Our top 3 excursion destinations in Corfu
1. Ancient fortress in the capital Kerkira
A visit to the Old Fortress is a must if you visit the capital of Corfu. The entrance fee is low and you can spend quite some time here. A small tip: dare to leave the main road. The fortress has some hidden corners that stir imagination like only old fortresses can.
2. Achilleion – Sisis holiday castle
We went to this small castle when it was pouring down. The Achilleion is located on a small mountain and from here you have a nice view over the island. It was certainly a bit busier in the museum because of the rain, but we could still get an impression of Sisi’s little paradise. As a Sisi fan, the path through the garden was a “must do” despite therain. It dawned on me very quickly why the Empress of Austria felt so comfortable here.
3. New Fortress in Kerkira
The New Fortress in Kerkira is slightly elevated and offers a spectacular view over the city. We were not asked for an entrance fee on our visit but this changes during peak seasons where a small fee has to be paid.
