Buy the combined ticket for the stairs and the fortress. It's worth. There is a lot to see inside, the amazing view of the harbour on one side and the sea on the other. Finally its a quiet place in contrast to the overcrowded citadel....More

having toured Corsica recently on a motorcycle, I was simply enthralled by this beautiful clifftop village over looking the Med with the island of Sardinia to the south of it. In my humble opinion it is one of the most stunning part of Corsica which...More

The entrance fee is only 2.5 euros which is good value. The site is large with excellent views of Bonifacio and surrounding waters from different viewpoints. There are interpretative signs about the site which give you a glimpse into the history of Bonifacio and its...More

There is a small charge to get in here but you wont regret it. Amazing views of the citadel and the surrounding area. Plenty of history about the fortification and just a really great attraction.
