Top things to See and Do in Calvi
The main attraction in Calvi is its citadel, which offers beautiful panoramic views across the city. Built at the time of the Genoese occupation, Calvi houses some pretty monuments and in particular La Poudrière, Saint Antoine oratory and Christopher Colombus’ house. Within the fortress, the Cathedral of Saint Jean-Baptiste, built in the 13th century, features beautiful items of ancient art. Finally, quite far out of the city-centre but it is our favourite, the chapel Notre-Dame-de-la-Serra offers a breathtaking view of the Gulf of Calvi!
If you are looking for restaurants, bars and boutiques, go for a stroll in the street ‘Clémenceau’ and along the ‘Quai Landry’, which is a beachside walkway bordering the port Xavier Colonna all the way up to the Tour de Sel (Salt tower). This tower dates back to 1897 and used to be a watchtower as well as a salt warehouse.
Set sail and explore some wild places... First of all, the Bay of Girolata offers an exceptional natural site dominated by a Genoese Tower. The Corsican coastline is dotted with these towers dating back from the 16th century, a time when the island belonged to the Republic of Genoa. This bay is a highly sought-after place of anchorage among pleasure boaters. You will then be able to go around the Nature Reserve of Scandola. Finally, La Revellata peninsula (40km long) offers a wild and inhospitable coastline, which is perfect for pleasure boaters. You will be able to enjoy its small coves, fine sand and crystal-clear waters in privacy. The Revellata lighthouse allows quick orientation as it stands at the tip of the peninsula.
A few events not to miss during your stop: the ‘Festiventu’ at the end of October, the jazz festival in July and finally, for party animals, the festival ‘Calvi on the Rocks’ in July, which sees DJs of the electronic music scene perform live sets on the beach for three nights in a row, guaranteed fun!
