Located in the northern area of the island of Corsica, Bastia is a French city known for its authentic Corsica experience. This old port town presents a blend of ancient and modern architecture, and more than 700 years of history makes it a popular holiday destination for tourists wanting to dig into the true soul of the island.

The Musee de Bastia is one of the most visited places in town. The museum carries a selection of wonders highlighting the local art, history, geography and tradition over the centuries. Meanwhile, the Corsica Museum of Ethnography, housed in what was once the governor’s palace, is another centre of attraction for Bastia visitors. The museum highlights folk traditions and contemporary arts, and on the lower levels, visitors can tour old jail cells beneath the palace.
Oratoire de la Confrerie de Sainte Croix, which dates back to the 15th century, is another popular attraction to enjoy while visiting Bastia. The historic church and its eye-catching bell tower can be seen throughout the new port and provides a great view of the old port. Back on the streets, visitors will find that new and old worlds stand side by side in Bastia, offering distinctly different takes on Corsican life. The newer side of town boasts colourful and luxurious resorts complete with fun water activities, while the old city remains home to remnants of Corsica’s past.
