The Guided City Tour begins from the village of Gastouri, where the exquisite Achilleion Palace, built in 1891 by the Empress Elisabeth of Austria, offers amazing views to the Ionian Sea. Then, we visit Kanoni , overlooking Mouse Island (Pontikonisi) and the Monastery of Vlacherna and the Town of Corfu, that boasts the following sites: Old and New Fortress, Liston Square, EspIanade Square, Church of Saint Spyridon – patron of the island, The Royal Palace of Saint George and Saint Michael, Antivouniotissa Byzantine Museum and The Synagogue. A professional guide will inform you about the historic and cultural background of those sites. You will have free time for shopping in the Old Town.
Kanoni-Pontikonissi is a modern tourist resort with several hotels and great views over the Halikiopoulos Lagoon and the airport. From Kanoni there is a footpath leading down to the Monastery of Vlacherna, where you can get a small boat which will take you to Mouse Island (Pontikonissi) with the Byzantine Church of Pantokrator. This location is one of the landmarks of Corfu and the most photographed spot.
Esplanade Square is considered to be ‘the largest square in the Balkans’. A walk around the square will lead you to Rotonda (having been built in honour of the first British Lord High Commissioner, Sir Thomas Maitland), that is nowadays a popular meeting point for young people and the bandstand where local bands and orchestras perform very frequently.
Liston: It was designed in 1807 and is the town’s most visited place, where people gather to read newspapers and drink coffee or ouzo at the old-established cafeterias. Here you may attend games of cricket in the afternoons while sipping ginger beer.
