Top 3 travel tips
A visit to the turtle park A Cupulatta is great fun, especially for the young visitors. But even the "big ones" can learn a lot about the 170 species of turtles that live there on a tour of the park.2. Looking into Napoleon's cradle
Follow in the footsteps of the probably most famous Corsican and start a discovery tour through his birthplace. The "Place Letizia" building houses a top-class exhibition on several floors, illuminating Napoleon's life in all its stages.3. Take a boat trip to the Gulf of Porto
The rugged west coast of Corsica is best explored by boat from the port of Ajaccio. Enjoy the ride on the sun deck and go ashore in the bay of Girolata to explore the picturesque pebble beach and the old fort.
