AJACCIO:
NAPOLEONIC TRACES AND
PICTURESQUE ATTRACTIONS

Ajaccio mixes natural and historical charm with Corsica’s most exclusive atmosphere. Awaiting visitors are dazzling beaches and little streets dotted with picturesque buildings, as well as a lively nightlife.

Ajaccio, the birthplace of Napoleone Bonaparte, is the capital of Corsica; a meeting point of Genoese and Sardinia influences encircled by green hills that is worth a visit during a holiday on a luxury charter.

A statue of Napoleon dressed in a toga presides over Piazza Foch, the heart of old town and home to the Napoleonic Museum (housed inside the Town Hall), showcasing an exquisite collection of medals and portraits of the French general. The square is also lined with cafés and restaurants. Wander the streets and visit the Cathedral and Chapelle Imperiale (that Napoleon III built as an imperial mausoleum).

Ajaccio is also an interesting seaside town, known for its beaches, about twenty of them, like Capo di Feno, a surfing spot, La Marinella, Ricanto, Terre Sacrée, the Scandola Nature Reserve and the rock formation Calanchi di Piana, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

A Corsica charter discloses wonderful landscapes carpeted with wild nature, like the area surrounding the Gulf of Ajaccio, and the Sanguinaires archipelago, four islands of red porphyry off Punta della Parata. Sunset tinges their outlines a vermillion hue, creating the most picturesque views of the whole island to appreciate on a luxury charter while sipping a refreshing drink.

Trekking in Ajaccio: discover the best views

Wonderful trails immersed in the nature await trekking fans in Capo Rosso and the Aitone forest. Hike along these paths before hopping back onboard and resume sailing, heading to southern Corsica, or the island’s northern shores.
