If there is an essential city to visit in Corsica, it is its capital, Ajaccio! Known for being the birthplace of Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, you can also visit his house, which has now become a museum exhibiting family heirlooms. If you want to discover Corsica and its gastronomy, do not hesitate to lose yourself in its market, a meeting place for local life in the heart of the imperial city, where local producers will be happy to delight your taste buds with a tasting of their products (charcuterie, cheese)! You certainly know Ajaccio for the bright yellow facade of its cathedral: Notre Dame de la Miséricorde where Napoleon was baptized, be curious and go inside, admire the frescoes and trompe l'oeil paintings. To relax, leave the city and take the direction of the Iles Sanguinaires. On your way, take a break on one of its countless fine sandy beaches, including that of Marinella, beautifully sung by Tino Rossi.
