Seasonnal direct flight with Hop! Air France from 24 June to 2 September
Corsica's main port, Bastia or La Bastiglia (the bastion), is best savoured slowly like a glass of Gioielli, the famous wine of Cap Corse, to its northeast. The timeless Bastia is a registered City of Art and History that also serves at the departure point to the natural wonders of Cap Corse, Corte, and Calvi.
Once a small port called Porto Cardo, Bastia owes its name to the Genovese who built a bastion there, the current citadel. Today, the economic capital of the Island of beauty is a prosperous city served by many airlines and ferries. Bastia has maintained its authenticity, with its old steep streets that lead down to the harbour, while also adapting to accommodate the influx of tourists drawn to its beaches and backcountry.
