You will be met at Ajaccio cruise port by a Cruising Excursions representative who will then guide you to your air conditioned transportation ready to commence your tour.

You will depart from the harbour for a panoramic tour of Ajaccio. On route you will see the Cours Napoleon, which is the main shopping street, “De Gaulle” square, a wide and flourished square where stands the famous statue of Napoleon on horseback accompanied by four of his brothers, Cours Grandval, Place d'Austerlitz and the imposing memorial of Ajaccio’s notorious child Napoleon, standing high above an engraved plaque listing his many victories and outstanding achievements ; this memorial is an exact replica of the one situated outside the Invalides in Paris.

Leaving the town center, you will travel along the coastal road, passing the house of Tino Rossi, the first Corsican singer who became well known outside of the island, up to the Parata, which offers a beautiful view on the Sanguinaire Islands and the Genoese tower (no stop on the parking - paying entrance). We will then embark on a walking tour with our guide, around the narrow streets of the old Genoese part of the town where Napoleon was born, on August 15th 1769: the Cathedral where Napoleon was baptized, the Bonaparte House where he was born (not included), the « Palm trees Square » (Place des Palmiers) where the statue of Napoleon as 1 st Consul stands tall, surrounded by four lions, the Fesch Museum (not included).

At the end of this half day tour you will be taken back to the cruise ship in plenty of time for your cruise ships departure.  If you wish to stay in the center of town after the tour please advise the guide, it would be your responsibility to get back to the cruise ship should you choose this option.
