Drinking & Nightlife

Ajaccio’s most atmospheric bars tend to be concentrated along bd Pascal Rossini by the western waterfront, and rue Roi du Rome up in the old town. Look around the chichi port Charles-Ornano, at the marina, too. In high summer, the centre of pleasurable gravity shifts west to the rte des Sanguinaires, which is lined with trendy paillotes (beachside venues) and discos.
