An interactive tour of one of Corsica's most beautiful sites... the Citadel of Calvi. You are invited to explore this Genoese citadel which stands on the water, gazing out to the snow-covered mountains which cast their shadow over the sea.

For adults in complete freedom ...
You can visit the upper town quite freely; it is an inhabited part of the city.

However, the Calvi-Balagne Tourist Office has been offering an audio guided tour of the Citadel for several years using new generation players, very easy to use.

They are available in 4 languages ​​- French - English - Deutsch - Italiano - and are accompanied by a map listing the 11 landmarks of the course.
Traditional music punctuates the visit and embellishes the history of this Genoese fortress and the characters who have contributed to its notoriety (Christopher Columbus, Admiral Nelson ... Laurent Giubega, Napoleon's godfather) and make the story alive and moving.

The system offers complete autonomy to the user, who, walking along the cobblestones of history, can also indulge in some lounging.


Free access. Audioguided tour price: €8/adult
Audioguides are available at the marina offices from late September to early June, and in the citadel offices (under the entrance porch) from early June to late September.
