    Visit Ajaccio Corsica

    Ajaccio port Corsica

    We left wild and long beaches of southern Corsica and traveled further to Ajaccio. We were a little bit worried if we will be able to see again beaches that will be worth visiting. We found near Ajjaco about 10 km south two camps.

    They were both well equipped and clean, the plots for camping were large enough for bigger tents and they were in a nice shade.

    We went in the evening to the city. I was surprised by a strong traffic that lead to the town center, so I turned my car pretty quicly to a large parking place near the sea port.

    Stroling through the streets of Ajaccio

    Ajaccio is probably one of the most known towns because it was a birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte. A large market with many statues of Napoleon with sea gives visitors the feeling that the city still lives with Napoleon. The city is also known for it sold narrow streets, open food market and ultimately confectionery with more than hundred varieties of ice cream.

    Ajacco is definitely a place you must visit when you are traveling around Corsica. The mediterranean port city is also the capital of the province Corse du Sud. Original or historical town of Ajax was built by the Romans, it was removed to its current location by Genoese.

It is hard to walk on the streets with many souvenir shops, bakeries, coffee shops, restaurants without buying something.Pastry, cakes, fresh bread smells out of small shops, ice crea, delicious pastries in the shop windows look very inviting. Ajaccio is a vibrant place, especially in the evenings, when you can see locals and tourists are heading for the walk.

    On the streets of AjaccioStaying in Ajaccio

     

    If you are staying as a tourist in one of the hotels in Ajaccio, than you can go to nearby beaches and beaches in Porticcio or Sanguinaires with regular buses.

    But you can also see the coast from Ajaccio to the Pointe de la Parati with the beautiful view on the bay.

    Speaking of accommodation prices in hotels. The prices there begins at 50 €, but you cant expect for that price viewing sunsets and views to the sea. For a room in some of hotel with overlooking the sunset over the islands of Sanguinaires you will need to pay up to 580 $.
