In 654 BC Phoenician settlers founded a port in the Balearic islands, calling it Ibossim. He became known among the Romans (who called him Ebusus) for his wine, marble and lead. The Greeks, who arrived in Ibiza during the Phoenician times, were the first to call the two islands of Ibiza and Formentera. With the Phoenician decline after the Assyrian invasions, Ibiza passed under the protection of Carthage. The island produced tint, salt, fish sauce (garum) and wool. After 400 a.C. Ibiza became a major center of traffic along the Mediterranean routes. During the Second Punic War the island was attacked by the two Scipioni brothers (Publio, father of the African, and Gneo Cornelio) in 209 BC. but he remained faithful to Carthage. Having completed the Carthaginian military fortune on the Iberian continent, Ibiza was used by the Carthaginian general Mago to gather supplies and men before sailing to Menorca and then to Liguria. Ibiza managed to negotiate a favorable treaty with the Romans that spared her further destruction and allowed her to survive with her Punic-Carthaginian institutions until the days of the Empire, when it officially became a Roman municipality. This survival made Ibiza an excellent place to study the Punic-Carthaginian civilization today, but it turned the island into a sleepy imperial outpost as it became more detached from the important trade routes of the time. The island was conquered by James I of Aragon in 1235.

Every morning instead, in the heart of Saint Tropez, one of the smallest fish markets in the world comes to life. It is located in the place aux Herbes just near the Fromagerie du Marché, a real triumph of French dairy products.

Culture

The first inhabitants of Saint-Tropez were the Greek settlers of Massalia, coming from Focea, who founded a small emporium, where they exchanged their goods with the native Gauls. The settlement took the name of Athenopolis and, with the arrival of the Romans, changed to Heraclea. In 1436 Renato di Provenza appealed to a Genoese nobleman, Raffaele di Garezzio, to re-create Saint Tropez. So sixty Ligurian families revive Saint Tropez, and as a counterpart the Duke undertakes not to make them pay taxes, a convention that will last for two hundred years. The new inhabitants fortify the country with mighty walls that can still be observed today. Over the years the country will be attacked several times, both by the Spaniards and by the British, and will suffer various devastations. Saint Tropez was at the center of the Allied landing in Provence in 1944 and was released on 15 August of that same year.  Although until the fifties it was a simple fishing village, it became a place of international fame for being the background of Piace a troppi, the 1957 film that launched Brigitte Bardot as the greatest European sex symbol, and for the famous song Saint- Tropez Twist by Peppino Di Capri.

The area was already inhabited in the 2nd century BC It is believed that the Ligurian tribe of the Ossibians created a settlement called Aegitna. Historians are uncertain about the meaning of the name. The area was a fishing village, used as a stopover between the islands of Lerino. In 69 d.C. it became the scene of a violent conflict between the troops of Otone and Vitellio. In the tenth century, the city was known as Canua. The name could derive from the word “cane”. Canua was probably a small Ligurian port, and later a Roman outpost on the Le Suquet hill, as evidenced by the Roman tombs found there. On the hill Le Suquet was erected in the eleventh century a tower from which you controlled the marshy territory in which today stands the city instead. Most of the ancient activities, especially the defense, took place on the islands of Lerino and the history of Cannes is the history of the islands.

Henry Brougham, first baron Brougham and Vaux, bought a plot of land at the Croix des Gardes and built the “Villa Eleonore-Louise”. His commitment to improve the living conditions of the area attracted the English aristocracy, which also built winter residences. At the end of the 19th century, several railway lines were completed as well as the railway station, which facilitated the arrival of tram lines. In Cannes, projects such as the Boulevard Carnot, the rue d’Antibes and the Carlton Hotel on the Promenade de la Croisette were realized. . After the closure of the Casino des Fleurs (hôtel Gallia), a luxury building was built for the rich winter clientele, the Casino Municipal next to the Albert-Edouard pier. The casino was demolished and replaced by the new Palace in 1979. With the twentieth century new luxury hotels arrived, such as the Miramar and the Martinez. The city was modernized with a sports center, tramways, a post office and schools. The city council had the idea of ​​hosting an international film festival just before the second world war: the first edition opened on 20 September 1946 and was held at the “Casino Municipal”.

