Today was a day to explore Ajaccio. After espresso and pastries from the patisserie across the street--I quickly became partial to ambrucciata--we walked along the waterfront, hit the farmers market, ate some charcuterie, and took in some 16th and 17th century art at the museum. Ajaccio is easy to get around, everything is within a few blocks from our apartment, and the sidewalks are overflowing with cafes.

Just across the street is a patisserie, for espresso and pastries, and two doors to the left of that is the Eglise St-Jean Baptiste.
