My wife and I took the La Petit train to go around the city as we were on TUI cruise holiday and we had only few hours to explore it. We decided to do the longer run, 1.5 hours, for 10 Euros and enjoyed the...More

We took the long trip, going round the town was fine and travelling along the coast was good but we had to come back along the same road which wasn't so good. A good stop at Napoleons Statue.

An excellent way to see the main attractions of Ajaccio. Its a cute little road train which travels all around Ajaccio and is very popular. It starts at the quay end of the market.

Took this sightseeing train to get a quick tour of Ajaccio and surrounding area. The ticket sellers and staff were terribly rude. The driver got in to arguments with several passengers and drove like a maniac. He wanted to stay for such a long time...More

As other reviewers have noted, the service has two distinct offerings and we took the shorter ‘city’ tour at €7 pp. Often such tours deliver a great introduction to a town to assist with your bearings. Leaving aside the operator desire to cram sardine like...More

This train can comfortably seat two people in a row. Three will work. But the squeeze 4 in each row making it uncomfortable for all and the two in the middle can see nothing. Save yourself the discomfort. Not worth it

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!
