A huge breakfast is served to us this morning at 9 am on the host table. We start the day actually around 11 with a visit to the town of Bonifacio. We go around key touristic points such as: The Bosco with the St. Francois esplanade and the view from the cliffs, the graveyard of sailors and their family graves, the Church of Sainte Marie Majeure with its characteristic loggia and its altar with an original form and finally, the famous staircase of king Aragon, dug into the cliff.

Traversing the streets of Bonifacio, we stop at the Cantina Doria for lunch. The family atmosphere prevails in this long and narrow room. On the menu: salad cantina (Corsican sausage, Corsican cheese, lettuce, tomato), followed by a fig and Cedrat ice cream. All this accompanied by a chestnut wine and Corsica Cola! We take a visit and observe a unique system of water collection, with many small water systems that pass from roof to roof, visible from the streets to the Church of Sainte Marie Majeure. We continue by the discovery of Saint John the Baptist Church of and the monument erected to the memory of the legionaries.

This trip through Bonifacio ends up, and we take the car again to the east direction the Lion rock and the Genoese tower. Attracted by the beautiful white sand beaches and the water so blue, we do a drop-in swimming before joining the Camping Olva in Sartène (contact info).
