About Ajaccio, Corsica

Renowned as the birthplace of Napolean Bonaparte, Ajaccio is bursting with history and cultural diversity. The Greeks were the first to discover the unique beauty of the island early in the 6th century BC, calling it "Kalliste", or "the beautiful". Climbing through the foothills and the mountains, you'll be surrounded by the greenery covering the mountainside. The local term for this lush plant life is "maquis."

Ship parks/docks right outside the town, easy to walk to, the last time I was there it was market day, nice to walk through and see the local produce and crafts, a little further on there is a beautiful Sandy beach


Had a lovely afternoon in Corsica, wandered around town on our own then went on a local open to bus, €10 per person for 1.5 hours. Beautiful island, would like to return.


Very interesting. We did an excursion here. Our guide, who was originally from Lancashire, was passionate about Corsica, he gave us so much history of the island and tried to show us as much scenery as possible. Extremely interesting excursion. Very good with the people with disabilities, he didn't rush them, he waited till all the group were together before proceeding so everyone could hear clearly what he was saying. Always checking and counting his group. Excellent guide

Got off early and enjoyed walking through the market (which isn't there in the afternoon). The town is lovely to explore and lots of restaurants on back streets if you can walk a bit further. We took the local bus to Neptune Beach and went jetskiing. Local man gave us two sun loungers for the afternoon gratis! This is the locals' beach and is worth the journey for the clear water and space to lounge on the beach (unlike the beach in town which is crammed).


One of the best cities that I've been as crew member, there's a lot of cafes and restaurants a few meters from the port, and this is the city of Napoleon, you can walk until the square and museum
