Starting from Corfu Town, we first stop at Achilleion Palace, which was ordered to be built by Empress Elisabeth of Austria, known as Sissi. An admirer of the classical Greek Hero Achilles, she named the palace after him. You will discover the lush frescoed rooms of this neoclassical white mansion and also enjoy the Italian terraced gardens with views over the town and the coast. Fine sculptures are dotted around the gardens, many of which feature characters from Greek mythology, including Achilles.
Later on, we reach Paleokastritsa Bay. You have plenty of free time to swim into the bluest waters of the Ionian Sea, take an optional boat ride to see the famous caves where Ulysses met the princess Nausicaa, or take a hike to visit the Monastery of the Virgin Mary, founded in the 13th century.
Next, you will drive up the hill until Lakones Village, the place with the most breathtaking view of the whole island. All this route will work up an appetite: time for lunch in a local tavern (not included), where a typical Greek menu will be served. Let us know if you have any dietary restrictions, in order to adapt our plates to your needs. Admire the heart-shaped bay and Paleokastritsa area from above while you taste a glass of Greek wine and some more local delicacies. Menu to be announced.
After lunch, time to relax in a panoramic drive through olive groves and ancient villages, until we will reach Canal D’Amour in the Sidari area, one of the places where Nature has created amazing cliffs bathed by emerald waves in amazing shapes. That’s the moment where you will take some of your unforgettable photos, indeed!
Returning to our vehicle, our next stop will be a few minutes later in Kassiopi, a cute fishing village where you will enjoy an hour’s free time for an easy walk around the port, beach, and local cafes as well.
The last leg of the route will include a panoramic drive through the Northeast coast of Corfu, admiring the beauties of areas such as Kalami and Barbati (seen from a distance), until we enjoy the last stop at Ipapanti Monastery, a charming bay with a lovely church on a small island, placed on an area full of luxury villas and hotels.
