Experience the island's highlights on a narrated scenic drive. From the port, your motorcoach drives past the New Fortress – a mere 500 years old, before stopping at the Old Fortress for views of the town, the Palace of St. Michael and St. George, the Esplanade and the cricket pitch. Driving along the coastal road, you’ll reach the site of Perama, where you’ll stop to take photographs of the famous views of Mouse Island.
Continue towards the village of Lakones for a view of the Paleokastritsa and take a few more memorable photos before returning to the port. You'll also stop at a Koum Kouat distillery where you’ll see a small exhibition of antique distillery equipment and sample the product. The Koum Kouat citrus fruit, a variety which only grows in Corfu, is made into one of the island's most famous products, a liqueur with the same name, plus fruit preserved sweets. You’ll also have the opportunity to purchase local liquors before returning to your ship.
