Highlights of Corfu

Discover the lush countryside of Corfu and see the major sites while on this 4-hour excursion. Your comfortable journey begins with a scenic ride through the panoramic island to Gastouri, a traditional village full of centenarian olive froves, and home of Achilleion Palace.

This famous landmark was a summer palace built in 1891 by order of Elizabeth of Bavaria, the Empress of Austria and Queen of Hungary who was affectionately nicknamed Sisi by her family. She named this neoclassical white mansion after her admiration of the classical Greek hero Achilles. While here, take some time to check out the beautiful frescoes, see the fine sculptures dotting the gardens and enjoy views of the coast from the mansion's Italian terraced gardens.

Continue from here to Kanoni, a small town on a hill at the edge of the Old Town of Corfu. From this vantage point you can watch the fisherman in their boats and grab a shot of iconic Mouse Island and Vlahena monastery, one of the most photographed spots in Corfu. Once in the Old Town you will visit many historical sites, including the city's 14th century Venetian Old Fortress, Town Hall and the Palace of St. Michael and St. George. Stand in Esplanade Square, one of the largest in Europe, and visit St. Spyridon Church among others.

Walk through Liston with its cafes and arcaded terraces that was once the haven of the aristocrats. You will also have time to explore the town and do some shopping. Drive past the old port with its traditional fishing boats and the New Venetian fortress on your way back to your ship.

Reviewer: Les Holborow
A very good guide conducted an informative tour of highlights of the town and its surrounds, notably the famous palace. The stop in the town centre was also most enjoyable. A delayed was the fault of clients rather than tour management.

4 StarsGood choices to visitOctober 23, 2019

Reviewer: Brenda Meding
This was mostly a "drive around" Corfu. the touring we did was by ourselves after being dropped off - but it was good. We didn't have enough time at "Old Town" - my only complaint.

Good tour but wondering why they didn’t include the price of entrance in the tour. Collecting this on the bus was awkward

Reviewer: David English
Our Tour Guide was very informative about the history of the palace and Corfu. The demise of Cici was very sad to learn about and you need to go on this tour to learn all the details.
