What to see in Bastia
You will hardly get tired of visiting the stands of Salone del cioccolato, but in case you are satiated with tastings, take a break to visit Bastia. The city center is full of places of great historical and cultural interest, first of all the Citadel. If the autumn weather allows, it is recommended to visit at least one of the beaches of Bastia, in particular that of Nonza, a charming village at a few kilometers from the city. Among the excursions to do in the day, the perimeter of Capo Corso, better known as “the finger of Corsica”, is highly recommended.
