Booking form

Choose bus by capacity


Our Shore2Shore Excursions guide will meet you at the Port of Ajaccio where we board an air-conditioned coach to take a guided tour.

We will start our tour with a panoramic tour (by bus) to the city passing the most important places like General de Gaulle square, Austerlitz square, etc. along the cornice of the "Iles Sanguinaires" (Bloody Islands) to the Pointe of Parata which offers a magnificent view of the Iles Sanguinaires and Genovese Tower.

We will make some stops: Austerlitz square to see the "cave" (Napoleons refuge as a child) in memorial with a statue. Also we will see the cemetery with the grave of Tino Rossi, the famous singer. Depending on the time available, our guide will propose some more places of interest.

Arriving at the Pointe of Parata, we will leave the bus for a walk with the guide (about 20 minutes) and we will have about 30 minutes to take pictures and enjoy the views.

Returning back to the city we will pass the monument of the Holy Land, the house of Tino Rossi and the Cathedral.

Our next stop will take us for another walk visiting the Charles de Gaulle Square with the statue of the Emperor and his 4 siblings, the house where Napoleon Bonaparte was born and will end at the Plaza Foch, where the market is.

From there you can return back to the boat or enjoy some more free time as the Plaza Foch is located just opposite the port.

We trust you had a wonderful day with us and we shall look forward to seeing you again soon.
