Calvi originated as a fishing port and is known best as the birthplace of Christopher Columbus. It wasn't until the arrival of the Genoese, and the building of a bastion in 1268, that the town became a stronghold. Calvi's military heritage continues today, as it is an important base for the French Foreign Legion. While there are many historical sites in the town, it is suggested that visitors rent a car and explore the surrounding area as well. Whether you prefer the waters of the Mediterranean, relaxing on the beach, or walking in the countryside enjoying the aroma of the maquis, Calvi has something for everyone. Diving, wind surfing and sailing are all available at the finest sailing resort in Corsica. If you've had enough sun and sea, rental cars are available to explore the interior of the island.
