Add To Plan

Traveling by coach from the pier, you will journey into the beautiful and lush land that was praised by Homer and considered the ideal setting for his "Tempest" by Shakespeare. Richly endowed by nature as no other Greek island, Corfu continues to remain a part of Greece that stands apart.

Making your way through fertile areas of orange and lemon groves, you will come to reach Achilleion Palace. Built 100 years ago as a summer palace for its former owners, the Empress Elisabeth of Austria and Kaiser Wilhelm II, the palace is surrounded by manicured lawns and classic Greek statues. Not surprisingly, the residence and grounds contain numerous paintings and statues of its namesake, Achilles. The Imperial gardens located on top of the hill offer majestic views of densely wooded countryside and the Ionian Sea can be viewed in the distance as well.

After spending approximately one hour at the Palace, your tour will proceed on to one of the island's beautiful private villas. Perched on a small rise, the Villa offers lovely views of a tranquil bay. Upon your arrival, you will be treated to a traditional Greek buffet luncheon, served with refreshments.

Relax and soak in the ambience at the water's edge or sit poolside where a local trio will entertain you with popular music of the island and dancers will perform the Syrtaki dance. In true Corfiot style, you will be made to feel right at home by the warmth of your host.

It is not considered suitable for wheelchair guests or guests with mobility concerns. Hats and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. This tour does not go to Corfu Town.
