Begin your relaxing excursion with a scenic drive through Corfu's countryside to Paleokastritsa. As Greece's version of Capri, Paleokastritsa boasts a beautiful bay with scenic hillside and waterside views. Explore the area by taking a journey afoot 400 meters uphill--just over a quarter of a mile--and experience the Byzantine-influenced past of Paleokastritsa, including architecture, artifacts, and religious relics of its chapel and museums. This quaint northern village is also still home to the Byzantine monastery that sits atop a hill and still is home to monks today.
Drive up the hill to Golden Fox Cafe in Lakones. This traditional village is known by the locals as "God's Balcony," and for a good reason. It offers one of the best spots to catch panoramic views of the surrounding hills, Paleokastritsa Bay, and the entire island of Corfu.
Your tour will take you on another drive uphill for more views of the bay but with a stop for dining on authentic Greek snacks called meze and wine known as ouzo. Your private coach vehicle will take you on another 45-minutes scenic route where you'll pass popular attractions, including a former drilling ground for Napolean Bonapartes' militia called Esplanade Square and the Old Venetian Fortress--a UNESCO World Heritage monument that was built in the 14th century. You'll also pass by popular places like the commercial center of San Marco Square and the 16th-century-built New Venetian Fortress before heading back on another scenic drive to your port.
