It also had shops of a less dictatorial or incisive nature, such as ice-cream shops, clothing boutiques, and department stores.

Venice shop in Ajaccio, Corsica

As proprietors of the Venice for Visitors travel site, we were intrigued by a shop named "Venice."

Peering down a narrow and steep side street, we caught a glimpse of Silver Spirit in the Port de Commerce.

Citroen 2CV in Ajaccio

Citroen 2CV in Corsida

A fleet of vintage Citroën 2CVs drove through downtown Ajaccio. (We learned later that they were in Corsica on a club outing.)

Dogs in Ajaccio, Corsida

A dog crossed the busy street without incident, and two other dogs socialized on a streetcorner with their human pets.

A building with wrought-iron balconies reminded us of the French Quarter in New Orleans.

A café-bar offered tropical fruit drinks, which appeared to the the Corsican version of American-style slushies or Italian granita.
