Ajaccio

The bustle of the city of Ajaccio will surprise you and your English-speaking driver will meander through the city to show off its heart, including Cours Napoleon, Maison Bonaparte, the Ajaccio Citadelle, Place d'Austerlitz and more.

Ajaccio is definitely a two-sided island. While one coastline forms a straight profile, the windward side has a rugged side. As well as a stunning coastline and some of the most interesting sea beds in the Mediterranean, Corsica offers valleys full of olive, pine and chestnut trees. Some mountain villages have maintained their old pastoral traditions. The rivers have created deep and spectacular canyons, such as the Borges de Spelunca at Evisa. Old stone bridges still carry sheep and mules but also hikers on the sea and mountain paths.
As interesting as this city is, it will be a relief to get to the city limits and make your way towards the mountain towns. The lush valleys will lead you to the vines of Le Clos Capitoro Winery, where you can experience tasting and perhaps purchase of the local wines. Continuing on through charming towns you will be in awe of your panoramic view encompassing the dense forests, the Prunelli River, expansive lakes and a view of the whole of the Gulf of Ajaccio.
It may also be possible to travel as far as Pointe de la Parata, breathtaking and historically fascinating, allows you to view the Iles Sanguinaires or the Bloody Islands.
