Ajaccio, Corsica

Ajaccio, Corsica

Corsica, France is located in the Mediterranean Sea, southwest of Italy, southeast of France and north of Sardinia. Corsica is a territorial collectivity of France by law, as such has powers slightly higher than other French regions. The city of Ajaccio, Corsica’s capital and the birthplace of Napoléon Bonaparte, is as beautiful as it is filled with history. The downtown area is filled with chic boutiques and shops as would be found in Paris. The cobblestone streets are filled with palm trees and outdoor cafes which compliment the relaxed Mediterranean atmosphere.

The visitor to Ajaccio is pleasantly reminded that they are visiting the city of Napoléon Bonaparte’s birth by the numerous statues and historic sites. The main street in Ajaccio is Cours Napoléon. The Ajaccio Cathedral with its Venetian Renaissance style was the site of Napoléon Bonaparte baptismal, his marble baptismal font is located in the Cathedral. The drive along the coast with the view of The Archipelago Iles Sanguinaires is amazing. Corsica is very mountainous along with having more than 200 beaches to its credit.

Corsica can be described in one word “stunning”!
