An Experience Out of Time

    horas Duración estimada

See how the influence of Napoleon Bonaparte still lingers in Ajaccio, which is known as Imperial Town in honor of the French emperor being born there. In several squares, statues depict Napoleon robed like a Roman consul and on horseback. It is almost impossible to escape his lasting impact, as you will see at the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary cathedral, where he was christened, and at Rue Bonaparte, one of the first streets in Ajaccio. The entire Bonaparte family left its mark here. The Bonaparte’s home since 1682 was eventually given to the French government in the 1960s and turned into a museum, where you can behold Napoleon’s death mask. You will learn even more about the emperor while watching a film about his life and dining on a light Corsican lunch. To enhance the historical aspect, the wait staff will be outfitted in Napoleonic period costumes.

• See evidence of the lasting influence of Napoleon and the Bonaparte family in Ajaccio. • Visit Napoleon’s birthplace and the modest church where he was christened. • Enjoy a light Corsican lunch served by a wait staff dressed in Napoleonic period costumes. • Opt to remain in Ajaccio following the excursion and then walk back to the ship on your own.
