They tell you it is 45 mins tour, what they don't say is 25 of that is parked up in two car parks. The sign clearly says it is 7Euro but they charge 10. A complete waste of time and money.

Cute little tour, nice to take, when you have only few hours for the town. Making 2 stops, just enough time to make couple of pictures.

You really do not learn more than a quick Google search will tell you. You get to know where the casino is though. Information about the city's history is not told (which is supposed to be really interesting). I am sure you can find better...More

The train runs two tours, a long one which has a few stops, and a shorter one which is non stop. The longer one is excellent, multi lingual commentary and a great way to get a feel for the place.

This is a very good way to get to grips with the lay of the land in Ajaccio and understand where all of the main attractions are. It starts and ends in the main market square and has a helpful commentary in English on the...More

Very popular way to get an overview of the city of Ajaccio. Tour takes you to see Napoleon monument and then along the coastal road to Des Iles Sanguinaire, giving you about 10 mins at each stop. Sadly the commentary was only in French and...More

Probably would be better if you could hop on and off but as it is the train does take you on a circuit of Ajaccio's most interesting sites. stops at the Place d'Austerlitz for time enough to reach the top of the imposing monument and...More

Unless you are a fan of Napoleon, this tour is a waste of time. You are crammed into tram cars, 4 to a row. You do not have individual head sets, so you have to wait for your language to be spoken to know what...More

I was in Ajaccio on a cruise. You have to buy your ticket before you get on the train. Not everyone who bought a ticket managed to get a seat. A good way to get up the hill Place D’Austerlitz where there was a stop...More

Great sightseeing tour around the centre of Ajaccio, including the old port and steep cobbled backstreets and down the narrow street where Napoleon lived, packed with pavement cafés and restaurants, so close that we could have helped ourselves to the olives! There was a stop...More

You get your tickets on the train. Ships dock right in the town and all the interesting sights are nearby. Walk down the quay, turn left at the promenade and the train(s) can be found in a tree lined square no more than 100... More

It leaves from the town square on the port end. The square is also where the outdoor market is held so you can walk around the market while waiting for the train. Enjoy!
