What to do in
15 August 1769: The Bonaparte family welcomes their new child, and christens him Napoleon. For France, this marks the beginning of an unforgettable era. For Ajaccio, it’s a first step towards glory and a reputation that attracts thousands of visitors still today. But while the birthplace of the Emperor may be what brings them, they always leave with a head full of other memories found in the alleyways of Ajaccio, Cargèse la Greek or Sartène, or on the trails of the Sanguinaires, in the rocky coves of Piana or on the sands of Capo di Feno.
