Cruises to Calvi

About Calvi

Calvi is Corsica's second cruise port; most ships who call at the French island visit Ajaccio. The historic city is located in the northwest region of the island, and is known for its 15th-century citadel with granite walls, which is built into a rocky outcropping at the entrance to the harbor. Calvi and its neighboring coastal villages are set against a mountain backdrop, and the views from your ship at anchor outside the harbor are stunning.

Tours take passengers to explore some of the villages nestled in the hills, and independent explorers can easily tender into Calvi and spend a few hours exploring the citadel, shopping on the pedestrian boulevard or sampling local French delicacies (try the local charcuterie, sheep and goat cheese, wine and honey).

Why go to Calvi?

Pros:

Gorgeous island port, with city and citadel set against a mountain backdrop

Cons:

Tour variety is limited

Bottom Line:

A lovely port for a relaxing half-day visit, mixing food, shopping and history

Currency & Best Way to Get Money?

Corsica is part of France and therefore uses the euro; check online for current currency conversion figures. You can find banks with ATMs in the small downtown area by the port; try Boulevard Wilson.

Language?

French is the main language, though there is a Corsican language that's still used by locals.
