Full description
Explore Corfu at your own pace on a private tour where you set the starting time and place! Start with a visit to Achilleion Palace, located atop a hill in the traditional village of Gastouri. Experience a sense of awe as you take in the imposing monument and its surrounding cypress trees and exotic plants and flowers.

Go inside the palace for a closer look at the beautiful gardens, and discover priceless works of art, such as the ancient Greek statues of Zeus and Era. Admire the elegant columns and statuary, including the statue of the "Dying Achilles."

Continue to Kanoni for a breathtaking view of Mouse Island (‘Pontikonisi’), formed, according to legend, when the ship that carried Odysseus back to Ithaca was turned to stone by an angry Poseidon. Next, go to the small but popular beach at Paleokastritsa, where you can catch a boat to cruise around the many caves in the area. Alternatively, soak up the sun and cool down with a dip in the crystal clear waters.

Visit the Monastery of the Virgin Mary of Paleokastritsa and discover the home of 8 Greek Orthodox monks who receive guidance from Bishop Efthimios Thouis and conduct traditional masses, provide generous hospitality and offer regular tours of the grounds and museum. Return towards Corfu city with a drive along the scenic west coast via the hilltop village of Lakones. Stop at the "Bella Vista" viewpoint to take some souvenir photos and gather memories to last a lifetime!