Culture

According to recent discoveries, the island would have been home to caries tribes in the Neolithic. Tradition refers to populations of the leleges and then of Egyptians, Phoenicians and Cretans. The archaeological remains indicate that the island was inhabited by the ancient peoples of Ionia since the early part of the eleventh century BC. In the final phase of the Persian Wars (478-477 BC), Micono became part of the Lega delio-attica. With the Roman occupation of the Cyclades, Delos became a free port and nearby Micono lived a period of great short prosperity, concluded in 1988 BC. when Delo was razed to the ground during the First Mithridatic War. Under the Byzantine Empire the island was inserted in the province of Achaia and was then occupied by the Venetians. The construction of the parish church of Panaghía Paraportiani dates back to this period, then continued until the seventeenth century. Conquered in 1537 by the corsair Khayr al-Din Barbarossa, its territory was then subdued by the Turks until the revolution of 1821, in which the Myconians distinguished themselves as protagonists of the struggles for Greek independence (in particular the heroine Manto Mavrogenous, second some native historians of the island). Despite the liberation, famine and emigration led to a progressive depopulation of the Cyclades, halted only in the fifties by the growth of that tourist interest, first for Delos and then also for Micono, which over time became the main source of economic development.

In Greek mythology Micono is the seat of the mythical battle between Zeus and the Titans and its name derives from that of Mykons, Phoebus’ nephew.

Culture

The Balearics were inhabited since ancient times. The Romans, who called the city Palma soon became the hub of trade with the cities of the western Mediterranean. After the ups and downs of the Romans, the Vandals followed, followed by the Byzantines. Very little is known of this period even if mosaics are preserved in the Cathedral that were previously in an early Christian church. In the 18th century Palma became the capital of the Balearic province; moreover, with Charles III, trade was liberalized, favoring the economic recovery of the city. In the following century, the French occupation of Algeria made the trade routes in the Mediterranean safer, which until then the Turkish and Maghreb piracy, the bases of which were in North Africa, had made insecure. This led to an increase in trades and maritime traffic in the western Mediterranean, of which Palma de Mallorca benefited due to its geographical position.

The Cathedral of Santa Maria di Palma, also known as La Seu, is the most famous monument of the city. The place of worship was consecrated only in the nineteenth century, later it was subjected to works for the damage caused by an earthquake the facade was rebuilt. The work maintains its original Gothic structure; the interior, with three naves, is lit by a 12-meter rose window, one of the largest in the world by diameter. Next to the Cathedral is the Palazzo de l’Almudaina, the residence of the King of Spain when he visits the island. It was built by James II of Majorca on a project by Pere Salvà on the site of a previous Arab fortress. The building is Gothic but suffers from Arab influences. Inside you can admire the Flemish tapestries of the seventeenth century and the chapel of Santa Ana which has a beautiful Romanesque portal. The Belvedere Castle, located on a hill outside the city, is considered a rare example of a Catalan Gothic style castle with a circular plan. The building, surrounded by a moat, has three semicircular spurs and is connected, by a bridge, to a tower independent from the central body, the tower of the Homenaje, which in the intentions of those who designed it was to represent the last defensive bulwark in case of enemy attack.

How to get here

The airport of Palma de Mallorca is one of the most important in Spain. The traffic is mainly seasonal, linked to the tourist influx in the summer months, and the flights most of the time are charter. The airport is only 8 kilometers from the city and is connected to the center by a bus service that takes about 30 minutes to travel the route. Alternatively, you can use a taxi service that takes less time. For those who want to take a trip on the journey, the preferred vehicle is the car. To get to embark in Barcelona, ​​you will pass through some of the most beautiful places in Italy, France and Spain. The entry into France takes place through the Autostrada dei Fiori (A12) which crosses the Ligurian Riviera in a panoramic way. Entered in France, the 700 km of the E80 motorway will take you straight to Spain. Entered Spain, there are still 150 km to go to Barcelona. The “Mediterranean Autopista” takes you to Barcelona; near the city, follow the signs for the Ronda del Litoral and take the Port exit. The other ports of access to the Balearics are ports. There are no direct connections from Italy so you have to stop at Barcelona or Valencia and board them on the Transmediterránea or Baleària ships.

Gastronomy

At the traditional cuisine restaurants, there is no lack of sucking pig, Majorcan fried fish, a fine bullit de peix (Ibiza), lobster soup (Menorca), snails or ali-oli. Rice, stews and fish dishes make for exceptional menus, ideal to give yourself a treat after a relaxing siesta. However, the typical dish that always accompanies the visitor from island to island is pa amb oli (bread with oil). Its simplicity is achieved by combining the traditional brown bread in llesques (slices) with extra virgin olive oil from the islands. Ramallet tomato is spread over the bread and you can add whatever you like, from Mahón cheese to sobrasada (spicy pork sausage), as well as tuna or camaiot.

