Corfu is a blend of natural beauty, traditional villages and archaeological sites. At the Achilleion Palace, you'll marvel at the lush formal Italian garden and statuary, then set off to Paleokastritsa Village and Lakones Village, some of the finest scenery in the entire Mediterranean. As an alternartive to Achilleion Palace, Mon Repos Palace may be visited.
You'll pass lemon trees and a flower garden on the way to the chapel, a treasure trove of Byzantine and religious art. You'll travel to Mouse Island, the most remote island in the bay south of Kanoni, just south of Corfu Town, and capture some of the most breathtaking scenery in all of Greece. After a traditional Greek lunch, you'll arrive in Corfu Town on a guided walking tour of such sites as the Palace of St. Michael and St. George, once home to Corfu's British rulers and the Old Fortress. You're free to follow along the narrow streets and small plazas to the church of St. Spyridon.
