The following day we docked at Ajaccio in Corsica. Perhaps it was the sunshine but this town immediately captured our hearts. The ship was berthed up against the quayside right at the edge of the tow, so it was an easy walk to the restaurants and shops. As most people know, Corsica is the birthplace of Napoleon, and they make the most of this with tours visiting his birthplace, christening place, his uncle's place and a place where he liked to play as a child! At the latter, which is at the top of a long uphill boulevard, there was a municipal tennis club, which offered a glass of wine and a view to die for, not to mention a quick loo stop. Ajaccio is lovely it has a narrow sandy beach along its promenade. I was admiring the locals who had time and energy to turn out for some midweek sunbathing when I noticed they all had Royal Caribbean towels! Corsica is the place to visit again.
