Cruises from Ajaccio
Ajaccio (aka Aiacciu, Aiaccio) is a port on the west coast of the island of Corsica, 390 km SE of Marseille. It occupies a sheltered position at the foot of wooded hills on the northern shore of the Gulf of Ajaccio. The city not only encloses the entire harbour but takes up the better part of the Gulf. Ajaccio is a relaxed and pleasant town with an exceptionally mild climate, and a wealth of smart cafés, restaurants and shops.
The birthplace of the legendary Napoleon Bonaparte whose association with the town is emphasised everywhere by street-names and statues.
