Get a closer look at the rock carving of the Staircase of the King of Aragon, dug by Alfonso V's troops in a single night during the unsuccessful siege of Bonifacio in 1420, according to legend.

In any case, it was good that we went on the tour and had this holiday experience! What a pity that everything is exclusively in French. We would have wished for at least one flyer in English and German for the most important stops on the tour, or headphones with explanations in German or English. Some were seasick on the way back. I struggled too. As a result, the return trip was very exhausting, unfortunately. I would definitely take travel pills with me against the nausea, because the boat is rocking a lot. Otherwise: great tour, impressive coastal insights, beautiful moments, even without good knowledge of French. And Bonifacio is really a beautiful city. The stay there was a bit too short for us (3.5 hours), we would have preferred to return in the evening. Overall great experience for the whole family!

This outing was very pleasant despite the j=swell on the return trip in the evening. The 3 hours to go and the 3 hours to return seemed very long to me but were worth it once arrived in Bonifacio because the place is magnificent. The arrival in the port is superb, the old town is very pretty, .... filled with small shops. At this time of year, there were few tourists. In short, we had a very nice day. The crew of the boat is very friendly

Very nice excursion, certainly long but the landscapes are so beautiful !!! Appreciable comments from our cabin crew, on the way out, very good. In addition, on the way back, we had the chance to see dolphins... For catering in the upper town of Bonifacio, beware and select. Very disappointed on that side. We will do it again no problem.
