When your cruise ship arrives at Corfu port, hop inside your air-conditioned vehicle and head out to explore Corfu's most important sights! Arriving at our first stop, the impressive Achillion Palace, enter the world of Princess Sissi – Empress Elizabeth of Austria – who had the palace built as a retreat in the 19th century. As you walk through the unique gardens, admire the statues of important Greek figures, including the Muses and Achilles-the hero of Greek mythology after whom the palace was named. Entering the palace, discover the fascinating story of Empress Elizabeth, the “Princess Diana of her day”, while marvelling at the impressive furnishings and the priceless art works.

Driving on, past cypress trees and olive groves, we soon arrive at our next stop, the iconic Mouse Island. Looking down from your vantage point on the peninsula of Kanoni, take in the spectacular view: the tiny island of Vlacherna, on which stands a traditional white Greek church, and behind it the Mouse Island with its beautiful green tufts of trees. No one will want to miss the opportunity to take a photo or two here! And now we are ready to move on to the historical centre of Corfu old town.

Walking the narrow streets of Corfu old town, find out what led UNESCO to declare this a World Heritage Centre. Explore the maze of quaint cobblestone streets, stop to buy souvenirs in the traditional little shops and take time to visit the church of St. Spyridon, the island’s patron saint. Perhaps a coffee in the French-designed Liston square would be welcome while taking in the view of the magnificent Old Venetian Fortress to one side and the Palace of St. Michael and St. George to the other! With its unique blend of Venetian, French, British and Greek cultural heritage, Corfu town provides an unforgettable experience!

Your excursion ends as you are driven back to your cruise ship in good time for your departure!
