Corfu is one of the most beautiful destinations in Greece, characterized by wonderful natural landscapes to explore and as many places where you can retrace the history of the island. In Corfu you can visit the sumptuous palace of Princess Sissi, admire the special white cliffs of Capo Drastis and spend wonderful days between rest and adventure in the crystal clear beaches of Paleokastritsa. Greece Euro Greek Image Image Image Achilles Palace The Achilles Palace, located a few kilometers from the city of Corfu, is a sumptuous building established in 1890 by Empress Elisabeth of Austria, better known as Princess Sissi. The palace, which was used by the latter as a summer residence to take refuge in a place of peace and well-being, is characterized by a luxurious decor worthy of an empress, and has a neoclassical style, which echoes the tradition of ancient Greece. In fact, the palace was also named in honor of Achilles, of whom there is an imposing statue in the gardens. Image Paleokastritsa beach Paleokastritsa beach is considered the most beautiful beach in Corfu, and according to mythology it is the place where the meeting between Ulysses and Nausicaa took place. Actually, with this name we mean five different bays and six coves located close to each other and bathed by a sea. It is therefore a perfect place for anyone: both for those looking for refreshment on a traditional beach, but also for the more adventurous who want to dive into the most rocky coasts. On site there are also taxi-boat services that allow you to move between the different beaches and discover the hidden places not reachable by land. Image Cape Drastis Cape Drastis is the northeastern cape of the island of Corfu. This place is known for its special white striped cliffs with particular elongated shapes. The main peninsula looks almost like the head of a big turtle, surrounded by smaller rocks that look like small turtles swimming around it. You can admire Capo Drastis from the top of a promontory or, alternatively, visit the cliffs by boat, but only when the weather is good: in fact, in this area of the island there are often strong winds that are also what gave shape to the cliffs.
