We had fairly low expectations having read some of the other reviews on here, but we were really pleasantly surprised - it is like a little hamlet up there, with restaurants and a couple of little shops, and of course wonderful views over Calvi. Our...More

When you drive into the city, from the beach or from the viewpoint at Notre dame de la Serra: the citadel looks always impressive. When you wander within the citadel area you also discover a lot of nice places, corners or viewpoints. Parking is easy...More

A bit of a climb but so worth it for the views! We went for the sunset and it was breathtaking. We also went to a concert at the cathedral which I highly recommend doing if you’re there on a Monday or a Thursday.

We walked up here in the early evening from our hotel. Really old and interesting place with squares and narrow alleyways..

Quite high up so the streets are a bit of a climb, but nothing too strenuous, well worth it for the views over Calvi and the bay. There is a great Pizza restaurant there, lovely guy who owns it. But if it's a special occasion...More

Not much there. There is no charge, but there are some great views from the top. Great view of the sunset.

Really enjoyed wandering round the streets and alley ways that form the Citadel. You can sense being back in the history of the place. I’d recommend using the map only to work out whether you’ve seen the key sights and then just go with your...More
