Palaces and monuments on the outskirts of Corfu Town

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 Dying Achilleas is an excellent sample of Neoclassic Art.

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!

Vlacherna Monastery and Pontikonissi

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.

The Best of Corfu Town

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.

    Excellent transportation company.
    We hire them for all the transfers in our company vacation trip in Corfu.
    The buses were new and good, the drivers were professional and nice.

    We went on the paxos parga cruise. We had a great time and it was well worth the money. Parga was absolutely gorgeous and l can recommend the captains bar on the sea front for a cold drink, or something to eat. As their prices, are very reasonable.
