To learn how this Asian fruit came to the island is a real eye-opener.'You'll visit some of Corfu's top attractions. First up is Achillion Palace. The palace boasts stirring views of the Corfu coast, and the meticulously landscaped gardens are a work of art. Spiros adds, ‘Empress Sissi of Austria was enamoured with Corfu and its mythological heritage, particularly the story of Achilles, and the palace and gardens are filled with sculptures of Greek gods and goddesses.' The vistas are also top-notch at the seaside village of Paleokastritsa. You'll have free time to visit the Orthodox monastery – admission is free – or the many coves with beautiful beaches. A boat trip can also be arranged here.Plus, you'll get to sample the trademark flavour of rural Corfu. There's a visit to a family-owned kumquat distillery. Here, you'll learn everything there is to know about this exotic citrus fruit. Marmalade, soda drinks and syrup are just some of the products made from kumquat. But it's the sweet and fragrant liqueur – often sold in Corfu-shaped bottles – that's become an island icon.

Dominating the city from its hilltop perch, you'll get fantastic views over the harbour, the bay and the terracotta rooftops of the town.Once you've had time to soak up that wonderful panorama, it's back down to the town for an afternoon of free time.

Where to go

Greece

Things to do in Corfu

The ancients knew a good thing when they saw one. And Corfu, the setting of so many classical legends, hasn’t looked back since. Haloed by beautiful beaches and with a spine of hills dotted with remote villages, it’s a work of art. The island’s capital also happens to boast Greece’s most untypical UNESCO listing and former palaces of Austrian, German and Greek royalty. What’s more, Corfu’s location means that day trips to the mainland, Albania and the islands of Paxos and Antipaxos are just short hops away. Top six things to do in Corfu 1. Visit the Achilleion Palace As one of Corfu’s most popular attractions, the Achilleion Palace is best visited as part of a skip-the-line tour. This elegant retreat was built by tragic Empress Sisi of Austria and later bought by Germany’s last Kaiser. Climbing up the elaborately decorated main staircase is like stepping back in time to the Belle Époque. While the statue-studded terraced gardens offer views of Corfu city, the Ionian Sea and mainland Greece. 2. Cosmopolitan Corfu Town The island’s capital is a melting pot of cultures, as can be seen in its impressive architecture. Ruled by Venice for centuries before coming under French and then British control, it wears its cosmopolitanism on its sleeve. This eclecticism has earned it the status of UNESCO World Heritage Site – all other UNESCO sites in Greece are either classical or religious. The two Venetian fortresses are must-sees as are the French-era Liston and the British-built Palace of St Michael and St George. And just outside the Old Town is the Mon Repos Estate, birthplace of the late Duke of Edinburgh. 3. Head to Paleokastritsa Northern Corfu is all hills and rustic villages with a coastline that’s a medley of long sandy beaches, secluded coves and steep cliffs. But even among all these natural attractions, there’s one spot that stands out from the crowd. Paleokastritsa is a little gem. It’s built around three coves sheltered by tree-studded headlands. The star turn is the hilltop monastery, where flowery pergolas and arched passageways vie for your attention with Orthodox icons and eye-popping coastal views. It’s easy to see why medieval monks found it heavenly. 4. Hop on the boat to Butrint Just a short ferry trip away from Corfu is Albania, one of Europe’s most enigmatic countries. It makes for a fascinating day trip but best of all, you come across one of its top attractions almost the moment you land. UNESCO-listed Butrint boasts archaeological remains from the Greek, Roman, Byzantine and Venetian eras. Tours from Corfu bring you to the site and usually include stops in nearby villages. 5. Go on an excursion to Paxos and Antipaxos The islands of Paxos and Antipaxos to the south of Corfu are the embodiment of laidback Greek island life. Paxos, the larger of the two, is all secluded coves and waterfronts of pastel-coloured buildings. Sipping on a drink watching the boats glide in at a harbourside taverna in Gaios, the largest village, is one of life’s little pleasures. While tiny Antipaxos has about 20 full time residents and offers some of the prettiest beaches in the Ionian Sea. Tranquillity down to a T. 6. Ionian idyll The sheltered harbour village of Sivota on the Greek mainland is bathed by some of the clearest waters in the Ionian. Four tree-clad uninhabited islands lie just off Sivota, each hosting some of the best beaches around. Many boat trips take in the most enticing of these, such as Bella Vraka – which can be waded to from Sivota as the water is so shallow – and the jewel in the crown, Blue Lagoon beach. Secluded and backed by a dense forest, it can only be reached by boat.
