The experience then takes you to the Casone square where Napoleon Bonaparte played when he was a child. This square is dominated by the imposing monument of Napoleon I, preceded by two eagles and a huge inclined stele recalling all his victories.
Then leave downtown Ajaccio to reach the Bloody Islands via the cycle path that runs along the turquoise waters. Stop at the Greek Chapel before taking a dive on one of the wonderful beaches along the Route des Sanguinaires!
Classified as a protected natural site, the Sanguinaires archipelago includes 4 islands inhabited by a very diversified fauna and flora with many bird species such as the cormorant, the peregrine falcon, the Sardinian warbler and the seagull.
You can explore the Parata Tower built on the top of the Parata Peninsula in the 16th century by the Genoese. This one offers an amazing panoramic view of the archipelago of the Sanguinaires. From up there, you can even photograph dolphins if you are lucky!
After this short break, head for the ascent of Capo di Feno in the heart of the maquis to enjoy the sumptuous panorama over the Gulf of Ajaccio.
After passing the pass, head for Capo di Feno beach. Here Corsica takes on the appearance of a Caribbean. When one of the most beautiful beaches in Corsica mixes with the translucent waters of the Mediterranean in the heart of a green and preserved bay, you think you’ve set foot in paradise.
After a dive into the crystal clear waters of the Grand and Petit Capo, you can return to Ajaccio city centre via the interior and the St Antoine Pass!
