Ajaccio

Ajaccio, located on the west coast, is the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte and the residence where he was born has been turned into the Bonaparte Museum. The impressive Cathedrale Notre Dame de la Misericorde is the place where he was baptized in 1771. Before you set off for one of the villages in the Cinarca Valley with their wine slopes or for a visit to the volcanic stones of Scandola, make sure to visit the Fesch Museum. It is known for its fabulous collection of (amongst others) Italian Primitives.
