Start your day by experiencing a taste of the lost world of imperial power and royalty. After your pick up from your hotel or your cruise ship, with one of our private luxury vehicles, reach the picturesque village of Gastouri, where the impressive palace of Achilleion lies. Constructed to be the retreat of Empress Elisabeth of Austria (aka princess Sissi), this impressive complex of palatial quarters and gardens will definitely leave you awestruck. Have the chance to walk through the lavishly decorated halls of the palace, probe deeper into the fascinating history of this emblematic royal figure and wander around the densely planted gardens decorated with numerous sculptures depicting gods and heroes of Greek mythology.
Your next stop is the neighbourhood of Kanoni. Flanking the south side of the town of Corfu, Kanoni was the location of the ancient city of Corfu. Today, it is one of the most popular attractions of the island offering dreamscapes to the tiny monastery of Panagia Vlahernon and the iconic islet of Mouse Island (aka Pontikonisi).
There is no chance for you to miss a walk to the UNESCO protected old town of Corfu. Let yourselves loose, visit the two impressive fortresses that used to protect the precious town of the island and get lost in the absolutely wonderful alleyways of perhaps the most beautiful town of Greece. Do not miss the chance to visit the palace of St. George and Michael, have a coffee break at the Liston Street and track parts of the lives of figures such as St. Philomena, Antonio Vivaldi, Ioannis Kapodistrias, Giacomo Casanova, Albert Cohen, Prince Philip and many more.
