Set on a sunny bay surrounded by citrus groves, olive trees, and vineyards, Ajaccio is bursting with history and cultural diversity. At the heart of the city, Place Foch is a beautiful oblong square shaded by palm trees and surrounded by small restaurants. Travellers savour a bit of respite here in view of the cooling fountain.

To the north of the bay is Cappiciolo - with picturesque coves of golden sand fringed by rocks, and Porto Pollo, a sheltered little port.

Bonifaccio is a town of immense charm and a wonderful place to sample some or the local bars and restaurants. Cappiciolo to Bonifaccio: 25NM
