Porto Vecchio is Corsica’s third biggest town.

It is ideally located between sea and mountain, bordered on the east by the Tyrrhenian Sea and on the west by the Ospedale and Cagna mountains. The slogan “city of salt” is sometimes used, with the presence of salt marshes that are still active adjacent to the harbour. Surrounded by 4 bastions, the upper town, with its cosy small bars and elegant boutiques, hosts ongoing cultural and leisure activities during the summer months.
