As you arrive in Corfu port you will be welcomed by our representative and depart for your excursion to Corfu countryside and most interesting sights.
The bus will travel you through the vineyards and olive trees towards the most famous spot on the island, Paleokastritsa. The bay of Paleokastritsa is known for its unique natural beauty. It consists of 6 natural smaller bays with emerald-colored waters. Bring your bathing suits and dive into the water! You will also visit the monastery of Virgin Mary and see many byzantine icons and remnants.
Thereafter, continue your tour heading to Achilleion Palace. The Palace was envisioned and built by the Empress of Austria Elisabeth ( Sissi) and Kaizer William II of Germany. It was the sanctuary of the Empress who suffered by her life’s misfortunes. The palace is named after the Greek Homeric hero, Achilles and an immense statue of him is dominating the gardens of the palace. Sissi has decorated the palace exclusively in Greek classical style. The columns, statues, frescos and paintings are inspired by Greek themes. The gardens surrounding the palace are of great beauty and there are many rare flowers growing and birds nesting inside them.
Fortunately, your excursion does not end here and you will not leave the island without visiting the Old Town of Corfu. You will see the colorful narrow streets of Corfu, Kadounia and also the Spaniada square (the greatest in Balkans ) , the Liston ( a Venetian-style building and road) and the 16th century church of Saint Spyridon.
You will re-embark to your ship full of good memories and continue your cruise.
