Bonifacio, Corsica

Photograph by Marc Dozier, Corbis

Perched atop 200-foot chalk cliffs, the town of Bonifacio lights up the southern tip of Corsica. The French island is an eruption of granite and magma just 56 miles west of Italy. Its craggy mountains soar to almost 9,000 feet on one coast, while undulating beaches and vineyards line the other.
