Leave Corfu cruise port behind and set off to explore the best of Corfu in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle! Your experience begins with a visit to the splendid Achillion Palace, built as a summer retreat in the 19th century for Princess Sissi, the Empress Elizabeth of Austria. Visit the rooms of the Palace, admire the sumptuous furnishings and art works and get a glimpse of the life of the Sad Empress as you see her personal belongings. Walk in the fabulous gardens, enjoy the amazing views out to the sea and admire the numerous statues of Greek historic figures, which reveal the true passion of Sissi for Ancient Greek History and Mythology.

After leaving the Palace, relax in your air-conditioned vehicle and watch the Corfiot countryside roll by as we drive to our next stop, Paleokastritsa. Arriving in spectacular Paleokastritsa, admire the world famous coastline, with its crystal clear waters, rocky cliffs and hills covered in cypresses, olive and citrus trees. Here there are numerous small bays and sandy beaches – one of which is where the shipwrecked Odysseus (the hero of Homer’s Odyssey) was washed ashore, according to a legend. After your vehicle climbs the steep hill leading to the charming 13th century monastery, step back in time as you discover the beautiful old church and gardens, together with an incredible sea view.

As this tour comes to an end, sit back and enjoy the relaxing journey as you return back to Corfu Cruise port in good time for your departure!
