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.
