Calvi, Corsica, France

1-800-845-1717

Awaiting Your Return From Shore

Sharply defined against a hazy backdrop of snow-capped mountains, Calvi's situation atop a promontory at the western end of a half-moon-shaped bay is a spectacular sight. Below, a finely drawn strip of red-roofed houses and spidery palm trees delineate the Basse-Ville (lower city), with its yacht-crammed marina.
  Perched above the marina is the Citadelle. The views are magnificent from its bastions. Below the Citadelle extEnd the elegant Quai Landry, lined with attractive restaurants and cafes.

Pier Information
 Guests will be taken ashore via the ship's tenders. It's a short walk to the coach parking area. Haute-Ville (upper town) can be reached on foot via a few steps. Taxis are in limited supply; they need to be called to the port.

Shopping
 Corsican handicrafts and wines are popular items. Rue Clemenceau is crammed with souvenir shops. Many shops close between 12:30 p.m. and 3.

Cuisine
 Fish restaurants in the marina area offer excellent seafood fresh from the bay. Less expensive eateries can be found in the upper town, specializing in Corsican cuisine.

Other Sights
 Exploring the maze of narrow streets in the upper town is a must.
 Cathedral Saint-Jean-Baptiste. The church houses the legendary Christ of the Miracles, a crucifix brandished at the marauding Turks in 1553.
 Columbus' Birthplace. In Rue de Fil a marble plaque marks the site where, according to local tradition, Christopher Columbus was born.
 Maison Pacciola. The house stands on the east side of the citadel along the ramparts; it is here where Napoleon reputedly spent a night in 1793.
