What to expect


vanakee corfu private tours paleokastritsa

paleokastritsa tour
Paleokastritsa is arguably the most famous picturesque village of the island of Corfu, located 25 km northwest of Corfu Town. The word Paleokastritsa literally means old fortress, witnessing the existence of such a castle on the rocky cave where the Monastery of the Virgin now stands. This cosmopolitan resort stretches along a coastal road around stunning bays and a picturesque harbor where the excursion boats depart for the nearby and isolated beaches. At the end of the road, right after the main harbor is the Monastery of the Virgin that dominates the village. The monastery hosts an interesting collection of post Byzantine icons, books and other objects. There, you will discover precious icons from, the 15th century.

Corfu old town

vanakee corfu private tours corfu old town

corfu palace

Corfu Town, especially the old part, is one of the most charming and romantic places in all of Greece. It is a perfect example of ancient Venetian and Byzantine art that will fascinate you with its' little streets and panoramic view points. Surrounded by the sea, the old town of Kerkyra (Corfu) is situated between the two ancient fortresses. Walking between high old houses, you can buy traditional products in ancient cellars, surrounded by stone staircases, old Venetian walls and hidden gardens. Every single building and street will appear like an open museum, but the joie de vivre of the local people will remind you that the old town is also full of life and full of surprises. The paved streets and the ancient buildings will bring you to the large beautiful esplanade and the romantic gallery of Liston. A place that you must visit whilst you're on our beautiful island.

Achillion Palace

achilleion museum

The Achillion Palace can be found in the Village of Gastouri, 10 km’s south west of the town of Corfu. The stunning appearance of this stately palace takes the visitor back in history to when the palace was inhabited by two great figures from European history whose only common bond was their adoration for Corfu, Greece and its cultural figures, Empress Elisabeth of Austria (known as 'Sissi') and Kaiser William II of Germany. Wandering through the fabulous gardens, you will be taken on a trip through Greek mythology as you walk between the numerous statues of Greek historical figures, including the nine muses, Greek philosophers and of course Achilles – the hero of Greek mythology after whom the palace was named.


vanakee corfu private tours kanoni

The location of Kanoni with the church of PanagiaVlacherna and Mouse Island (Pontikonissi), are the most famous and photographed spots of Corfu. Legend has it, that Mouse Island was formed when the ship that had taken Odysseus back to Ithaca, his home port, was turned into stone by Poseidon, God of the Sea, who was angry at being defied by the Phaeacians. You can often see an airplane landing and taking off from this spot, as the airport of Corfu is right next to the church.
