Ajaccio is known as Napoleon's birthplace and as the city he made a capital. It's a place that offers numerous attractions like its charming old port. It's a mix of pleasure boats and fishing boats, whose bright colors help to cheer up the landscape. The small port, called "Tino Rossi" is located between the city and the mountains and is quite nice. It's full in the day and is a hive of activity late in the afternoon when the light changes every minute in front of the mountains. I spent a few minutes contemplating life in the harbor at that calm hour. The comings and goings of the boats and sailing vessels, of the sailors ve clean and take care of their boats, families out for a walk, etc.
