Calvi, Corsica

Calvi is a medieval Genoese town and a popular Corsican resort with an amazing turquoise sea, golden beaches and a cozy atmosphere.

Calvi has a vibrant and rich history. This area was settled by the Phoenicians, then by the Greeks and Etruscans, and the Romans laid out the present Lower City with a port here.

From 1278 until the 17th century, Calvi was ruled by the Republic of Genoa, whose loyalty is embedded in its motto: Civitas Calvi semper fidelis – “The city of Calvi is always loyal”.

And, according to legend, Christopher Columbus was born here, to whom the locals erected several monuments.
