The ship berthed at a pier close to the town, so it was easy to walk around the town and the harbour. The lines to re-board the ship were very long and the process took over an hour. There was no MSC presence to monitor and control what was happening in the lines, and this aspect spoiled an otherwise pleasant visit to the Ajaccio. Read Less

Charming town. The night before this stop, we attended the ship's orientation lecture onboard. It was standing room only, because no one had much knowledge about this port. The speaker made it sound like the port was only a handful of buildings, and almost everything would be closed since it would be Sunday. I think many decided to skip this stop and stay on the ship. Fortunately we went ashore and found a charming town that was much more than a couple of shops. There were several seaside restaurants open. It made for a lovely day strolling through the town and harbor, as well as dining. Read Less

One of the highlights of our cruise. Corsica is a French island but was an Italian Island for much of its history. Corsica sill has much Italian influence and personality, so much so that even the oft times arrogant French cannot subdue. If you arrive early morning, you must visit the fresh produce market just a short 50 metres from the port where you can buy freshly made Italian and French influenced food and snacks. Read Less

Ajaccio is a port with a small town and few beaches. Best thing to do is swim at the beaches, otherwise you can walk about the town or take a bus tour to go around the town and look at the scenery from the second deck of the bus.

We arrived on a Sunday, and everything was closed. But we had a great walk through the town, ending up on the beach.

Also here the ship docks in town. A short walk into the center. Also here a hopon off bus, and a touristic train with 2 different routes. One of 1 hour and one of 1 1/2 hour. Nice restaurants around the port for a good lunch.

We love Corsica. Ajaccio is easy on the feet. We did the HoHo bus trip well worth doing. If you arrive in port on a Monday however the main draw of Napoleons birth place is closed.

Made or own excursion around the town, at our pace. Lovely town, with good architecture and shops and restaurants. My schoolboy French came back to me, very handy.

This stop suffers from being on a Sunday. Unlike the States, life rather stops on a Sunday around here. Some tourist shops were open as well as some seaside restaurants but mostly it was a very quiet walk around this pretty city. Rather unremarkable though. Maybe this is the place for an excursion.
