Old Town, romieu garden

Continuing my journey in Bastia,i walked from the hôtel Posta Vecchia along the "quai des martyrs" ending up on the old port .. grabing the sense of bastia way of life ..corsicans take time to enjoy coffee..to talk endlessly about the weather about social or politics events,the bar's terrace are never empty i can hear laughter..conversations..baby cries ..all along the quays some fishermen are trying to full their baskets..on the opposite side of the quay (named quai sud)i climbed the beautifull stairs of the jardin Romieu, a haven of greenery takes me by surprise all along the way up to the citadelle .

And there the breathtaking vues from different spots finally wore me down...strolling threw the paved alleys is a real beauty promise for the eyes.

a visit to the museum and it's painting exibition ..climbing to the top garden that overlooks Bastia ,the mountains and the sea ..taking a break on the bench of that peacfull spot..

yes Bastia is definitly a must visit!
