Nestled on the southwest side of the French island of Corsica, the seaside capital of Ajaccio is best known as the birthplace of famed French emperor Napolean Bonaparte. Yet there's a lot more to this charming Mediterranean city than its Napoleonic heritage. Stroll along cobblestone streets and colorful alleys to explore countless cafes and shops. Take in the Palais Fesch: From Botticelli to Bellini, it houses France's largest collection of Italian paintings outside the Louvre. Venture at sunset to the Iles Sanguinaires (Blood Islands), named so to describe the color of the islands when the sun hits the rocks, or sample local delicacies such as figatellu and other charcuterie and cheeses among scenic mountains and beautiful beaches.
