    Came upon this attraction while preparing for our trip and after we went to Napo Rama, wonder why this is not included in the tourist attractions of Ajaccio. A truly unique experience for young & old alike. You will not want to miss this.

    This museum is an absolute gem. It is packed with interest from letters, painting, rare books and correspondence, Corsican stilettos (the male and female variety), musical instruments and so much more. The owner and collector, Guy Savelli is absolutely charming. He is so welcoming and extremely passionate about his collections and tries to find things to interest visitors of the different nationalities. He showed me an original Edward Lear book on Corsica and an original translation of James Boswell's Account of Corsica. Another huge plus for this attraction is that it is open out of season when most other things (including the nearby public museum) are closed. A visit is highly recommended, rain or shine.

    A well presented temporary exhibition about Matisse in Corsica. Apart from that, the permanent exhibition is average but helps you understand the history of Corsica. Indeed museum attendants spend much time on their cell phone!! The visit of the Citadelle will provide you with nice viewpoints.

    Entry to the Palais Fesch also includes entry to the chapel next door – very good value. There are parts of the chapel you can’t visit (the crypt downstairs, for example), but it’s still an interesting place to visit and to see the perpetuation of the cult of Napoléon Bonaparte and his family. Explanations only in French.

    This is the birthplace of Pascal Paoli, the "father of Corsica", Corsican patriot and leader, known also as the author of the constitution of Corsica. The house is today a museum where it is possible to see the history of this important Corsican man.

    In this tiny hilltop village, there's actually a music museum. Walk by and take a look. The town is tiny, so it's easy to find. There's even an auditorium for concerts in town. Who knew!
