Not really something that you visit, but more so pass by. Located in the center of town and is surrounded by coffee shops and restaurants.

A nice clean harbour with lots of boats and plenty of cafes and restaurants with great views. A good place to spend time if waiting for a ferry.

Great spot for exploring with lots of bars and restaurants! We enjoyed exploring the area with its squares and warren of tiny streets! Bastia is a city which is multifaceted and the old town is a lovely way to spend a few hours!

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.

Staying near the ferry terminal, we asked our hotel desk where to eat and they recommended the old port (Le vieux port). It's a great walk through town or along the water from the terminal and there are a lot of dining options. We ate...More

We rented a car from the airport but I think there is a car hire near the ferry terminal I think it is ' Europcar' which is who we used when we rented from the airport
