Bastia is the second-largest city in Corsica, situated at the foot of Cap Corse and the Eastern Plain’s wide sandy beaches. Everywhere you turn, its Genoese origins are palpable. In the heart of the city, take in the atmosphere of Saint-Nicolas Square where cafe terraces sit under the protective shade of the trees and step back in time in the historic district of the citadel, home to the Governors’ Palace and its golden walls. From the baroque chapels and the Port of Toga, to Paoli Boulevard and the restaurants of the Old Port, Bastia holidays are full of opportunities to immerse yourself in the local culture.
Start your day by watching a watercolour sunrise over the silhouette of Elba, lying just on the horizon – before diving into the rest of your day and enjoying the beauty Bastia has to offer.
