Your scenic drive will take you into the village of Gastouri where you will visit the Achilleion Palace. Enjoy the stunning views and explore the carefully manicured hill top gardens containing statues such as the dramatic Dying Achilles.
High in the mountains of Corfu and nestled in a beautiful green camouflage of tall pine, cypress and olive trees is the stunning traditional village of Kato Garouna. Visit the small municipal museum which is housed in an old olive oil factory where the mill is still in place and see how the olive oil was made. The last remaining traditional craftswomen will also demonstrate the old art of carpet weaving. At the end of your visit you will be given some free time to explore this beautiful rural village.
A welcome refreshment stop for a glass of local wine with traditional snack of fresh bread with olive oil, feta cheese, olives and salami will be made in a local taverna. A brief photo stop will be made near the Old Fortress of Corfu to take in the beautiful Old Town. Please note that this excursion does not include a guided tour of the town, however you may wish to remain in town and make your own way back to the ship, if you choose to do so, please ensure that you advise your guide.
