Half day

NATURAL BEAUTY AND BYZANTINE PRESENCE

In this fantastic scenery, full of endless olive groves, green hills and protected coves, you will find Paleokastritsa. One of the most beautiful villages of the island, it has been characterized as the “Capri of Greece”. According to some scholars, in this area Nausica found Ulysses and also here lay the capital of the Phaeacians. At the top of a low hill you will visit the male Zoodochos Pigi Monastery, a Byzantine building dated to 1228 dedicated to the Virgin.

It includes a small museum with icons from the 15th century, as well as a traditional olive-press in the monastery’s interior. We leave Paleokastritsa headed towards cosmopolitan Kanoni. The view of Pontikonisi island and the island with the Vlacherna Monastery is enchanting, and if you have the time it is well worth watching the sunset from this spot.

Walk through the alleys of the Old Town of Corfu and on your strolls discover places of unique aesthetics. Spianada Square, the historical building of the British Governor, the Palaces of St. Michael and St. George, the Liston, the Kapodistrias Megaron, and the Church of St. Spyridon are just some of the magnificent sights of the capital.
