely worth doing.

Recommend you have the short trip down these steps as the views are beautiful. The steps are very steep (45 degree angle) and quite deep - if you are unfit I would beware as they are quite a challenge.

The walk down and along the edge was fabulous. The steps and walkway have been kept in great condition and it is very safe. Walking back up the 189 steps will be challenging for some. Simply take your time it’s not a race and enjoy the views.
