At the the top of the steps of Montée Rastello you will climb even higher to enter the Bastion de l'Étendard. The bastion is all that remains of fortifications that were under siege in 1554. The entrance is through the Porte des Gênes, and there is a weight and pulley system used to raise the drawbridge. You can pass through and enter the haute ville or you can pay 2 Euros and enter the bastion museum. The views of the marina, the city and the sea from the bastion are awesome.

Address: At the top of the steps of Montée Rastello

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
