Enjoy the beautiful view onto the arrival and departure of various ferries while sipping a cup of coffee or lunch in one of the many restaurants on the square.

Fresh from the Livorno ferry, we had a drink here in one of the many cafes as our introduction to Corsica. The autumn colours of the plane trees contrast with the ships docked in the adjacent harbour.

Large Piazza opposite the ferry port for France and Italy. Great for a large range of restaurants and bars, a weekly market too.

Probably one of the busiest places in Bastia worth looking around if only to watch the Ferry Boats coming and going.

This square is close to the marina and harbour in Bastia. The little fountain with the girl's statue in front is very picturesque and you can take quite a few pictures here. If you are hungry, loads of restaurants around the square itself.

A nice place to wander around before you find a nearby spot to enjoy your lunch or dinner. It's worth a look as it's one of the first spots you encounter when you arrive from the bus or ferry.
