Located on the west coast of the island of Corsica, the capital city of Ajaccio is famous as the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte. This Mediterranean port town enjoys an exceptionally mild climate and offers travelers a number of cafes, restaurants and shops to enjoy in addition to a number of interesting sites, including the Cathedrale Notre-Dame de la Misericorde, where Napoleon was baptized in 1771, and the Chapelle Imperiale, built in 1855 by Napoleon III to accommodate the tombs of the Bonaparte family. Impressive views of the town can be enjoyed from the Jetee de la Citadelle, located next to the 16th-century citadel currently occupied by the army.
