Corfu: Old Perithia Ghost Village Tour with Private Driver

1. Corfu: Old Perithia Ghost Village Tour with Private Driver

Enjoy the ride to Old Perithia with your own personal driver. Spend two hours exploring the abandoned ghost town at your own pace. On the drive to Old Perithia, your driver will tell you about the waterfront villages you pass by, and what you can expect on arrival in the abandoned town. Built during the 14th century in the Pantokrator mountainsides, Old Perithia buzzed with life until locals decided it was time for a sea change and moved to more popular coastal locations. The village went to ruin and became a ghost town. Enjoy pleasant moderate hiking around the Venetian-style village with its 8 churches. Walk around the abandoned buildings and enter some of the ruins for a glimpse of ancient history. The views from Old Perithia are stunning, and it is a favored spot for hikers and painters who appreciate its natural beauty. Today you will find some restaurants serving local dishes where you can enjoy a traditional meal. After two hours of free time in this amazing village, your driver will take you back to your hotel, passing by other traditional villages of Corfu. Also, stop at Kassiopi village for a coffee break and to admire the view.

Adenture! Very good and knowledgeble woman driver - amazing landmarks and fantastic lunch in old greek village , highly recommended if you want to see beautiful Corfu from the highest part of island and like travelling off roads- also if you like home made excellent greek food in taverna In the middle of nowhere( the best „ in the middle of nowhere I’ve ever seen) Lovely nature and comfortable travelling.

Brilliant day with Nikos on this tour. The off road journey up Mt. Pantocrator is not to be missed for it's great views and hair raising bends,not to mention the wonderful mountain air. Very good lunch of typical corfiot food at the (not so) deserted village. We were a 75yr+ couple and found the terrain was no problem. Would do this again any day ,time and budget permitting A big thanks to all.

Our guide was great! He told exciting things and drove us safely along the off-road paths to great vantage points. It was a super great experience and we were able to see Corfu from a different side. Definitely recommended, also because it was only a small group of 6 people.

The guide and driver vicky was great, he entertained us with various stories and told about the customs of corfu and some villages. Recommended

What a beautiful views on this trip! Loved our guide!
