The entire city is worth seeing if you have time, so consider going for a stroll across the pebble and sandy beaches, head down the bustling streets and take in the local culture and architecture. On top of the amazing scenery all over the city, there are also several important landmarks worth visiting whilst in town.

The Vieux Port

The Vieux Port (or Old Port) is a beautiful part of the city. The best views of the harbour can be found in Jardin Romieu Park at the top of a twisting set of steps leading up from the waterfront. The Old Port is worth taking in from the ground level too. The old, tall buildings and large, expensive boats and yachts docked in the harbour make for fantastic surroundings as you stroll through the port at your own pace.

The Museum of Ethnography

Bastia’s Museum of Ethnography traces the intriguing history of Corsica throughout the ages, from pre-Roman times to the modern era. The museum is situated within the 14th century Governor’s Palace and is an excellent excursion idea for visitors hoping to learn more about the history and heritage of the French island.

The Citadel

Bastia’s historic citadel was constructed from the 15th to the 17th century as a defensive structure for the city’s Genoese masters. Visiting this crumbling stronghold and observing the landmarks within, such as the Palais des Gouverneurs and the museum it contains is an essential part of staying in Bastia.
