LOCATION Corfu, Greece

Pickup Service

Following a pick up from your hotel or Corfu port, board your private, air-conditioned vehicle and set off to explore Corfu's top landmarks and must-see attractions!

Start your day with a visit to the impressive Achillion Palace- the colonial palace featured in the popular James Bond movie ''For Your Eyes Only''! Set atop a steep coastal hill in the traditional village of Gastouri, this 19th-century mansion was built as the summer residence of Austria’s Empress Elizabeth, aka "Princess Sissi" and later owned by Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany. Entering the palace, discover the fascinating story of the “Sad Empress”, as you witness her personal belongings and marvel at the sumptuous furnishings and beautiful frescoes. Strolling through the beautiful gardens, stand with awe in front of the two huge figures of Achilles - the hero of the Trojan War after whom the palace was named - and visit the delightful courtyard to admire the fine statues of the Nine Muses, Greek philosophers and poets.

Leaving Achillion, drive by the coastal resort of Perama, and enjoy the short ride to the peninsula of Kanoni and the iconic Mouse Island. Looking down from your vantage point, marvel at the most photographed image of Corfu: the tiny island of Vlacherna, on which stands a traditional white Greek church, and behind it the Mouse Island with its beautiful green tufts of trees. If you are lucky, you might also watch planes landing and taking off right next to you as Kanoni is located just next to the airport! Make sure that you take your camera out to capture these amazing views before you move on to the historical center of Corfu old town.

No Corfu tour is complete without a visit to the UNESCO-recognised Corfu Town, widely considered one of the most beautiful towns of Greece! Discover what makes this city so special as you lose yourself in the winding narrow cobbled streets, marvel at the captivating Venetian architecture and immerse in the city's vibrant atmosphere. Take time to visit the city's highlights including the Palace of St. Michael and St. George, the Town Hall, and the 300-year old St. Spyridon Church, housing the relics of the Patron Saint of the Island. Stand in the impressive Spianada Square, the biggest in Greece, and climb to the top of the Old Fortress to enjoy heart-stopping views of Corfu Town. Get your keepsake from your trip to Corfu from the welcoming souvenir shops or pause to savor a coffee under the arcades of the elegant Liston, built by the French in the 19th century based on the Rue de Rivoli in Paris.

By the time you finish your Corfu Private tour, you will have discovered the best of Corfu! Get back on your private vehicle and enjoy a comfortable journey back to your hotel or Corfu port!
