Calvi is a small port town located in the northwest of Corsica. The Genoese citadel, built in the 13th century on a promontory jutting out into the sea, creates a emotional landscape. There is also a beautiful beach nearby, facing the Mediterranean Sea, which attracts many tourists in the summer.
The island of Corsica is famous for its resorts, but it is also characterized by its varied topography, including steep mountains and cliffy coasts. One of the highlights of the island is the towns that are integrated with the terrain. The fortresses that were built during the Genoese rule in the Middle Ages to guard against enemy invasion are now impressive symbols that welcome tourists.
