Most things in Ajaccio are related to its unique geographic location overlooking the sea with a stunning backdrop of snowy mountains that can stay white until springtime. Some of the best places to visit in Ajaccio are its beautiful beaches with crystal clear waters. Other important things to see in Ajaccio are related to its rich architectural heritage. 

If you're still wondering what to do in Ajaccio, the National Museum of the Bonaparte Residence and the Imperial Chapel are at the top of the list. Other main Ajaccio attractions are monuments such as the Renaissance-era Cathedral, the Fesch Museum, or the 16th-century Citadel. 

The Citadel, a fort built in 1492 that houses a "castello" (tower) and six bastions, is usually ranked as one of the best places to see in Ajaccio by most guidebooks, but you can't actually visit it because it belongs to the army.
