What a surprise to find a mini-Louvre in little Ajaccio. In its collection of more than a thousand works, the Musée Fesch includes works by great artists from Botticelli, Veronese and Titian to Canaletto and Poussin. Housed in a 19th-century palace that belonged to a cardinal and uncle of Napoleon, the museum’s palm tree–lined courtyard is just the place to relax once your eyes are sated on masterpieces.
