Bastia is the second-largest city on the island of Corsica; the French island off the coast of Italy, which possesses a rugged and authentic charm that makes it a beautiful city. There are two culinary boutiques in Bastia from which to sample the local delicacies.
If you want to explore the fantastic beaches around the city then car hire from Bastia is recommended, as one of the most popular beaches is located a few miles south. If you like sailing, then make your way to L'Arinella Beach, which is the major sailing centre.
Bastia's location in Upper Corsica puts it within easy reach of the Cap Corse, and by taking advantage of car hire from Bastia you can see what the region has to offer. The Cap Corse is a 25-mile long peninsula, which contains many towns each with something different to offer. The beaches around the peninsula are stunning, and if you hire a car from Bastia and make the short drive to Pietracorbara, then you can explore the area on horseback, on foot via hiking trails or by walking from beach to beach. Lots of locally-run sailing companies operate tours from the tip of Cap Corse, exploring the coast and its warm waters.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