Culture

According to Pliny the Elder, the village of Portofino had during the Roman Empire the name of Portus Delphini, between Genoa and the Gulf of Tigullio due, perhaps, to the large population of these animals (dolphins) in the Gulf of Tigullio.Fin dall the Lombard period in the territory were the monks of the abbey of San Colombano di Bobbio; in Liguria they were located not only in Genoa but also in the east, in the area they had expanded from Pieve Ligure to Moneglia, with various abbeys, monasteries and cells, among which that of Comorga near Carasco and San Fruttuoso di Capodimonte.

In 1797 with the French domination of Napoleon Bonaparte the established municipality of Portofino returned from the December 2 in the Department of the Gulf of Tigullio, with capital Rapallo, within the Ligurian Republic.From 28 April 1798 with the new French regulations, Portofino returned to the III canton, capital of Santa Margherita, of the jurisdiction of Tigullio and from 1803 the main center of the II canton of the Gulf of Tigullio in the Entella Jurisdiction. Annexed to the First French Empire, from 13 June 1805 to 1814 it was included in the Department of the Apennines. In 1815 it was incorporated into the Kingdom of Sardinia, according to the decisions of the Congress of Vienna in 1814, and subsequently in the Kingdom of Italy from 1861. From 1859 to 1926 the territory was included in the V mandamento of Rapallo in the district of Chiavari of the then province of Genoa.

How to get here

Bonifacio, is on the Strait of the Bocche di Bonifacio that separates it from Sardinia. It belongs to the department of Southern Corsica and is the southernmost municipality of metropolitan France, thus excluding the overseas departments. The town is built around a deep bay similar to a small fjord surrounded by white limestone walls, inside which rooms of old houses and warehouses have been dug in time. Inside the fjord there is the port, mainly tourist, from which also ferries depart regularly connecting the city to nearby Sardinia with Santa Teresa di Gallura (SS) from which it is 12 km that are covered in an hour by ferry.

La Scalinata del Re is the route not to be missed during a stay in Bonifacio, as it represents one of the most beautiful spots of the Corsican town. Composed of almost 190 steps, if it goes all the way leads directly to the peak of the Mediterranean Sea, giving incredible images. Dedicated to the King of Aragon, it is presented as a staircase entirely built, evocatively carved into the rock wall. In addition to being an unmissable attraction for all nature lovers, the staircase is a monument to all effects, as it was built by the troops of the king of Aragon Alfonso V during the siege of Bonifacio, occurred in the fifteenth century, with the purpose to guarantee them the water supply. The staircase, in fact, led to a natural spring and allowed the soldiers to quench their thirst and, at the same time, to remain hidden and protected. The story behind the staircase is very interesting, as it is said that the construction work lasted only one night.

Culture

The place where now stands the city of Bonifacio was already inhabited approximately 6,500 years ago, a date suggested by the discovery of finds in a cave along its high cliffs. Later inside the bay, the settlement was occupied by Greek merchants and Roman soldiers; after them the city was long in the hands of the pirates of the Mediterranean Sea. Tradition states that the name was attributed only later, thanks to Boniface II of Tuscany who in 833 refounded a village here to defend against the Saracens raids. Inhabited by Tuscan settlers, for two centuries it remained under the control of the Maritime Republic of Pisa until, at the end of the twelfth century, it came under the control of the Republic of Genoa, which in 1490 expelled all the Tuscan colonists. A legend tells that the Genoese entered the city in 1195 taking advantage of a marriage and the state of intoxication of the population. Thanks to its strategic position both from the geographical point of view (possibility of control over the mouths of Bonifacio), and from the topographical (the old city is built on high cliffs overlooking the sea and is accessible only from inside the fjord), the Genoese made it become an impregnable fortress.

Among the major assaults one can remember the one carried by the king of Aragon in 1420, which lasted five months, during which a ladder was built along the cliff face to allow the water supply, called the steps of the king of Aragon. The city was conquered thanks to the deception of a Genoese emissary who allowed the garrison to return under the dominion of Genoa. Genoa, however, ceded it to France with the Treaty of Versailles of 1768. In 1793, Napoleon, when he was still a young officer, commanded the garrison of the fort for a few months. Coming to the present day, Bonifacio became a place of refuge for refugees fleeing from the Sardinian coasts; today it is instead a lively tourist town rich in history and enviable geographic location.

