Maison Bonaparte, Ajaccio

(3.3/5 based on 600+ 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.

  • Terrific piece of history that is well worth a visit . The only downside was none of the historical information Was not available in English, which I found strange and rather rude.
  • Very long queue and because of the crowd, we didn't have time to look at everything because they kept shunting us along.
  • It wars to boring because i come from Monacco💤
  • Nice history, no English on the info boards.
  • Great Monument of an Emperor
