Early morning strolls along the still lively old port, through its vibrantly colored market, or down the alleys of the old city by the citadel and the Maison Bonaparte are highly recommended. Also recommended are swimming at its white sand beaches when the sun beats down. Those who watch the glowing red sun as it bows to the Sanguinaire islands in the coolness of the evening will then have the night before them to indulge in fresh fish, singing, and the many festivals that the city offers throughout the year. It was on the Marinella beach that Tino Rossi immortalized life in Ajaccio and around the gulf.
It can be reached by a coastal road that leads to Parata with its Genovese tower. From there, a trail will take visitors to its tip, with time to cast an admiring glance at the Sanguinaire islands and stop at the large and small Capo di Feno, a paradise for surfers and in general, for anyone who loves turquoise waters.