How to get here

The Figari-Sud Corse Airport, one of the four in Corsica, is located in the south of the island, about 25 kilometers from the city and 20 from Porto Vecchio.

Air traffic, of course, increases at the same time as the arrival of summer. The Port of the city is located within the fjord and is mainly tourist, however, here, daily ships arrive from Santa Teresa di Gallura, in Corsica. Porto Vecchio, is the nearest town, and has a port where ships from Marseilles and Toulon dock.

Palermitan cuisine, like all Sicilian cuisine in general, fully falls within the nutritional model of the Mediterranean diet and shows traces and contributions from all the cultures that have settled in Sicily over the last two millennia. Among the most famous dishes we find the caponata (used both as an appetizer and as a side dish), first courses such as pasta with sardines or baked anelletti and second courses such as sarde a beccafico or roast panato alla palermitana.

Palermo is famous for its pastry and in particular for the typical desserts that have as main ingredient the cream of ricotta: cannoli, cassate, apostle fingers. A curious and interesting aspect of the local cuisine is the widely used “street food”, which perfectly represents the tastes of the inhabitants of Palermo. Important to note that the chef from Palermo Francesco Procopio dei Coltelli is considered the father of ice cream, one of the most consumed and known desserts in the world.

In 654 BC Phoenician settlers founded a port in the Balearic islands, calling it Ibossim. He became known among the Romans (who called him Ebusus) for his wine, marble and lead. The Greeks, who arrived in Ibiza during the Phoenician times, were the first to call the two islands of Ibiza and Formentera. With the Phoenician decline after the Assyrian invasions, Ibiza passed under the protection of Carthage. The island produced tint, salt, fish sauce (garum) and wool. After 400 a.C. Ibiza became a major center of traffic along the Mediterranean routes. During the Second Punic War the island was attacked by the two Scipioni brothers (Publio, father of the African, and Gneo Cornelio) in 209 BC. but he remained faithful to Carthage. Having completed the Carthaginian military fortune on the Iberian continent, Ibiza was used by the Carthaginian general Mago to gather supplies and men before sailing to Menorca and then to Liguria. Ibiza managed to negotiate a favorable treaty with the Romans that spared her further destruction and allowed her to survive with her Punic-Carthaginian institutions until the days of the Empire, when it officially became a Roman municipality. This survival made Ibiza an excellent place to study the Punic-Carthaginian civilization today, but it turned the island into a sleepy imperial outpost as it became more detached from the important trade routes of the time. The island was conquered by James I of Aragon in 1235.

Every morning instead, in the heart of Saint Tropez, one of the smallest fish markets in the world comes to life. It is located in the place aux Herbes just near the Fromagerie du Marché, a real triumph of French dairy products.

Culture

The first inhabitants of Saint-Tropez were the Greek settlers of Massalia, coming from Focea, who founded a small emporium, where they exchanged their goods with the native Gauls. The settlement took the name of Athenopolis and, with the arrival of the Romans, changed to Heraclea. In 1436 Renato di Provenza appealed to a Genoese nobleman, Raffaele di Garezzio, to re-create Saint Tropez. So sixty Ligurian families revive Saint Tropez, and as a counterpart the Duke undertakes not to make them pay taxes, a convention that will last for two hundred years. The new inhabitants fortify the country with mighty walls that can still be observed today. Over the years the country will be attacked several times, both by the Spaniards and by the British, and will suffer various devastations. Saint Tropez was at the center of the Allied landing in Provence in 1944 and was released on 15 August of that same year.  Although until the fifties it was a simple fishing village, it became a place of international fame for being the background of Piace a troppi, the 1957 film that launched Brigitte Bardot as the greatest European sex symbol, and for the famous song Saint- Tropez Twist by Peppino Di Capri. The same Brigitte Bardot will buy a villa a few years later, which will be a call for the jet set of the French Riviera.

La Croix Valmer is appreciated for its jagged coastline that houses some beautiful beaches of the Var. In the northern part of the gulf, Sainte-Maxime has many arguments to attract tourists in search of authenticity. The view over the port of St-Tropez and its bell tower is magnificent. Port-Grimaud is a pleasant marina characterized by small internal channels.

