Full description
Benefit from pick-up at your hotel or other location of your choice, and then travel through some of Corfu’s traditional villages on a private group tour to Paleokastritsa. Long considered one of the most beautiful villages in Corfu, Paleokastritsa is renowned as a beauty spot with turquoise waters and sandy beaches in its network of bays with jagged rocks topped by lush green forests that rise directly from the sea. Go to Theotokos Monastery via a short footpath that takes you to the top of the hill. Get the best views of the area from the summit, and then journey into Corfu Town. Take a stroll through Spianada Square to admire the British-era City Palace, the Venetian castle of the Old Fortress and the arcades of the Liston, built during the French occupation if the island and charmingly lit by Venetian lanterns. Visit Saint Spyridon Church, built in 1596, where the distinctive red dome of the bell tower, filled with silver treasures, is the tallest on the island. Amble down the narrow streets of the Old Town and interact with the locals as you purchase local produce such as kumquats from traditional shops. Your driver will be waiting to take you back to your hotel to get dropped off safely at the end of the day.

We could not go to Peleokastritsa because the guide said the road was bad due to the rains of the past few days and instead suggested a tour to the Achilleon which we accepted. He was very friendly, but he parked in front of the Achilleon and we went in alone. Then we drove to Kanoni (5 minutes stay) and then to Corfu town, where we had about 2 hours (unfortunately a little too little). It was difficult to find him at the port. He was not outside at the bus terminal, but inside.
