Very interesting museum of art in centre of Ajaccio. Great way to spend a few hours to appreciate the many paintings on display.

This is a nicely laid out, airy museum, it has some important works although it's not that easy to find things. We're not art buffs so just had a gentle stroll around. Your entry ticket includes access to the adjoined imperial chapel where Napoleon is buried so worth a look. Also, Ajaccio is absolutely hopeless for public toilets so use the ones in here while you're there! You can but postcards of the main paintings in the shop. The paintings are not fiercely guarded surprisingly but I wasn't sure if photos were allowed so didn't take any.

Ok museum of XIV - XIX C art - the cardinal's taste is kinda focused on a religious theme. Having seen the big European collections, it is surprising how many of these works are quite bland.For EUR 8 it is ok and worth 1 hr.

Before visiting Ajaccio I did not know that Cardibal Fesch had made the most amazing collection of pictures housed in this fine palace. Ajacciomis a littke place, but this collection is huge and reallybinteresting. Lots of links to the Bonaparte clan.
Gonto see it!

We visited here and were very impressed with the collection of very early paintings. This was about the only recommended cultural site that was open on a Sunday. One of the curators who spoke very little English was very keen for us to see his favourite painting and it didn't disappoint, the brushwork was amazing.
