Product Image
Embark on a scenic drive and visit the highlights of Corfu Island, topped off with a treat of an authentic Greek lunch.

Embark on a scenic drive to Paleokastritsa village, the mythical island of the Phaeacians, regarded as one of the most attractive areas in all the Mediterranean. In the settlement's area, there are six small coves and seven beaches separated by round-shaped capes. With its incredible turquoise water and rugged coastline draped in olive and lemon trees; you cannot fail to be impressed. Just a short drive away, perched on a cliff, you'll find The Virgin Mary Monastery, the 18th-century complex offering unrivaled views of the area.

Continuing to the village of Gastouri, you'll visit the Achilleion Palace (the colonial palace from the James Bond movie 'For Your Eyes Only') and explore the hill-top gardens containing statues such as the dramatic Dying Achilles (built in the 1890s as a summer palace for Elisabeth von Wittelsbach, Empress of Austria). The views from the village are spectacular.

The setting for your traditional lunch will be a local restaurant in the nearby village of Kinopiastes. Here you can relax with a glass of wine. After lunch in Kinopiastes, you will visit the elegant and charming Corfu Town, including a visit to St. Spyridon Church, a single nave basilica with the highest bell tower in the Ionian Islands. The church is home to the relics of Saint Spyridon, a shepherd who used all his substance for the needs of his neighbors while healing those who were incurably sick.
