Experience Corfu's most enchanting landmarks, colorful villages and breathtaking views of the island on this delightful tour. After an approximate 30 minute drive, you’ll first stop at the beautiful spot of Paleokastritsa that offers splendid views of the area's multiple bays. It’s said that Odysseus met Nausica after he washed ashore at one of these bays. Here you’ll visit the Monastery of the Virgin and its small museum. Your tour will continue towards the village of Lakones where you can look down on the Paleokastritsa and take memorable pictures. While continuing your drive to Mount Pantokrator, you’ll get the feeling that the entire island of Corfu is spread below your feet.


You'll pass various Corfiot villages, then walk through the beautiful fishing village of Kassiopi and enjoy a typical Greek lunch. After lunch you’ll explore the northeast coastline via the village of Nissaki and the coastal resorts of Barbati, Ipsos, Dassia, Gouvia and Kontokali. As you reach the Old Town of Corfu, you’ll have a chance to admire from the comfort of your motorcoach, the architecture of the beautiful mansions, the Byzantine churches, the old fortress, the Palaces of St. Michael and St. George and the lively Esplanade Square, before your return to the pier.
