This lighthouse is on the grounds of the Citadelle which sits at one end of the Ajaccio harbor. It was difficult to find a good view, as usual for many lighthouses. I determined that best view was from a tall jetty that protected one end of the harbor, but I was not sure if I was allowed to climb on it. I walked along the road that lead to the busy marina and jetty beyond, passed the marina gate, and noticed a set of partially obscured stairs in the jetty wall. I walked through the bushes, climbed up, and was rewarded with spectacular views of the lighthouse and harbor.
