Bonifacio on the island of Corsica, France

South of mainland France and west of Italy in the Mediterranean Sea is the French island of Corsica, famous for food, wine, and scenic coastlines. Visitors here can visit the birthplace of Napoléon Bonaparte, whose family lived in the town of Ajaccio. In the commune of Bonifacio, shown here, the limestone cliffs hosted the 2012 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series, where brave competitors from around the world jumped from cliffside platforms up to 92 feet above the water’s surface.
