I love the idea of traveling thru a city and not having to drive (or walk in 30+ degree heat), so I'm always a fan. We took the longer of the two rides offered, but I was the... read more

The petit train in Ajaccio is petit on excitement but grand on extortion. For about 8 euros it takes you up the main busy road from the harbour and after 10 minutes deposits you in a deserted car park amonst some flats. By coincidence (!)here there is a little souvenir shop, possibly under the same ownership as the train ?... More

I love the idea of traveling thru a city and not having to drive (or walk in 30+ degree heat), so I'm always a fan. We took the longer of the two rides offered, but I was the only one who thought it worthwhile. The rest of the family was bored. It goes along the coastal road for quite awhile,... More

Visited Ajaccio last week as part of a cruise and we fancied getting a quick taste of the immediate area around Ajaccio town. The train looked quite interesting and was advertised at 1 hour 40 minutes in length. It's 10 Euros each and basically you will be driven up through the town to see a monument dedicated to Napoleon Bonaparte,... More

We took the tour of this quaint town. The train goes up the hill to the Napolean monument and then back down. That's it! Totally a waste of time.

While the train journey was a good route and a fun way of seeing the coastline, there was no English commentary which made it difficult knowing what statue or building we were looking at. I had asked at the kiosk where we bought tickets and the man said there was English commentary. A major error.

I loved traveling on the little train around Ajaccio on the island of Corsica. The local beach was beautiful, and we passed many statues of Napoleon Bonaparte, including a huge statue of him with his four brothers at the top of the main street.

These little trains are all over France and this one is not much different than any of the others. A tour around the town stopping at Napoleon's statue for about 10 minutes.Since it was so cheap it is worth the time

When we first saw the Le Petit Train we scoffed. Then we saw the routing which not only went around the major sights in town but went along the coastal road to the Sanguines, which is too far to walk. We really enjoyed the train and the announcements were made in three languages, including English. We were given ample time... More
