A colorful mix of antiquity and fun in the sun, this tour takes you past the ancient landmarks of a fabled isle. Meet your guide at the pier and set off on an active half-day tour brimming with variety. Your narrated drive past some of Corfu Town's major monuments such as the Old and New Fortress and Esplanade Square introduces you to the lively atmosphere of narrow streets lined with shops and tavernas. Continuing along the coast to Paleokastritsa Village, considered by many to offer the finest scenery in the Mediterranean, you'll visit the Monastery of Agia Paraskevi. The present-day complex was erected in the 18th century and offers breathtaking views of Paleokastritsa, so grab your camera.
