The petit train was really useful in looking around Bastia fairly quickly. Regrettably didn't make too many stops along the way but was very interesting all the same. Quite a good commentary too.

Took this train for about an hour. The guide was quite interesting and really held our attention with his stories. It was a scenic ride with a 30' stop on the hill with the cathedral and quaint streets. Very informative and perfect for a short visit in Bastia.

If you are going to visit the upper part of the town then the train is very useful, you see the very narrow streets and old buildings. You get a running commentary on various buildings and at the top a guide takes over for a visit to the church before you retake the train back down to the old harbour.

There are a number of these petite trains in Corsica but this is the best. The commentary is provided by a fantastic guide who went to considerable trouble to give English descriptions to us, the only two English speakers on the train. It also gives you a chance to stop and walk around the citadel where led by the guide you are given insights into Corsican history and culture. Great value.

We took the 1 1/2 hour tour. The tram (not really a train) is comfortable and the tour is narrated in English. You get an excellent overview of lovely, picturesque Corsica. The tram makes 2 stops (10 to 15 minutes) at Cave Napoleon and at Sanguine Islands - 2 great photo ops. Well worth 10 Euro. They do have a 7 Euro 45 minute tour available also.
