As one of the most popular private tours of Corfu this half day excursion will take you to the Achillion Palace, Kanoni with a view of Mouse Island and Old Corfu Town.

Located in the village of Gastouri on the East coast the route to the Achillion Palace takes you through a landscape dotted with olive groves.

Empress Elisabeth of Austria built the palace in 1890 as a holiday retreat.  Princess Sissi was captivated by the Greek myths, especially Achilles, to whom the palace is dedicated.  The gardens are stunning; planted with exotic plants and trees which surround statues of gods and goddesses, the most impressive being those of Achilles.  The Empress died in 1898 and the palace stood empty until 1907 when it was bought by Kaiser Wilhelm II. 

After leaving the Achilleion, a short but scenic drive takes you to the place that a Corfu highlights tour must include, Mouse Island in the Bay of Kanoni. 

This luxury trip on Corfu ends with a tour of the Old Town.  The Spianada Square, the largest open space in Greece is to be found between the commercial centre and the fortress.  It was once a fortification protecting the city from the sea and potential invaders.  Close to the Spianada the Liston and the cricket pitch are reminders of the nations that once ruled the Island.

The ‘Kantounia’, are the cobbled streets that wind their way through the centre where the Church of Saint Spyridon, the Patron Saint of Corfu can be found.
