Named after the Marshal Ferdinand Foch, the square seems to be entirely dedicated to Napoleon, just like almost everything in Ajaccio.
A massive Napoleon monument dominates the square and Napoleon Museum is about 5 minute walking away. However, many shops and cafes in the area are named after the most famous French emperor.
It's nice to stroll under the shady palm trees of Place Foch, enjoying the Napoleon gelateria, Napoleon cafeteria and even the Imperial Pet Shop :)

The morning market was clearly a very good one but was packing up when we arrived. This is where it all happens and radiates from. Bus tours, little train tours etc. Plenty of cafes and shops round the sides of it. Nice gardens to sit in in the middle too.

Arrived here on a Sunday and really didn't expect to see a market. What a very pleasant surprise. The variety of food produce was amazing.

Small park located very close to the cruise port. The area includes restaurants and shops. Also, there is a small outdoor farmers market.

there is no way to forget that Ajaccio is the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte and the giant marble statue of the small emperor with his brothers more than does him justice. this square is a charming spot lined with palms to enjoy a snack at one of the sidewalk cafes.

This square is at the center of the city and many of the main streets radiate out from here. The area is primarily grassy with flowers making it quite attractive. In the center is a pretty fountain with a statue of the town's favored son Napolean. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby. If you are on a walking tour you will no doubt pass through Place Foch as Napolean's birth place, the citadelle, and the cathedral are all nearby.

Buzzing place at the center of Ajaccio. There is a market with local produce such as cheeses, salamis, handicrafts. Very well worth buying stuff here to take home. On one day there was a wonderful marching band performing here. Faces the marina. Surrounding the central monument statue are main roads radiating in all directions and plenty of shops and restaurants. The hop on hop off tourist bus starts here
