Bastia at a glance
Gateway to wild, unspoiled Cap Corse, Bastia is a capital in all but name, the second-busiest French port with café culture to match.
Café-lined Place St-Nicolas, looking immediately out to the Port de Bastia, is where locals meet, greet and commune.
You probably didn’t know
The French only gained domination of Bastia and the rest of Corsica from the Genoese in 1769 – the same year that Napoleon was born on the island.
