100% customizable tour to the Best of Corfu Town:
Have you got just a few hours and you want to see the best of Corfu Town? Book this Private Tour in Corfu Town and discover its highlights, enjoying a comprehensive and relaxing schedule adapted to your schedule and preferences.
The village of Gastouri, where the exquisite Achilleion Palace, built in 1891 by the Empress Elisabeth of Austria, offers amazing views of the Ionian Sea and the Old Town. Our customers may visit the palace gardens, which are worth it since the museum is closed for renovation so far. The palace is a unique sample of Neoclassic-Pompeian style architecture, decorated by beautiful bronze and marble sculptures of mythological inspiration.
The next stop will be at Kanoni, a must-see panoramic spot. This is one of the most famous places in Greece: a small peninsula overlooking “Mouse Island” (Pontikonissi) and the Monastery of Vlacherna, located on twin islets very close to Corfu Airport. See the airplanes landing at your eye level and say hello to the passengers!
Kanoni-Pontikonissi is a worldwide known panoramic spot, with great views over the Halikiopoulos Lagoon and the airport. There is a footpath leading down to the Monastery of Vlacherna, where you can get a small boat that 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!
Let’s continue your Private tour in Corfu Town with a walk inside the Mon Repos Estate. Built by the British in 1831, the palace became a Royal summer residence for the former Greek royal family until 1963. It was the birthplace of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, directly related to the Greek royal family. Nowadays, it hosts a museum, and the gardens around the building are impressive. The place is worth a visit if you want to travel back in time to the nineteenth and twentieth centuries magnificent times.
Passing by Garitsa Bay, your vehicle will be driving towards Corfu Old Town.
Places to see during your Private Tour in Corfu Town: The Old and New Fortress, Liston Square, Esplanade Square, the Church of Saint Spyridon – Patron Saint of the Island, The Royal Palace of Saint George and Saint Michael, Antivouniotissa Byzantine Museum, and the Synagogue.
The Esplanade Square, locally known as Plateia, is one of the largest squares in the Balkans. A walk around it will lead you to the Maitland Monument or Rotonda (built in honor of the first British Lord High Commissioner, Sir Thomas Maitland). This place today is still a popular meeting point for young people. Here you will also see the Music Pavilion, the bandstand where local bands and philharmonic orchestras perform frequently for the people’s delight.
Liston: This stately promenade 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 a ginger beer as the Brits used to do in the 19th century!
Saint Spiridon Church: Corfu’s Patron Saint is worshipped all over Eastern Europe, and the Christian Orthodox Church has a privileged place for him. Also called The Wonderworker for the many miracles he has performed throughout the centuries, his relics are kept in a silver urn and are taken in procession several times per year.
The Palace of Saint Michael and Saint George, Asian Art Museum: Built between 1819 and 1824 and commissioned by Sir Thomas Maitland, it used to be his residence but also the home of the Ionian Senate.
Corfu’s alleys and Kantounia: Don’t miss the opportunity to stroll around these lovely streets, where locals hang the laundry out to dry and many small cafes and shops can be also visited!
