Wonderful medieval citadel, great white sand beach with shallow crystal clear water, nightlife Located on the West seashore of Corsica, Calvi is famous for its night-life, great white sand beach and shallow crystal clear water without waves. Calvi is the perfect place to relax, enjoy the delightful corsican food and have very short nights. The city was founded during the 1st century AC. The citadel that has been built in 1450 AC is a very good place to have a short walk (30 minutes to 1 hour) and enjoy the view from the battlements. On a rainy day, you may also visit some interesting buildings there, but rain is more than rare in Corsica during the summer... All along the beach and the marina, there are plenty of restaurants and shops. From the marina, just walk up in the old town to visit the famous "Rue Clemenceau": old house, restaurants, bars, shops and a very cute baroque-style church: Sainte Marie Majeure.
