in Olbia there is something to see. In particular, a lot of ancient buildings, churches or - the "highlight" of the town - archaeological excavations, narrating about the rich history of this area in ancient times: nuragi and "graves of giants". Finds made there can be seen in the magnificent Archaeological Museum.
To the category of "antiquities" also include Punic necropolis, ancient city walls and Roman baths. Of the "medieval" attractions notable Romanesque church of granite San Simplicio. The 17th century was marked by the charming St. Paul's Cathedral.
archipelago Maddalena (now - the national park). The archipelago consists of several large and small islands, but it costs at least one - Budelli (known for bringing it to the pink beach).
The archipelago of La Maddalena, consisting of 60 islands and islets near the north-eastern coast of Sardinia, in 1996 became the island's first national park. Granite and shaly islands of the archipelago have particularly favorable geological and marine natural conditions associated with the lack of significant changes that could have a negative impact on the natural environment of the island. The park covers an area of 50 square meters. km and stretches along the coast for 180 km.
On the hills framing a deep blue bay 25 km to the northeast of Bonifacio, is the small town of Porto-Vecchio, considered one of the most beautiful ports in Europe.
Founded in 1539 as the second Genoese citadel on the east coast of Corsica (after Bastia), nowadays this picturesque port has turned into a major tourist center, attracting first and foremost wealthy Italians. However, in addition to a well-preserved fortress and a small historical core with its winding streets, there are almost no historical monuments in the city itself.
But around it, the real expanse for a demanding tourist is the green forests surrounding the small town of Zonza, and the statue of Notre Dame des Nigues on Mount Bavella (1218 m), the spectacular mountain range of Ospedale, archaeological complexes in Casteddo d'Araggio (Castedo d'Araggio, 12 km north of the city) and many picturesque mountain sites.
Beach tourists attract the beautiful shores of the Palombaggia gulfs (Palombaggia, the most beautiful beach on the island), Porto-Vecchio and Santa Giulia. Excellent beaches are also near Pinarello (Pinarello) and San Cipriano (San Cipriano).

The birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte. This is the main tourist resource of the city, which is the center of the department of South Corsica and at one time was "appointed" by Napoleon as the capital of the entire island. The Napoleonic heritage is emphasized in every way, but among the people its cult is not as strong as one might think - in the traditional Corsican perception, strangely enough, it is more likely that the Frenchman. Napoleon's birthday is celebrated on August 15, but much more Corsicans are proud of the fact that in Ajaccio in 1984 the pop singer Alize was born.
Ajaccio is located on a small peninsula on the shore of the bay and produces from the first approach the impression of the Cote d'Azur branch - the same rough terrain, towering immediately outside the city of the mountain (only here they are pink) and houses on the terraces.
In the south of Corsica is a magnificent isolated peninsula, composed of dazzling white limestone. On its southwestern coast, on a long and narrow cape, lies the most photogenic and colorful city of Corsica - Bonifacio (Bonifaciu), with the promenade of which is already visible Italian Sardinia.
Crowned by white sea cliffs, the old town of Ot-Wil is a tangled network of narrow streets with high mansions of clearly Genoese style, crowning the deep cleft of the natural harbor. For many centuries, this excellent harbor at the entrance to the stormy strait of Bonifacio has sheltered thousands of ships, and these days has become a chic yacht parking lot, where ships from all over the world can be found. The city is quite isolated from the rest of Corsica and still retains its distinctive architectural style with a clear Renaissance influence, its dialect more similar to the Italian Ligurian, and its rhythm of life. Despite the exorbitant prices, crowds of tourists (especially in August) and the apparent commercialization of everything and everything (completely untypical for Corsica, by the way), Bonifacio clearly deserves at least a small stop, because this old Genoese republic can offer visitors and many historical monuments.
