The Museum of Napoleon

For small history enthusiasts, visiting the museum of Napoleon in Ajaccio should be a great experience.

The Emperor's birthplace was transformed into a museum recounting the life of his family but also his youth. A very informative moment that your children will enjoy!

The turtle village

For children wishing to see animals during their stay in Corsica, it is strongly recommended to visit the company "A Cupulatta" which means "tortoise" in the traditional Corsican language.

So, in the vicinity of Ajaccio, you can visit this turtle farm which houses many different species, coming from Asia, Africa and Europe. Children will be delighted to meet these amusing animals and learn about the different species on the farm.
