Bonifacio is known and recognized by its medieval heritage exceptional perched on a limestone cliff by the sea looking at the horizon in a delightful setting.

Things to see and do

A bastion of the sea: a history always on time. At the bend of a road reveals the rock of Bonifacio, imposing and protector. Imagine a knight through the door of Genoa 12 centuries old; discover a charming city, fascinating... but above all enchanting!

We do not visit Bonifacio, we abandon it and it is this unconscious spell that brings the visitor to stroll like a tightrope over the millennia walls steeped in history. this feeling so special we look in vain for what causes passing of Upper town to the navy, windy cliffs in the protective shadow of the citadel. narrow streets, neighborhood squares invite a leisurely stroll that will continue on the heights of the cliffs, dotted with plunging views of the lower city and its navy.
