Itinerary

1) Discover Hidden Gems

Explore the impressive caves and pristine beaches of Paliokastritsa


One of the most famous attractions in Corfu is the Paleokastritsa caves, each of them having a mystery around it. One of them has the name Nausika, the name of the daughter of the king of Corfu who saved Odysseus the king of Ithaca as Omiros and the Greek mythology describes. Enjoy this unique experience with us and we can surely say you that this unique environment with its crystal clear waters will get your mind blown off.


An amazing boat experience with transparent turquoise crystal waters in Paleokastritsa awaits you. A small boat will be moored for us to board without lines and explore the central west coast which is full of rock formations and small caves. Travel with us to this legendary area where there is another surprise… due to the small size of the boat we will go inside the caves.


2) Feel the Relaxation

Lakones village: The most beautiful views in Corfu and the best photos


The village of Lakones is literally “hung” on the edge of the cliff. The view from above is breathtaking and is probably the most beautiful on the whole island. The green color of the olives and the pines “embraces” the endless blue of the sea and the rocky coastline and the spectacle is more than shocking.


Almost all visitors to the island of Corfu visit this place to gaze at the unique view and take the most valuable photo of their lives.


3)Live like a Lokal

Enjoy Greek coffee in the place with the most beautiful view of Corfu.


It’s time for us all to enjoy a nice Greek coffee break. On a balcony of a coffee house with stunning views will have the chance enjoy a cup of traditional Greek coffee. For Greeks, drinking coffee is like washing your face in the morning, it is some kind of a morning daily ritual because of the coffee’s strong taste and aroma.


There could be no better idyllic place to grab a homemade local snack before continuing our journey!


4) Admire Famous Sights

Angelokastro (meaning Angel’s Castle)


Angelokastro is one of the most historic Byzantine castles within Greece. For a short period of time, due to the fortified structure of the castle, it was the capital of Corfu. Fighters of the embattled town defended against attacks by Venetians, Turks and pirates but the castle was never occupied. In the interior of the castle, warehouses and tanks of that period are still maintained, while there are still the churches of Archangels Michael and Gabriel on top of the castle and that of Saint Kyriaki, being set in a cave. From this castle you can enjoy unparalleled views to the island of Corfu.


5) Experience the Hospitality

Lunch break: Enjoy your lunch at a traditional tavern of Corfu


We have chosen for you a picturesque traditional tavern in a small, picturesque village of Corfu. Dodge the tourist traps and enjoy the best of Corfu’s traditional culinary offerings at the following exceptional establishment.


Try traditional dishes as they offer a wide variety of authentic Corfiot food. All the dishes of this tavern and the whole process of the cooking is done with local products, with pure virgin olive oil. The taste, the food quality and the hospitality are those three reasons that will make your supper such a memorable experience. Last but not least you may try local wines or aperitif, homemade beers that complement the meal with original Corfiot desserts.


6) Dive into History

Achillion Palace: Stepping into the royal shoes of princess Sissy


The fairytale palace of Empress Sissy is located in one of the most beautiful parts of Corfu, Gastouri and is one of the most famous royal villas in Europe. Its construction dates back to 1890 by Empress Elizabeth of Austria, who wanted a mansion with a large garden to live in Corfu, as she believed that the nature of Corfu would help improve her health. Dedicated to Achilles, hence his name, it is adorned with statues in the lush gardens of the emperor’s favorite Homeric hero. The most famous of all the sculptures in the impressive garden is the statue of “Death Achilles” by Ernst Herter. The popularity of this palace and its garden also comes from the fact that the famous James Bond movie For your Eyes only was filmed at this magnificent place.


Empress Sissy was also captivated and awestruck by ancient Greek legends and mythology and this was the reason why she decorated the gardens with the statues of Achillies and the 9 muses. You will be captured by the mesmerizing view and the beauty with Corfu coast down below, which still has the jetty from where the Kaiser would embark on his pleasure cruises.
