AJACCIO

Ajaccio, the capital of Corsica, is a pleasant, picturesque French city. It is located on a small bay on the Mediterranean coast, nestled between mountains and quiet, beautiful beaches with fine sand, ochre-colored house fronts, small streets, and café terraces, all of which combine to give the city an Italian “dolce vita” halo. Deeply Mediterranean, this city offers diverse attractions for enjoyable vacations: picturesque markets in the old quarter, a magnificent natural setting for days at the beach, trekking in the mountains and historical tours in what was the homeland of Napoleon Bonaparte, while each street, park, monument and statue in the city reminds visitors of the emperor.
