The arrival in Clavi was a spectacle. One goes far to spot its spectacular wall, but you soon realize the beauty that awaits you. Of Genevese origin, the city is perfectly preserved and right before your eyes. Walking through the streets, you can enjoy the spectacular views at the numerous intramural viewpoints. In short, it is a city that you can not miss on your visit to Corsica. Muuuuuuuch prettier than Ajaccio.
Like most Corsican cities, Ajaccio has a citadel built by the Genoese republic in four stages between 1492 and 1789. It’s hexagonal and composed of six bastions. It dominates the Gulf of Ajaccio, and played a defensive role in the city for many years. It’s unique because it’s open to the general public. For a long time, it remained under military rule. Once, a mysterious thief planned a heist of the citadel since it was rumored to contain a fortune during the transition from francs to euros. To get there, follow the beach of Saint François, located downtown. You’ll enjoy a wonderful view of the city and the turquoise sea. An incredible place!
