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.
Ajaccio, between nature and historySee more See less
Whether you give it a short weekend or a long summer holiday, with friends, family, or a significant other, Ajaccio and its surrounding region will lay the magic of Corsica at your feet: from charming villages, fascinating landscapes, and welcoming coastlines, to its unique culture and incredible cuisine.
Ajaccio is the largest city on the island, and has enough on offer that you’ll never be bored: stroll around the citadel, shop on la rue Fesch, visit the Ajaccio museum, head to the Grand Marché near the old port for gourmet delights, or sit back and enjoy an aperitif or dinner under the stars...the possibilities are endless!
But despite all its pleasures, Aiacciu as the locals call it, won’t be able to hold you for long. It has a serious rival: Mother Nature. With her tucked-away beaches, hidden coves, natural pools surrounded by forest and trails weaving through the maquis, she’ll quickly tempt you away from city life with her breath-taking beauty
The top 10 things to do in and around AjaccioSee more See less
- Abandon yourself to Napoleon-mania. Visit his birthplace (now a museum), tour the Casone cave where he liked to go exploring as a child and, just nearby, climb up to the top of the pyramid to get up close to his statue.
- Visit Palais Fesch. It's Ajaccio’s art museum. It’s named after Cardinal Fesch, Napoleon’s uncle. With works by Botticelli, Le Perugin and Michelangelo, it holds France’s largest collection of Italian masters outside of the Louvre.
- Stroll down Avenue Fesch, the largest of Ajaccio’s pedestrian-only streets. It will take you through the borgo - the old city - to the beautiful Place Foch, which with its palm trees, its statue of Napoleon as First Consul and its “four lions” fountain, is hard to forget.
- Fill your basket with delicacies at the Grand Marché just near Vieux Port. Here each morning you’ll find the island’s famous charcuterie, a wide variety of cheeses, anciugliate (onion pasties) and “frappes”, the Corsican doughnut.
- Sip - responsibly - a chestnut beer or a glass of Ajaccio or Sartène rosé - with your feet in the sand and an umbrella providing shade in one of the beach bars and restaurants so popular with local Ajaccians.
- Sunbathe on one of the city's numerous beaches: the Ricanto (Tahiti Beach, to the south), Saint-François (under the ramparts), the Scudo, the former fief of Tino Rossi, or Capo di Feno, the sprawling natural beach that’s a favourite of surfers and naturists alike.
- Follow the road towards the Sanguinaires, past the Greek Chapel. Notice the spectacular vaults nestled in with hotels, villas and homes, before finally arriving at the Sanguinaires, a four island archipelago that lights up as the sun goes down.
- Head up the RN20 highway to the Col de Vizzavone for some fresh air. Leave your car parked and head into the forest, hiking to the natural pools of the Cascade des Anglais.
- Visit the cities that neighbour Ajaccio. Sartène to the south, which French writer Prosper Mérimée called “the most Corsican of Corsican villages”. Cargèse to the north, the most Greek of Corsican villages with its orthodox church facing its Catholic cousin
- Take a boat and sail along the coastline to the Piana calanques, or steep rocky coves, where the mountains meet the sea and meld into each other creating truly jaw-dropping scenery. These can also be accessed over land by experienced hikers.
