Full description
Avoid the crowds of tourists that descend upon Achilleion, one of Greece's busiest museums, in the morning and early afternoon and enjoy a more relaxed early evening tour. Benefit from cooler temperatures and take a stroll in the palace's lush gardens away from the sweltering midday heat.

Explore the magnificent summer residence of Empress Elisabeth of Austria, also known as Princess Sissy. Listen to your guide as they narrate the story of the residence and guide you around the different halls. Admire exquisite art pieces and furnishings, followed by a stroll around the gardens. Here, see statues of great Greek figures, the “Peristyle of the Muses” as well as the iconic statue of Achilles, the Homeric hero of the Iliad.