The area was already inhabited in the 2nd century BC It is believed that the Ligurian tribe of the Ossibians created a settlement called Aegitna. Historians are uncertain about the meaning of the name. The area was a fishing village, used as a stopover between the islands of Lerino. In 69 d.C. it became the scene of a violent conflict between the troops of Otone and Vitellio. In the tenth century, the city was known as Canua. The name could derive from the word “cane”. Canua was probably a small Ligurian port, and later a Roman outpost on the Le Suquet hill, as evidenced by the Roman tombs found there. On the hill Le Suquet was erected in the eleventh century a tower from which you controlled the marshy territory in which today stands the city instead. Most of the ancient activities, especially the defense, took place on the islands of Lerino and the history of Cannes is the history of the islands.

Henry Brougham, first baron Brougham and Vaux, bought a plot of land at the Croix des Gardes and built the “Villa Eleonore-Louise”. His commitment to improve the living conditions of the area attracted the English aristocracy, which also built winter residences. At the end of the 19th century, several railway lines were completed as well as the railway station, which facilitated the arrival of tram lines. In Cannes, projects such as the Boulevard Carnot, the rue d’Antibes and the Carlton Hotel on the Promenade de la Croisette were realized. . After the closure of the Casino des Fleurs (hôtel Gallia), a luxury building was built for the rich winter clientele, the Casino Municipal next to the Albert-Edouard pier. The casino was demolished and replaced by the new Palace in 1979. With the twentieth century new luxury hotels arrived, such as the Miramar and the Martinez. The city was modernized with a sports center, tramways, a post office and schools. The city council had the idea of ​​hosting an international film festival just before the second world war: the first edition opened on 20 September 1946 and was held at the “Casino Municipal”.

According to recent discoveries, the island would have been home to caries tribes in the Neolithic. Tradition refers to populations of the leleges and then of Egyptians, Phoenicians and Cretans. The archaeological remains indicate that the island was inhabited by the ancient peoples of Ionia since the early part of the eleventh century BC. In the final phase of the Persian Wars (478-477 BC), Micono became part of the Lega delio-attica. With the Roman occupation of the Cyclades, Delos became a free port and nearby Micono lived a period of great short prosperity, concluded in 1988 BC. when Delo was razed to the ground during the First Mithridatic War. Under the Byzantine Empire the island was inserted in the province of Achaia and was then occupied by the Venetians. The construction of the parish church of Panaghía Paraportiani dates back to this period, then continued until the seventeenth century. Conquered in 1537 by the corsair Khayr al-Din Barbarossa, its territory was then subdued by the Turks until the revolution of 1821, in which the Myconians distinguished themselves as protagonists of the struggles for Greek independence (in particular the heroine Manto Mavrogenous, second some native historians of the island). Despite the liberation, famine and emigration led to a progressive depopulation of the Cyclades, halted only in the fifties by the growth of that tourist interest, first for Delos and then also for Micono, which over time became the main source of economic development.

In Greek mythology Micono is the seat of the mythical battle between Zeus and the Titans and its name derives from that of Mykons, Phoebus’ nephew.

Culture

The Balearics were inhabited since ancient times. The Romans, who called the city Palma soon became the hub of trade with the cities of the western Mediterranean. After the ups and downs of the Romans, the Vandals followed, followed by the Byzantines. Very little is known of this period even if mosaics are preserved in the Cathedral that were previously in an early Christian church. In the 18th century Palma became the capital of the Balearic province; moreover, with Charles III, trade was liberalized, favoring the economic recovery of the city. In the following century, the French occupation of Algeria made the trade routes in the Mediterranean safer, which until then the Turkish and Maghreb piracy, the bases of which were in North Africa, had made insecure. This led to an increase in trades and maritime traffic in the western Mediterranean, of which Palma de Mallorca benefited due to its geographical position.

The Cathedral of Santa Maria di Palma, also known as La Seu, is the most famous monument of the city. The place of worship was consecrated only in the nineteenth century, later it was subjected to works for the damage caused by an earthquake the facade was rebuilt. The work maintains its original Gothic structure; the interior, with three naves, is lit by a 12-meter rose window, one of the largest in the world by diameter. Next to the Cathedral is the Palazzo de l’Almudaina, the residence of the King of Spain when he visits the island. It was built by James II of Majorca on a project by Pere Salvà on the site of a previous Arab fortress. The building is Gothic but suffers from Arab influences. Inside you can admire the Flemish tapestries of the seventeenth century and the chapel of Santa Ana which has a beautiful Romanesque portal. The Belvedere Castle, located on a hill outside the city, is considered a rare example of a Catalan Gothic style castle with a circular plan. The building, surrounded by a moat, has three semicircular spurs and is connected, by a bridge, to a tower independent from the central body, the tower of the Homenaje, which in the intentions of those who designed it was to represent the last defensive bulwark in case of enemy attack.

