Mostly unknown, secondary artists but there is one Bellini, one Botticelli, two Titians, and a few other famous ones on second floor. The basement has an interesting collection of Corsican art. Entrance fee for adults is 8 Euros and for seniors it is 5 Euros.

This museum situated in ajaccio city centre presents some objects mainly paintings referring to Napoleon. The history of the famous french emperor is explained too. Quite interesting if you want a cultural pause during your stay in corsica !

An extensive and beautifully curated collection of paintings with both eccentric (Temptation of the Chouette) and classic (Titian) examples. Allow two hours. Consider returning if you like painting.
