Stop At: Angelokastro

Angelokastro (castle of Angels) is one of the most important fortified complexes of Byzantine Corfu. Getting to Angelokastro will require about an hour driving from Corfu town but the beauty of the area will reward you for your effort. The view from the castle is breathtaking.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Paleokastritsa Monastery

Passing through Lakones on the way to the Palaiokastritsa monastery you will see the best view of Corfu island (and according to many visitors one of Mediterranean's best) in an amazing setting of olive groves and pine trees. On a green hill above the beach of Paleokastritsa, on the north western side of Corfu, there is a large Monastery dedicated to Virgin Mary (Panagia in Greek). This monastery dominates the whole region and it offers a breathtaking view of the island and the sea below. The Paleokastritsa Monastery is believed to have been founded in the early 13th century. Although it is considered a historical site, it is still a working monastery, and it plays an important role in the life of the locals.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Kaiser's Throne

Between 1908 and the first world war, Kaiser Wilhelm II spent his summers at Achillion Palace but his favorite location was the village of Pelekas where he wants to build the Achillion palace in the first place. It’s not difficult to understand why. Standing at his “throne” you have a 360-degree panoramic view of the island and one of the most impressive sunsets.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Mirtiotissa Beach

The local cuisine has been catalytically influenced by the 411 years of Venetian occupation. Our tour includes a visit to a small local family-owned restaurant where the cook(restaurant owner) learned all the traditional Corfiot cuisines secrets from his mother and grandmother. The homegrown vegetables and poultry, the wooden oven, the original Corfiot cuisine recipes that passed from great grandmother to mother & son and the owners' passion for authenticity are the reasons why we choose this restaurant.

Duration: 50 minutes
