3.4/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web
Maison Bonaparte was the ancestral home of the Bonaparte family from 1682 to 1923. The ground floor and cellar feature a few photographs of the family residences around Ajaccio and a few photographs of various agricultural instruments used on the land such as millstones, jars, and presses. The family rooms are on the first floor, including a drawing room, the bedroom of Madame Mère, the room where Napoléon was born, the boudoir, the gallery, and the interesting trapdoor room which Napoléon supposedly used to reach the port in 1799. Napoléon III acquired the cellars located beneath the gallery in 1860, which now display implements, such as the rare granite mill for pressing olives and an oil-press.

  • This was very interesting to see the house where Napoleon was born and grew up and find out more about his family and corsica during that time. 
  • A well presented audio guide was provided free. Yay! And in well spoken English. It provided an intimate look at the birthplace of napoleon and how his family used this house. 
  • This is House Bonaparte en well maintained Town House. So Napoleon grew up in good economic conditions. Display boards, furniture and other items show the life of the Bonaparte of family, in particular of the emperor. It should be not be impressed by the people queue in front of the House. The admission is done relatively quickly and ordered. Worth a detour in the Bonaparte house. It is for about half an hour to calculate.
