Top towns and villages in Corsica

Corsica stretches over 8,680 m². Known as the Ile de Beauté, it is a small area packed with must-see places. 
 
- Ajaccio: the capital of Southern Corsica is located to the west of the region. This is where Napoléon Bonaparte was born and is a cultural hotspot on the Mediterranean shores. Top attractions include Corsican specialities from the central market, Bonaparte’s house, the Fesch museum and the Sanguinaires islands off the coast of the town. 
 
- Bastia: another major Corsican town and the capital of Haute-Corse, Bastia lies in north-east Corsica, at the base of Cap Corse. This authentic old town with its narrow streets and its citadel proudly dominates the Mediterranean Sea. Don't miss its old port, a truly charming place. 
 
- Calvi : also known for its citadel, Calvi is located in the north of Corsica in the Balagne region. Stroll through the heart of its narrow cobblestone streets, then head to the harbour to enjoy a meal against a backdrop of the Mediterranean and the surrounding mountains.   
 
- Porto-Vecchio: this time head further south. This charming town with its citadel and its Genoese gate is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in Corsica, like Palombaggia beach.  
 
- Bonifacio: even further south is Bonifacio, a town that proudly dominates the Mediterranean with its magnificent white limestone cliffs. It’s hard to resist the charm of this town with its port, its narrow cobblestone streets and its King of Aragon staircase that runs from the old town to the sea. 
 
- Sant’Antonio: this village sitting at the heart of the mountains is located south of Calvi. Sant’Antonio is a medieval village that has preserved its authenticity with its stone houses and cobblestone streets. Beyond the natural charm of this town, which is 12 centuries old, you will be captivated by the view of the surrounding nature and the bay of Calvi.
