Ajaccio

Museums Sightseeing Nature
With a dreamy location on the west coast of the French Mediterranean island of Corsica, Ajaccio is a mecca of seaside summer tourism. It offers you abundant swimming, water sports, boating, charter cruises, and fishing expeditions at its three ports and two major marinas. This capital of Corsica in the départment of Corse-du-Sud is famous as the birthplace of Napoléon Bonaparte and for its Corsican language, although French remains the official language. You can get to the island via a ferry from Nice, Toulon, or Marseille, or by plane run by Air France. Many beaches and coves border the territory, and the terrain is particularly rugged in the west where the highest point is at 790 m (2,590 ft). You'll find attractions and activities, such as cinemas, bars, and clubs concentrated in the city center on Route des Sanguinaires. When you're feeling adventurous, you can charter a cruise along the gulf shores dotted with a multitude of small coves and beaches ideal for swimming and scuba diving. When using our France holiday planner, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
