LOCATION Corfu, Greece

Pickup Service

After a pickup from your hotel by your private vehicle, we will begin our journey with a visit to the Achillion Palace. As we enter the Palace,  we discover the fascinating story of Princess Sissi – Empress Elizabeth of Austria – who had the Palace built as a retreat in the 19th century. Visit the rooms, marvel at the sumptuous furnishings and rich variety of art works, As you wander through the fabulous gardens, you will have the opportunity to admire numerous statues of Greek historical figures, including the Muses, and Achilles himself– after whom the palace was named.

Driving through the countryside after leaving the Palace, you will soon discover why Corfu is called the ‘Green Island’. It is highly unlikely that you will have seen so many wonderful shades of green all together, with the variety of trees and vegetation the island has to offer!

Arriving in our next stop, Paleokastritsa, admire the world-famous coastline, with its crystal clear waters and imposing rocky cliffs. After your vehicle climbs the 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!

Returning to your air-conditioned vehicle, relax as we continue along the spectacular road leading to the traditional villages of Lakones and Makrades. Still in the north-west of the island, we take in the sensational views from Bella Vista, before crossing the rugged northern landscape of the island, to arrive at its north-eastern corner, in the traditional village of Kassiopi. Here, together with the ancient ruins of the castle, you will find a charming fishing harbour, tavernas offering locally caught fresh fish, and a wonderful range of shops.

On our way back to your hotel, we follow the east coast, passing through the picturesque villages of Kouloura, Kalami, Nissaki and Barbati, with spectacular panoramic views of mountains, small bays and the Albanian coastline across the sea. The perfect way to end a day full of unforgettable experiences!
