Lots of stalls offering wide range of locally produced foods and products - honey, soap, hams, fruit and veg. Also the pick up point for the little train tours. Several souvenir shops around the outside street.

It's worth visiting this market as they have lovely fresh local produce and gifts. Like most of the town there are no public loos. I bought some lovely soap and some local jams.

This museum has the most important collection of Italian paintings outside the Louvre. Bellini, Botticelli, Titian, etc., don't miss it if in Ajaccio.
