Guide to Ajaccio

An idyllic historic city capturing the true essence of the French Riviera

Situated on the west coast of Corsica, the handsome city of Ajaccio has all the glamour and sophistication of the Côte d’Azur matched with an array of historical beauty and cultural heritage. Always bustling with activity, there’s no shortage of things to do in Ajaccio, making it an incredibly enjoyable yacht charter destination for the entire charter party. 

When you arrive at the port of Ajaccio on a luxury superyacht you can expect tremendous views as you sail into a beautiful bay with mountains at the foot of the town. Step off your vessel and explore the trendy waterfront promenade that stretches west, buzzing with chic shoppers enjoying the lavish boutiques during the day and elite partygoers when the sun goes down.

Corsica's divine capital also has the pride that comes with playing a role in world history. Famous as the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte, the general’s childhood home is now a national museum that is a popular attraction when visiting Ajaccio. For art lovers and history enthusiasts, be sure to head to the Old Town where you can also enjoy the Fesch Palace, an art museum home to one of the most important collections of Italian paintings in France including works by Botticelli, Raphael, Veronese and Titian. 

In addition to enjoying the beautiful architecture, winding streets and a stunning natural harbor,  Ajaccio also boasts an array of golden sandy beaches ready to be explored. Just a 15 kilometer journey around the bay from Ajaccio lies the private and secluded Plage de Porticcio. Quiet, idyllic and stunningly beautiful, the glistening turquoise waters create the perfect anchorage for an afternoon lounging aboard your superyacht in the Corsican sunshine. Often compared to the beaches in Seychelles, it is one of the essential places to visit in southern Corsica, perfect for those that want to swim and explore below the water level.

With an authentic Mediterranean feel and something to see at every corner, Ajaccio is definitely a destination not to be missed. If you are interested in discovering this part of the French Riviera from the comfort of a superyacht, view all of the crewed yachts for charter in the South of France and begin planning your next yachting vacation with a reccomended yacht charter broker.
