This is a charming and relaxing spot for a stroll. Lots of boats, restaurants, bar and cafes. Lots of beautiful houses to look at. Some not so beautiful but undergoing renovation. A lively area worth visiting.

Typical of most little European ports but this has wonderful back drop of mountains and medieval village. The citadel overlooks.

wandered the narrow streets on a morning and found delightful material for photo memories. It's a must see in Bastia.

The best views of the port are from the upper part of the old town. Amazing vista's of the old town and port from the park above the harbour. On a sunny day the views are next level.

This is a very attractive area with lots of restaurants and cafés as well as the marina with an interest of its own. At weekends there are social and market activities close by.

This is no dramatic port, but just down from the citadel (museum) this little harbour is a pleasant place to have a drink or three or perhaps lunch. It's a little touristy but not too bad (I write in late August) and the place is...More
