About Bastia

Bastia is harbour town situated along Cape Corse.

Bastia was at one time the capital of Corsica, then Napoleon invaded and made his home town Ajaccio , which is now the new capital.

Bastia still retains a strong link with Italy. It has a Tuscan dialect still in use along the wild and unspoilt Cape Corse.

Drive and park your hire car, and then stroll through the old city know as Terra Vecchia. You will uncover sights of old Italy with narrow winding streets, lined with olive trees and whitewashed walls.

The old part of town is the heart of the city with many outdoor cafes and restaurants many with Italian sounding names.

The main sights are in and around St Nicolos Place. Stop at one the many outdoor cafes and enjoy the sea view, relax and recharge your batteries.

For shopping, visit Rue de Napoleon and nearby Pasval Paoli. Many Italian leather shops offer genuine items at budget prices.

Bastia is a rich town and owes its wealth to the new deep port designed by Napoleon's nephew. This deep port allows both tourist cruise ships and merchant ships to dock and unload.

Many leisure activities exist and you may hire motorboats, or even a yacht, at the nearby Toga marina north of Bastia.

Explore the unspoilt Cape Corse.

Bastia travel info

Many ferry and cruise ships stop at Bastia, enabling you to spend a few nights here before moving on to next port of call.

You cannot take you hire car off the island.

Corsica is blessed with a good road network and Ajaccio can be reached in less than 3 hours. We would recommend hiring a rental car allowing you explore all of the island. By Train: You can reach Bastia by train with the SNCF coming from Ajaccio, Calvi or Ile Rousse.

Rented CXMR Toyota Vigo Pickup in: Khon Kaen Airport

Overall Experience : very good
Supplier Service: Staff was very friendly but It took 40 minutes to collect the car. The paperwork is so slow even with 2 staff members. Secondly the GPS didn't work so they had to get another one in an other office (airport office didn't had a spare one). Finally after more than 1h30 we could leave the airport. It would be very nice that the collection of the car could go faster and that they test the GPS first.
Car: Clean and correct model. This model had a lot of scratches but with the zero exess policy we didn't mind.
