Between the sea and the mountains
The perfect destination for lovers of idleness on the beach and seasoned sportsmen and sportswomen. The town of Porto Vecchio is separated into two: you will find the upper town and the port below. To enter the citadel, take the magnificent Porte Génoise gate. To discover the town, it is better to wander in the alleyways and open your eyes wide. You will end your walk by finding the church of St Jean Baptiste. For a panoramic view over the bay of Porto Vecchio climb upon the terrace of the Bastion de France history museum: the countryside will take your breath away!
If you need to reinvigorate yourself after a day’s visiting, go to the Plage de Santa Giulia beach. Being less busy than its counterpart resorts, it is the perfect place to “chill out” on a little wooden floating pontoon, which moves towards the sea.
