What you will visit:
Paleokastritsa
This picturesque village is situated in the northwest of Corfu, nestled into a rugged coastline. Also known as the "Capri of Greece," the natural beauty of Paleokastritsa charms with its small, sandy bays and crystal-clear turquoise waters sparkling in the sun. The seaside village is built among a string of lemon, olive and cypress groves and surrounded by spectacular Mediterranean vistas and stunning beaches.

The female Monastery of Agia Paraskevi founded in the 17th century. It is located above Palaiokastritsa at a panoramic location. The Monastery's Katholikon is a simple Basilica and houses post-Byzantine and Ionian-style icons. It celebrates the memory of Agia Paraskevi on 26th July with the participation of all nearby villages

What you will see along the way:
Paleokastritsa Sea Caves
Nafsika, Saint Nikolas and the Blue Eye are a series of sea caves carved into the cliffs of Paleokastritsa. Visible only by boat, these grottoes are natural, geological formations that when struck by sunlight emanate amazing colors and optical illusions.
