Hire a car in Bastia
Within arms reach of Corsica’s natural beauty, Bastia is the island’s true point of entry.
Up until 1811, the city was the capital of Corsica and although it holds second place as France’s busiest passenger port, it does not solely cater to tourists. In contrast to Ajaccio’s chilled-out, tourist-focused vibes, Bastia is lively and authentic.
Looking off the coast towards Italy, this city charms with an atmosphere that evokes a picture of old harbour life. Search for your next car hire with easyCar and get your bearings in Bastia as you plot your drive around the rest of Corsica.
Areas to explore
Bastia’s historic centre is made up of two contrasting neighbourhoods, each offering up its own set of charms.
Surrounding the city’s original fishing harbour is Terra Vecchia, Bastia’s spirited core. Morning markets make the city buzz as a maze of lanes snake their way around houses packed tightly together. The promenade along the old harbour is the best place to enjoy an evening in Bastia, with waterfront restaurants and bars welcoming visitors well into the night.
On the opposite side of the old harbour, you will find Terra Nova. The district is dominated by a high-walled 15th-century citadel, which contains the Governor's Palace and a few churches. Most of the surrounding area though is residential and uncommercialised.
