Bastia tourist information

where to go - what to see - what to do

Bastia is a busy and colourful port and the economic capital of Haute-Corse.  The Genoese government ruled from Bastia in the 15th century which was when the 'bastiglia' or fortress was built. 

A stroll around the old port with its 19th century Italian style buildings will remind you that you are on a Mediterranean island.  The Place St-Nicolas is the central hub with ferries coming and going to the mainland and Italy. 

If you can drag yourself away from Bastia's many churches, take a trip to Cap Corse - the beautiful peninsula that stretches north of Bastia.
