    Stop At: Corfu, Corfu, Ionian Islands

    Take this half day Corfu private tour and get to know Corfu Island even if you have little time at your disposal.
    We visit Achilleion Palace, that is located upon a hill past the traditional Corfu village of Gastouri. A strange sense of awe overwhelms anyone that gazes over the imposing form of the Palace which dominates the area with its presence, residing between the cypress trees and other exotic plants and flowers which surround it.
    The palace was built for the Empress Elisabeth and Emperor William II of Austria purchased it after her untimely death.
    Upon entering the palace, you will be amazed by the beautiful gardens that surround it and the invaluable pieces of art such as the ancient Greek statues of Zeus and Era and other smaller statues and sculptures.
    The palace ceilings and wall paintings commissioned by Elizabeth reveal the Empress’ cultivated spirit and are now considered priceless. The palace gardens are decorated with further examples of neoclassical art such as the Peristile of the Muses and the Achilleion trademark statue of the Dying Achilles as he tries to remove the spear from his ankle.
    Leaving Gastouri village following the west coast road of Corfu, passing numerous traditional Corfu villages, your tour stops at Perama. Perama is on the opposite hill of Kanoni, a long bridge is crossing the sea and joins the two sides of Corfu which can be passed only on foot taking you to the Convent of Vlachernas under the hill of Kanoni. Perama is the ideally place to admire the famous view of Mouse Island , ‘Pontikonisi’ and take the best pictures of it with your camera.
    Our next visit is Mon Repo park.
    A beautiful forest park inside of which is located the former summer residency of Queen of Greece, Konstantinos. The villa now, has become a museum open to all visitors. Further into the forest in Mon Repo’s Park there is a small Doric temple probably dedicated to Poseidon and dating from around 500 BC. Following the path that is now created the tour into Mon Repo will lead you to the spring of Kardaki, by the sea. The spring with its water flowing from the mouth of a lion, is reputed to never dry up. According to the tradition, anyone who drinks from it is destined to return to Corfu.
    Next stop the old Fortress into the Old Corfu Town Center.
    Our driver will drive you to the old Corfu town center where you are able to visit the old Fortress of Corfu, do some shopping into the venetian style Corfu Town shops, have a coffee in the famous Liston and get the blessings from the Miracle-Worker , Saint Spyridon by your visit into the main Church of Corfu, Saint Spyridon Church.
    Please note that the tour starting time can change upon request.
