Achillion Palace - Kanoni

Features

3Hours
1 - 8 Guests

Description

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 culture, 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.

The location of Kanoni with the church of PanagiaVlacherna below and the 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, angry at being defied by the Phaeacians. It is also very frequent that you see an airplane landing and taking off from this spot, as the airport of Corfu is right next to the church.
