Cruise to the gateway to Corsica

Long regarded as the “gateway to Corsica”, the picturesque port of Bastia is located on the northeast corner of the French island, and dates back to Roman times. Nowadays, the sunny, charming streets of the Old Town, or Terra Vecchia, are home to lively markets, restaurants and cafés, rich culture, Baroque architecture, and breathtaking landscapes.

Venture beyond the town to see ancient Genoese ruins at Furiani, or to Ville-di-Pietrabugno for a spectacular view of Bastia, Cape Corsica and the islands of the Tuscan Archipelago. Be sure to visit the Genoese Governor’s Palace or take a simple stroll through Place Saint Nicholas to enjoy the region’s famous wines, while nature lovers will want to see the Lake Biguglia Nature Preserve and archeological site.
