Bastia People must take a nap
Yes, Bastia people must take a nap. It is from 12-14pm. So, all shops, offices, car rental, foodmarket, almost all all all are closed. Some restaurants do open, some do not.
The city is quite around this time, you could almost hear nothing of those annoying horn. I love it. But, it is a quite difficult for us as tourist when everything were closed. (the bar/foodmarket), Especially that we didn't know about this tradition before. Just stunned and confused why suddenly everything is closed. So, make sure you do book a car rental, or go buy something to eat, go to offices, museums, etc before noon or after 14pm.
