Description

Hop on the City Sightseeing Achilleion Line and discover another side of this fantastic island. The bus explores the city of Corfu before heading south to the delights of the Achilleion Palace, which enjoys spectacular views over Corfu city, the south of the island and the Ionian Sea.

So, if you’re hopping on the Achilleion Line, you just have to hop off at the palace, one of Corfu’s architectural highlights. This incredible summer palace was built for Empress Elizabeth of Austria at the end of the 19th century, as a place where she could escape to after the death of her son. It was built in the imagined style of a mythological Greek palace and its gardens are full of statues of Achilles, which give the palace its name. It’s a must-see destination.

Another great place to hop off is in Gastouri, a small peaceful village, which is very close to Achilleion. Back in the city, somewhere unmissable to hop off is Spianada, a large open square in the old part of the city. It’s a great place to enjoy a stroll or maybe stop for a coffee. While there, make sure you check out the Old Fortress, which was built in the early 15th century on a site that dates back to the 6th century and had been used by the island’s various conquerors to protect the city. In the shadow of the fortress, stands the Church of St George, which looks more like an Ancient Greek temple than a Christian church.

To explore the old town, hop off at Spilia Square, where you’ll be able to find Spilia Gate, which is in the entrance way to the old part of the city. Here you can explore to your heart’s content before hopping back on the bus and continuing to discover Corfu.
