Corfu city tour & Achillion

HALF DAY CITY TOUR - KANONI- PALEOPOLIS - ACHEILLION [4 hours]

Drive to Kanoni [an old canon still rests intact] and enjoy the magnificent views to the west. Down below, the Pontikonissi islet, Corfu’s landmark, lies it’s patch of cypress trees on turquoise waters.

Leave Kanoni and drive along the road of Paleopolis and guiding tour of Paleopolis from the bus.

We take the road to the picturesque village of Gastouri and through its narrow, winding streets arrive at Acheillion Palace. The position, no wander why, was chosen by the empress of Austria Elisabeth [Sissi] to build the famous palace. At the top of the hill, just after the village it sits on a terrace overlooking the island to the north and east, with the town in the back. The interior hosts several of Sissi’s personal belongings and furniture, a small museum. A large veranda with a porch decorated with beautiful statues leads to the garden, a true paradise…. Admire the famous statue of Achilles dying and the magnificent views of the town, far back.

 

We continue our drive to visit the town of Corfu, Kerkyra or Coryfo in Greek. Only by strolling around the narrow streets [kantounia] one will actually appreciate the unique flavour of the town. It’s main monuments are beautiful to the eye. Hopefully there will be time to visit the church of St. Spiridon, the patron saint of the island.
