activity info

The bay of Paleokastritsa is one of the most famous locations on the island, much celebrated for its unique natural beauty, known as the “Capri of Greece”. You visit the Byzantine Monastery of the Virgin and its small museum, housing priceless Byzantine icons and church relics.

Leaving Paleokastritsa, your coach takes you via the Ropa Valley to the traditional old village of Gastouri for a visit to the Achilleion Palace.  You visit the rooms of the Palace open to visitors, offering a glimpse into the life of the “Sad Empress” as Sissy was commonly known, as well as its beautiful gardens with spectacular views over Corfu Town and the sea.

From Achilleion Palace, you are driven into Corfu Town for a visit of the historic centre of this elegant old town. Built by the Venetians more than 400 years ago, the Old Town looks more like Napoli or Venice rather than any other Greek town. Leaving the coach by the central “Esplanade Square”, you explore the town on foot accompanied by your guide. You visit the 300-year old church of St. Spyridon, the Saint Protector of the island, with its priceless collection of icons and offerings to the Saint. There is also free time for shopping and wandering around on your own before returning back to your coach for your return transfer.

We toured this attraction as part of our cruise excursion. It was a nice ride through Corfu as our guide explained the history of the island and the effects from the war. The palace is large with everyone competing for space during the tours. My favorite part was entering the garden from the roof terrace and viewing the huge statue of Achilles. Picturesque views of the island were in the background. Thank you key tours for the great day!

Kristos was just the Guide we could find. It was an excellent tour, we learnt about history, culture and economy of the island and visited some of the best places. He was flexible to our needs and spoke fluent English. I'm sure I consider Corfu one of the best Island we saw in our cruise just for his explanations. A 10!
