Full description
Visit the Achillion Palace, built in 1890 by the tragic Empress Elisabeth of Austria. This magnificent palace was designed with the mythical hero Achilles as its main theme. See the massive sculptures that dominate the grounds and paintings throughout the palace that pay homage to Achilles. Relax in the Italianate terraced gardens that are planted with an array of exotic plants and trees designed in the Neo-Classical style. The center piece of the garden is the statue of Dying Achilles by the German sculptor Herter. In 1907 Kaiser Wilhelm II purchased the Achillion and continued the theme by adding the magnificent bronze statue of Achilles the Victor. After leaving the Achillion, continue your tour with a short, scenic drive to one of the most famous landmarks in Corfu, Mouse Island in the Bay of Kanoni. The final stop of the tour is Corfu Town. Visit the Old Town where the narrow, cobbled streets are known as Kantounia, the Espianada and the cricket ground. Stroll along the Liston arcades and visit the Palace of St. Michael and St. George or the Old Church of Saint Spyridon, with its priceless collection of icons and gifts offered to the Patron Saint of Corfu.

Nice tour but sometimes more information than we could take in.

Nice tour and flexible. One should have some sites they want to see ahead of time.
