Charming Ajaccio, the capital of Corsica, is perhaps best known for being the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte. So of course, a visit to his home, located on Rue de Letizia, is a must on any visit to this French island in the Mediterranean.
The island was once occupied by the Genoese and thus you’ll find Italian influences in its food, culture and architecture. Stroll through its quaint, narrow streets, along its waterfront promenade or relax in a city square like Place Foch with its tribute to Napoleon.
Your cruise ship will dock in the harbour to the east of the original citadel watchtower.
