We ate and drank here and it's just a charming port to sit and watch the world go by in. Nice walking the walls to the lighthouses to watch the boats go by.

Surrounded by old buildings some in very poor condition. Nice area for a drink or dinner in the evening. Expensive area though. A must see

A nice clean harbour with lots of boats and plenty of cafes and restaurants with great views. A good place to spend time if waiting for a ferry.

Great spot for exploring with lots of bars and restaurants! We enjoyed exploring the area with its squares and warren of tiny streets! Bastia is a city which is multifaceted and the old town is a lovely way to spend a few hours!

This is a charming and relaxing spot for a stroll. Lots of boats, restaurants, bar and cafes. Lots of beautiful houses to look at. Some not so beautiful but undergoing renovation. A lively area worth visiting.

Typical of most little European ports but this has wonderful back drop of mountains and medieval village. The citadel overlooks.

wandered the narrow streets on a morning and found delightful material for photo memories. It's a must see in Bastia.

We rented a car from the airport but I think there is a car hire near the ferry terminal I think it is ' Europcar' which is who we used when we rented from the airport
