Achilleion Palace and Old Corfu Town
This 2-hour excursion is a must-do for those new to Corfu and those who are short on time yet want to see the island's highlights. The excitement begins as you and your small group are picked up from the port and transported to Achilleion Palace, the palatial vacation home of Empress Elisabeth of Austria. Built in 1890, this stunning example of neoclassical architecture is positioned overlooking the Corfu coast and boasts an impeccably landscaped garden. Take some time to admire the palace and its artwork (additional fee) and be sure to visit the garden to see the myriad sculptures revealing the Empressesa fascination with the pantheon gods.
From there you will head into the heart of the island and Corfu's Old Town full of Greek, Venetian, French and British architecture. While here enjoy some free time to roam its ancient, narrow streets and see the highlights including Spianada Square, Liston, and the Old Fortress before your return trip to port.
