Corfu Palaces Tour

Travel back in time to the years when European royals and aristocrats chose Corfu as their favorite destination. Since the early 1800s, many fell in love with the beauties of the island, where they found a perfect retreat to escape from court duties while maintaining their status of luxury and glamour. Join our Corfu Palaces Private Tour and discover their summer homes and residences.

ACHILLEION PALACE

During this tour, you will be driven along the bay of Garitsa to the area of Paleopolis, the ancient city of Corfu, and Mon Repos Palace. We will make a stop in Kanoni, a point with great views of the landmarks of Corfu, namely the picturesque Mouse Island and the Monastery of Vlacherna. The Achilleion Palace and the Palace of Saint Michael and Saint George are also included in our route.

CORFU CITY OLD TOWN (6)

Our tour includes a visit to Gastouri village, located on the slopes above the southeast coast of the island. We will reach the Achilleion Palace, built by Empress Elisabeth “Sissy” of Austria in 1891, and later owned by Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany. Visit the rooms of the Palace and the beautiful gardens offering spectacular views over the Ionian Sea. The gardens are full of exotic trees and flowers and boast beautiful statues of Neoclassical style.

ACHILLEION PALACE

The Empress was very fond of Ancient History and Mythology, which you can also discover strolling around the premises. The Peristyle of the Muses, decorated with Carrara marble statues of the Nine Greek Muses, and the imposing figures of Victorious Achilles  and Dying Achilles are some of the most remarkable pieces. The small bronzes representing other mythological characters are also very interesting and well-performed.

ACHILLEION PALACE (8)

Continuing our tour, we will follow the path leading to Mon Repos Palace on Analipsi hill. The gardens in the property are full of exotic trees, bushes, flowers, and shrubs, once having been brought as gifts by diplomats and kings from all over the world.

Did you know that Prince Philip of Edinburgh was born here?

The palace was built in 1828 – 1831 by the British Commissioner of the Ionian Islands, Sir Frederick Adam, as a gift to his beautiful Corfiot wife. In 1864 it was offered as a present to the King of Greece, George A’, and since then, it became the summer residence of the Royal Family. Here, they used to celebrate great parties with their royal friends from all around the world, as well as wedding proposals!
This is also one of the reasons why Corfu Island became such a popular summer holiday destination for the international jet set.

You can’t miss a tour of the rooms of the palace, housing ancient artifacts brought to light by archaeologists during excavations in the past.

MON REPOS PALACE (1)

The impressive Palace of Saint Michael and Saint George is the biggest palace in Corfu. It was erected in Corfu Town for Sir Thomas Maitland, Lord High Commissioner of the Ionian Islands from 1815 to 1823. Visit the beautiful colonnade and the People’s Gardens, overlooking the north of Corfu and the Albanian coast. The palace is home to the Museum of Asian Art, which has more than 9.000 artifacts brought from China, Japan, India, Nepal, Tibet, Pakistan, and Northeast Asia by Greek ambassadors.

    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.
