Welcome to Napoleon’s city, a charming destination in southern Corsica, home to a delightful old quarter and buzzing port. The iconic French Emperor was born here and there’s a museum dedicated to him and his family. His success indirectly led to the establishment of another local landmark – the Musée Fesch. It houses the second largest collection of Italian paintings (pipped to the post by the Louvre) that were seized during the Napoleonic Wars. Book a flight and land at Ajaccio’s airport, which is set in fragrant scrublands. What an arrival! Only a few kilometres away, you’ll find the château de la Punta, built with stones from the Tuileries Palace and the perfect place to lap up some local history. You’ll be able to easily [reserve a room] in a nearby hotel. Corsica is not just about its bigger towns, but also its breathtaking rural areas. Tour the stunning coastlines at Bonifacio and Porto-Vecchio, marvel at the Bavella Needles and hike up to the peak at Corte. Not forgetting, of course, Corsica’s delicious cold meats; what better way to tickle your taste buds than a few slices of Figatella, Lonzu or Coppa, washed down with an ice cold Pietra or Colomba beer!
