After a pick up from your Hotel, Airbnb apartment or Villa, hop on your comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle and get ready to relish the beauty, history and culture of Corfu!

Visit the lavishly decorated Achillion Palace and enter the world of Princess Sissi – Empress Elizabeth of Austria – who had the Palace built as her summer retreat in the 1890s! Step inside this stunning neoclassical mansion, discover the fascinating story of the ''Princess Diana of her day'' as you admire the lavish furnishings and rich variety of art works on display, as well as more personal items, including her own jewelry! Exploring the fabulous gardens, you will soon be taken on a trip through Greek mythology: marvel at the two huge figures of Achilles - the hero of the Trojan War after whom the palace was named - and visit the delightful courtyard decorated with fine sculptures of significant Greek historical figures as well as exotic trees and flowers she brought back with her from her global trips.

Leaving the Palace, experience the unparalleled beauty of Corfiot countryside blanketed with endless groves, vineyards and beautiful wild flowers as you travel to the spectacular Paleokastritsa! Take in its captivating natural beauty, combining an incredibly lush green scenery, imposing rock formations and shimmering, emerald waters! Cruise around the famous caves of the area (extra cost) or climb with your private vehicle to the 13th-century hilltop monastery and experience the heart-stopping views that lie before you!
