travel42 Port Guide: Ajaccio

Ajaccio travel42 Port of Call Guide

A sparkling Mediterranean paradise on the western coast of Corsica, it's clear that Napoleon's storied birthplace is special in more ways than one. The town is easily explored on foot, though it is hard to pry your eyes away from the harbor to venture farther inland.

For a small island, cars are surprisingly numerous, but taxis are not metered so be prepared to haggle. Delicious restaurants and unusual shops abound.
