Day tour around Corfu from cruise port combined with a delicious Greek meal. If you have enough time for a full day program, this shore excursion offers a complete overview of the island, combining tradition, greek cuisine,art, nature and religious history. Especially recommended to amateurs of photography!

Depart the port of Corfu with direction Achillion Palace. Upon arrival, leave your motorcoach and follow your guide to visit the famous Palace, which was constructed in 1892 for the Empress Elisabeth of Austria. This ill-fated Empress obsessed by the Greek hero, Achilles, commissioned a statue of Achilles “Dying”. In 1907, the Palace was bought by Kaiser William II of Germany, who erected a contrasting statue, of Achilles “Triumphant”. Today, both statues are still standing in the gardens. 

As you drive inland, see the traditional villages before arriving at beautiful Palaeokastritsa where you will visit the 13th Century Monastery of the Virgin Mary, located on top of a hill. From here, drive through Bella Vista where time for pictures of the panoramic view will be offered. There you will enjoy a delicious 3courses meal in selected taverna.

Leave Bella Vista and drive to the traditional village of Makrades. There a stop of ½ hour will be offered.

On your way back to the port, stop in Corfu Town and visit on foot as well as the St. Spyridon Church, the patron saint of Corfu, or for those who would like, stroll through the numerous narrow balconied streets.

After a pleasant day on the island of Corfu, return back to the ship
