Corsican Tales and Legends Walking Tour

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from $99 USD / Adult
Trace the storied history of Bastia on a guided walking tour that provides an intimate and insightful look at this somewhat conflicted Corsican town. As you stroll along, your guide will regale you with tales of Bastia’s early days, founded by the Genoese in 1380. Explore the great citadel perched on the port’s easily defensible shores and hear stories of the Catholic church which to this day exerts a powerful influence over locals. However, you’ll also glimpse the other side of Bastia, brimming with mystics, visionaries and mediums. Visit some of the town’s purportedly haunted landmarks and learn about the superstitions still held fast by local residents. During your walk, you’ll break at a café for a tasting of local cheeses and meats, paired with tantalizing Corsican wines. There’s no finer way to connect with the people and places of Bastia than by taking the time to explore on foot.
  • Join a local guide for an eye-opening walk through the historic streets of Bastia, founded in 1380.
  • Explore the town’s ancient citadel, Terra Nova, built upon the rugged rocks of the coastline.
