Stop At: Lakones
The village of Lakones is literally "hung" on the edge of the cliff. The view from above is breathtaking and is probably the most beautiful on the whole island. The green color of the olives and the pines "embraces" the endless blue of the sea and the rocky coastline and the spectacle is more than shocking. Almost all visitors to the island of Corfu visit this place to gaze at the unique view and take the most valuable photo of their lives. On a balcony of a coffee house with stunning views will have the chance enjoy a cup of traditional Greek coffee. For Greeks, drinking coffee is like washing your face in the morning, it is some kind of a morning daily ritual because of the coffee’s strong taste and aroma.

Stop At: Angelokastro
Angelokastro is one of the most historic Byzantine castles within Greece. For a short period of time, due to the fortified structure of the castle, it was the capital of Corfu. Fighters of the embattled town defended against attacks by Venetians, Turks and pirates but the castle was never occupied. In the interior of the castle, warehouses and tanks of that period are still maintained, while there are still the churches of Archangels Michael and Gabriel on top of the castle and that of Saint Kyriaki, being set in a cave. From this castle you can enjoy unparalleled views to the island of Corfu.

Stop At: Mon Repos Palace
The palace of Mon Repos was built by an English Commissioner of the Ionian Islands, Frederick Adam, in 1831. It is said that it was a gift to his beloved wife, the Corfiot Nina Palantianou, while the architect of the edifice was also an English man, Whitmore. It has large openings, of colonial style with intense Greek and neoclassical elements. Mon Repos, after the union of the Ionian Islands with Greece was granted to King George and until 1967 remained in the royal family who used it as a summer palace. Ever since, a legal battle for its ownership began, as the royal descendants claimed it as personal property, which was ultimately rejected by the Greek courts, while granting Mon Repos to the Municipality of Corfu. Today this palace houses the Museum of Palaiopoli. Mon Repos hosted the empress Elizabeth of Austria before she built the Achillion, while it is the place where, prince Philip was born who later married Elizabeth of England.
