Ajaccio is the largest city on the French island of Corsica, and is probably best known as being the birth place of Napoleon Bonaparte.  After the energy of the previous two days, it was time for a slightly more leisurely day.  We spent the morning wandering around the town, including a ride on the "Little Train", and the afternoon in the Musée Fesch, an art gallery with a large collection of (mainly) Italian paintings amassed by Cardinal Joseph Fesch, Napoleon's uncle.
