Bastia - Highlights
One of the largest cities on the island, Bastia is an established commercial center and chief port of Corsica. Located near the base of the Cap Corse, Corsica is lying between the mountain and the sea. Situated about 22 miles away from the Northern tip, 31 miles west of Elba, an Italian archipelago, and 56 miles away from mainland Italy, Bastia is a major port of the Island of Corsica. In geographical terms, Bastia is distinguished by its location between the mountain and the sea. The city is settled on the eastern front of the Serra de Pignu, a picturesque mountain. This 960 meters high mountain and other hills shape up the Cap Corse. The unique landscape resulted in major commercial development on the coastal band, stretching for not more than 1 mile.
The sea port becomes an undisputed part of the regional economy. In addition to the older port, the island includes two new ports. While the new ports are exclusive commercial hubs, the old port acts as a natural shield, besides being commercially oriented. The old port, though relatively less economically viable, continues to be a huge hit among tourists. The port area charms visitors with its natural beauty and historical significance. As the port remains full of tourism activity, several restaurants, bars, cafes are located just on the docks, catering to tourists and as well as natives.
The commercial port is located towards the northern part of the island. An economic asset, the port is truly a growth engine of Bastia. While the business oriented port may be of no interest to you, the Saint-Nicholas Square, located just near the port, is going to make you love Bastia more than ever. The square is known for its restaurants, nightclubs, bars, and shopping facilities. Other nearby places include – Toga Marina, an ultimate destination to enjoy variety of water sports, Boulevard Paoli Street, Avenue Maréchal Sebastiani, Museum of Corsica, Palace of the Genoese Governor, and the 16th century Bell Tower.
