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


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

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.


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


Smashing little town within a couple of minutes from the ship. Napoleons house was disappointing but still glad we saw it (although it was a bugger to find). Would advise walking around the sea front to the ‘back ‘ of the town where you’ll find lovely beach and a stunning panoramic view!!
