We enjoyed the Place de Gaulle, with its beautiful gazebo with flowers and the memorials. There are some great views of the city and the ocean.

Possibly the least exciting square to see! A fountain that doesn't work, a lack of atmosphere, disappointed. There are a few redeeming features, the view for example, but don't go out of your way to visit.

A great place to hang out and enjoy a sunny day; sometimes there is a flea market there that's fun to go to.

We were lucky enough to be in Ajaccio for Napoleon's birthday weekend and Place de Gaulle is where it all happened - reenactments of battles and negotiations, complete with musket and canon fire and dancing. We got a lovely outside table at a bar right...More

Beach on one side (a block off), bars, shopping and food on the other three sides make sit a great central location in Ajaccio to meet and just relax. There was plenty of people around just strolling and people watching was great. Nice to place.
