Fodor's Review

This Genoese citadel is perched on a rocky promontory at the tip of the bay. An inscription above the drawbridge—civitas calvi semper fidelis ("The citizens of Calvi are always faithful")—reflects the town's unswerving allegiance to Genoa. At the welcome center, just inside the gates, you can watch the video on the city's history, book an English-language guided tour, or follow the self-guided walking tour.
