О-в Корфу

Corfu spells endless natural beauty and is an island of song and music, of unending inspiration, a compelling combination of the cosmopolitan and the traditional. After Cephalonia, Corfu is the second largest of the Greek Ionian islands. From the pristine beaches to lush vegetation, the island will leave holiday-makers with unforgettable memories and enduring images.

ACHILLEION’ S PALACE

 

Цена: € 51 на възрастен, € 36 на дете

 

Duration: approx. 4 hours

 

Corfu marked the final stage of the legendary trip made by the mythological Greek God, Ulysses on his return Ithaca. We will not have such an epic journey, although we will travel around the island admiring Corfu’s lush landscapes. The excursion includes a visit to the Achilleion’s Palace, former residence of Queen Elizabeth of Austria, and a richly decorated home set in pretty gardens overlooking the sea. The Palace is dedicated to another Greek hero, Achilles. Return into Corfu town for a short visit with free time to stroll around.

PALEOKASTRITZA

 

Цена: € 39 на възрастен, € 27 на дете

 

Duration: approx. 4 hours

 

After leaving the port of Corfu, a short and scenic drive takes you through the island’s interior, which is characterised by orange groves, cypress and pine trees, to the west coast and the beautiful bay of Palaiokastritsa just south of Angelokastro. You will have a chance to visit Palaiokastritsa’s Byzantine Monastery, which is situated high up on a rocky promontory with gorgeous views of the island and the Ionian Sea. While the monastery was originally founded in the early 13th-century, the current complex dates from the 18th century and is still home to a handful of monks even today. The monastery church is ornately painted with icons and frescoes covering the walls and ceilings. On returning to Corfu town, you will have time to explore the vicinity on your own before returning to the ship.

Please note: this excursion is not a beach tour but it offers the possibility to do a brief stop on the beach for those guests who won't be interested in the Monastery visit. The beach does not offer any kind of infrastructure.

 

 

 

BOAT TOUR

 

Цена: € 84 на възрастен, € 59 на дете

 

Duration: approx. 5 hours

 

Board a motorboat for a pleasure cruise along the coast past Corfu’s picturesque old town, historical port district and the city’s 16th-century Venetian fortification, known as the New Fortress because there is also an even older one. The tour then continues on to the islet of Pontikos, a tiny patch of land near the coast that is colloquially known as Mouse Island due to an optical illusion, as a result of which a white staircase on the isle resembles a mouse’s tail from afar. A photo stop will be made at Vlacherna Monastery. A further stop at Corfu town’s Faliraki quarter will give you a chance to have a drink and watch the world go by at a café. The final call on your tour is the tiny island of Vido at the mouth of Corfu port. You will have time to relax and swim in the Ionian Sea.

Please note: the excursion is planned from June through all September.
