Calvi (Corsica) cruise port

Christopher Columbus was born in Calvi in 1441, which at the time was part of Genoese Empire. As the often subversive elements of the isle gave its inhabitants a fairly bad reputation, he'd have been expected to mask the exact birthplace of himself.

With its 6 km long sandy beaches, boarded by pine-trees, is dominated by the Genoese citadel mounted on a promontory with the little town below, extending along the waterfront, bustling with yachts and fishing boats. Not surprising its perfect setting is so attractive for vessels of all sizes.

Visited since Ancient times, presumably from 500 BC by Greeks, Etruscans and Phoenicians, the port city was established by the Romans in the 1st Century. Following the fall of Roman Empire, it was devastated by Ostrogoths and Vandals between the 5th and 10th Centuries. However, it was reconstructed by Pisans during the next 3 centuries. When Genoese took the Island over, they built the citadel. In 1794 the city was besieged by English troops, and during this siege Nelson lost his right eye. In 1796 Calvi was left to the French.