How to get here

The airport of Palma de Mallorca is one of the most important in Spain.

Rice, stews and fish dishes make for exceptional menus, ideal to give yourself a treat after a relaxing siesta. However, the typical dish that always accompanies the visitor from island to island is pa amb oli (bread with oil). Its simplicity is achieved by combining the traditional brown bread in llesques (slices) with extra virgin olive oil from the islands. Ramallet tomato is spread over the bread and you can add whatever you like, from Mahón cheese to sobrasada (spicy pork sausage), as well as tuna or camaiot.

According to Pliny the Elder, the village of Portofino had during the Roman Empire the name of Portus Delphini, between Genoa and the Gulf of Tigullio due, perhaps, to the large population of these animals (dolphins) in the Gulf of Tigullio.Fin dall the Lombard period in the territory were the monks of the abbey of San Colombano di Bobbio; in Liguria they were located not only in Genoa but also in the east, in the area they had expanded from Pieve Ligure to Moneglia, with various abbeys, monasteries and cells, among which that of Comorga near Carasco and San Fruttuoso di Capodimonte.

In 1797 with the French domination of Napoleon Bonaparte the established municipality of Portofino returned from the December 2 in the Department of the Gulf of Tigullio, with capital Rapallo, within the Ligurian Republic.From 28 April 1798 with the new French regulations, Portofino returned to the III canton, capital of Santa Margherita, of the jurisdiction of Tigullio and from 1803 the main center of the II canton of the Gulf of Tigullio in the Entella Jurisdiction.

It belongs to the department of Southern Corsica and is the southernmost municipality of metropolitan France, thus excluding the overseas departments. The town is built around a deep bay similar to a small fjord surrounded by white limestone walls, inside which rooms of old houses and warehouses have been dug in time. Inside the fjord there is the port, mainly tourist, from which also ferries depart regularly connecting the city to nearby Sardinia with Santa Teresa di Gallura (SS) from which it is 12 km that are covered in an hour by ferry.

La Scalinata del Re is the route not to be missed during a stay in Bonifacio, as it represents one of the most beautiful spots of the Corsican town. Composed of almost 190 steps, if it goes all the way leads directly to the peak of the Mediterranean Sea, giving incredible images. Dedicated to the King of Aragon, it is presented as a staircase entirely built, evocatively carved into the rock wall. In addition to being an unmissable attraction for all nature lovers, the staircase is a monument to all effects, as it was built by the troops of the king of Aragon Alfonso V during the siege of Bonifacio, occurred in the fifteenth century, with the purpose to guarantee them the water supply. The staircase, in fact, led to a natural spring and allowed the soldiers to quench their thirst and, at the same time, to remain hidden and protected. The story behind the staircase is very interesting, as it is said that the construction work lasted only one night.

Culture

The place where now stands the city of Bonifacio was already inhabited approximately 6,500 years ago, a date suggested by the discovery of finds in a cave along its high cliffs. Later inside the bay, the settlement was occupied by Greek merchants and Roman soldiers; after them the city was long in the hands of the pirates of the Mediterranean Sea. Tradition states that the name was attributed only later, thanks to Boniface II of Tuscany who in 833 refounded a village here to defend against the Saracens raids. Inhabited by Tuscan settlers, for two centuries it remained under the control of the Maritime Republic of Pisa until, at the end of the twelfth century, it came under the control of the Republic of Genoa, which in 1490 expelled all the Tuscan colonists. A legend tells that the Genoese entered the city in 1195 taking advantage of a marriage and the state of intoxication of the population. Thanks to its strategic position both from the geographical point of view (possibility of control over the mouths of Bonifacio), and from the topographical (the old city is built on high cliffs overlooking the sea and is accessible only from inside the fjord), the Genoese made it become an impregnable fortress.

Among the major assaults one can remember the one carried by the king of Aragon in 1420, which lasted five months, during which a ladder was built along the cliff face to allow the water supply, called the steps of the king of Aragon. The city was conquered thanks to the deception of a Genoese emissary who allowed the garrison to return under the dominion of Genoa. Genoa, however, ceded it to France with the Treaty of Versailles of 1768. In 1793, Napoleon, when he was still a young officer, commanded the garrison of the fort for a few months. Coming to the present day, Bonifacio became a place of refuge for refugees fleeing from the Sardinian coasts; today it is instead a lively tourist town rich in history and enviable geographic location.

How to get here
