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
Really enjoyed this laid back excursion “Ajaccio Scenic Tour”. Excellent tour guide. Visited Napolean’s monument. Some lovely views. A very busy market was also just a short walk from the ship.

Went on bus tour. Not a lot to see. We decided to have something to drink at a roadside Cafe across from the sea. There were 2 chairs, one facing the sea and the other facing the Cafe. My son sat on the one facing the sea. Seeing I also wanted a view, I moved my chair around so I could face the sea. Next thing a very rude waiter came over and started shouting at me (in French) obviously telling me I was not allowed to do this. I tried to point out I didn't want to look into the Cafe but he would have none of it and demanded I move my chair back. Needless to say we got up and left so the Cafe lost our order. This experience left a bad taste in my mouth. If any future cruise I go on stops there, I will stay on board ship.
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!!
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
Loved this port last year when we had to tender. This year we were docked so I could take the scooter off. We had a good look around the little local market with its fresh and speciality goods. We then walked on to a beach area and I would have swum but the OH wasn't feeling too well (too much sun I thought) so we just had beachside coffees and a crepe. Love Corsica !
