Dating back to the 16th century, the fortified port town of Porto Vecchio is now a fashionable Corsican resort destination. The Old Town district—with its cobblestone streets, charming buildings and ruins of the ancient citadel—features fashionable shops, boutiques and cafés, while Porto Vecchio’s modern marina offers ferry rides to Bonifacio and the Lavezzi Islands nature reserve, plus a variety of places to enjoy a local beverage harborside. Visit the Church of Saint Jean-Baptiste, the Bastion San Antonia, and the Porte Genoise Gate for panoramic views of the sea, mountains and surrounding valley, or enjoy an afternoon at one of Corsica's two most famous beaches, Palombaggia and Santa Guilia, located just south of Porto-Vecchio. As dusk settles, head to the Old Town’s Place de la République (main square) for its lively nightlife, bars and restaurants.
