What to see near the port of Bonifacio
Bonifacio is a city to be experienced and explored. Once you arrive near the port area, the aforementioned Petit Train will take you in no time at all to the heart of the Citadel, where you can admire in all their splendor the Porta di Genova, the church of Santa Maria Maggiore, the church of San Domenico, the marine cemetery and the Bastione dello Stendardo (the highest in France).
Not far from the fortress, that is from Piazza del Mercato and Piazza de La Manichella, you can enjoy a panorama that truly leaves you breathless: a real terrace overlooking nearby Sardinia. The ancient city is also characterized by a maze of narrow and pleasant streets.
You cannot say that you have been to Bonifacio if you have not faced the 189 steps (carved into the limestone rock) of the famous Staircase of the King of Aragon: the beauty of the cliffs and the crystalline sea will amply repay you for any effort.
For sea lovers we suggest a nice boat trip: from the port of Bonifacio numerous tourist boats depart that will take you to the discovery of some scenic beauties of southern Corsica, part of the Bocche di Bonifacio nature reserve. An exciting tour among jagged coasts, sea caves formed over the millennia (such as those of Sdragonato) and the suggestive islands of Lavezzi.
