Departure Time

9:00 AM
Leave your Corfu hotel or Corfu cruise port by private, air-conditioned vehicle, and travel to Paleokastritsa on the west coast. Set around a steep-sided, wooded bay of five picture-perfect coves, this scenic area is one of Corfu’s beauty spots.

Admire the scenery, and visit the Monastery of the Blessed Virgin Mary overlooking the bay. Founded in 1225, this working monastery’s buildings date from the 18th century, and comprise a courtyard, monks’ cells, chapel, and museum. Admire the two-level bell tower, one of Corfu’s most photographed sights, and visit the museum to see its religious treasures.

Hear about Corfu's periods under the Venetians, French, and British — a medley of rulers that have shaped its architecture and monuments.

The last stop is the village of Kassiopi, in the northeastern portion of the island. Explore the small village and its harbor, where you can gaze out across the water and see the Albanian coast. Enjoy a snack or meal at one of the many cafes and restaurants stocked with fresh fish (at your own expense).

Your tour ends at the original start point.
