The commune of Ajaccio is situated on the west coast island of Corsica in the Mediterranean Sea. Corsica is about 130 km from the shore of Leghorn, Italy and about 390 km from Marseille's coast. Its volcanically formed cliffs and peaks that make up the island terrain have earned it the moniker of "Mountain in the Sea." A car hire in Ajaccio is the perfect way to explore the stunning island of Corsica.
Ajaccio is renowned as being the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte. The residence in which he was born is now the National Bonaparte Museum, housing a memorial to his life and legacy. Another historical site of interest is the citadel; this medieval fortress stands upon a bluff that looks out to sea and was used to guard Ajaccio's harbour throughout history.
The island of Corsica is home to 8 wineries, and with a year-round temperate climate, it is an ideal location for vineyards to thrive. The fertile soil of this lush island is credited to the many rivers that flow throughout its terrain. You can partake in the many water sports available here, such as kayaking, water skiing, windsurfing, diving and jet skiing. If this sounds a bit extreme, choose a nice spot to soak in the sun's rays on one of the many picturesque beaches in the area.
