Set off with your private vehicle to explore Corfu's Highlights! Start your tour with a visit to the impressive Achillion Palace, built in the 19th century as a retreat for Empress Elizabeth of Austria, also known as "Princess Sissi". Wandering through 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 the nine Muses, Greek philosophers and of course 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 seeing her personal belongings and marvelling at the sumptuous furnishings and rich variety of art works.

Hop back into your private vehicle and enjoy the journey through the beautiful Corfiot countryside, with its plethora of cypress trees and olive groves, as we head to Kanoni and the iconic Corfu landmark: Mouse Island. Legend has it, that Mouse Island was formed when the ship that had taken Odysseus back to Ithaca, his home port, was turned into stone by Posidon, god of the sea, angry at being defied by the Phaeacians. After pausing to enjoy the spectacular view and take photos, we are ready to move to our next stop, the historical centre of Corfu old town!

Walking the narrow streets of Corfu old town, you will soon discover why it has been designated a UNESCO Cultural Heritage Site. With your guide ready to reveal the towns many secrets and charms (if relevant option is selected), take time to visit Corfu Town's most important sights including the beautiful church of St. Spyridon, buy souvenirs in the traditional little shops, or take a coffee in the famous French-designed Liston square. With its unique blend of Venetian, French, British and Greek cultural heritage, Corfu town provides an unforgettable experience, leaving you only wanting to return! As this wonderful day comes to an end, sit back and enjoy a comfortable journey back your hotel!
