Olga was our guide for a walking tour of Ajaccio, the birthplace of Napoleon. We enjoyed a scenic walk along the coast viewing the Mediterranean below us. We passed by the childhood home of Napoleon and learned about his history and the city's attitude toward him. We toured an outdoor food market, a park, the Genovese citadel and a large public square named for Charles De Gaul. Tour was very informative.
