Calvi, an authentic Corsican city

Today, why not cruise around the North of Corsica and discover the beautiful city of Calvi and its surrounding area. This town, with its wealth of historic, cultural and natural heritage, promises you an unforgettable holiday, steeped in authenticity! A jewel on Corsica’s Western coast, Calvi is an enchanting city.

Just a little stroll through its paved alleyways will be enough to convince you! Don’t miss the fortified Genoese citadel reflecting Calvi’s history. As the capital of Balagne, the town is also particularly well steeped in art and culture, demonstrated by long-running spectacles such as Calvi on the Rocks, the Calvi Jazz Festival, the Festival du Vent (Wind Festival), and the Rencontre d’Art Contemporain de Calvi (Discovering Calvi’s Contemporary Art).
