DETAILED DESCRIPTION 

DURATION 8 hour

LOCATION Corfu, Greece

Pickup Service

After a private pickup from your hotel, we start our tour at the beautiful Achillion Palace, built as a summer retreat for Empress Elizabeth of Austria – better known as Princess Sissi. Exploring the fabulous gardens, you will be taken on a trip through Greek mythology as you walk between the numerous statues of Greek historical figures, including Achilles, 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 sumptuous furnishings and rich variety of art works.

Sit back and relax as you travel on through the wonderful Corfu countryside to reach our next destination, Sinarades, where we visit the Folklore Museum. Walking through the rooms of this restored Corfiot home, step back in time and experience traditional village life as it had been lived for hundreds of years on the island. Driving on, take in the stunning hill views on our way to Kato Garouna, a village dating back at least 500 years. From here we continue on to visit Chlomos, nestled in the mountains with unparalleled views of both the east coast and south of Corfu. See for yourself the narrow "kadounia" – cobblestone alleyways – between the traditional Venetian red and orange coloured houses. Our tour ends at Marathias, where we stop to enjoy the golden sands, swim in the crystal clear waters of this beautiful beach and enjoy a lunch (additional cost) at a traditional taverna.

After a day full of wonderful experiences, enjoy a safe and comfortable journey to your hotel!
