What you can expect

Some of the most popular sites on the island of Corfu form the setting for this shore excursion, complete with a personal guide. Visit the palace of Achilleion and the monastery of Palaiokastritsa, take a guided tour of Corfu Town and get some leisure time to relax on the island.

Head from the port of Corfu to the palace of Achilleion, built in 1892 for Empress Elisabeth of Austria. A live guided tour shows you the famous sculptures and frescoes depicting the Greek hero Achilles, and you can appreciate the grandeur of a site that once housed imperial royalty.

Next, a scenic drive takes you through the island’s natural landscape and local villages for a visit to the beautiful town of Palaiokastritsa. Admire the 13th-century monastery standing atop the hill with a marvellous view of the rocky coast and the sea.

After you pass through Ropa Valley, get a glimpse of the village of Gastouri, drive past the Kaiser’s Bridge and admire the view of the renowned convent of Vlachernae on tiny Pontikonisi Island. On your way back to the port, you can enjoy a tour in Corfu Town, stop at the church of Saint Spyridon and take a stroll under the balconies in the unique alleys of the city.
