Achilleion is a palace built for the Empress Elisabeth of Austria, also known as Sisi." Elizabeth was deeply saddened by the tragic loss of her only son, following and a year later she had this summer palace built as a refuge. Achilleion is located about ten kilometres south of the city of Corfu and provides a panoramic view of the city to the north, and across the whole southern part of the island to the Ionian sea. The architectural style was designed to suggest an ancient palace of mythical Phaeacia. The motif centers on the hero Achilles, from which the name is derived. Corfu was Elisabeth's favourite vacation destination and she wanted a palace to gratify her admiration for Greece, its language and its culture.

Places to be
Corfu town" The second-largest Ionian Island has seen the Byzantines, Venetians, French and British come and go over the last 1,000 years, and all these cultures have left something behind. If you need a place to begin, try the World Heritage Old Town of Corfu City, which is guarded by two mighty Venetian fortresses that withstood everything that the Ottoman Empire could throw at them. A city packed tight between two fortresses, Corfu’s Old Town is a knot of walkable streets and alleys between Venetian and Neoclassical houses painted pale yellow and orange. Corfu’s coast is sprinkled with resorts, some more appealing than others. But if you’re a free spirit you can get behind the wheel and set a course for secluded coves, sweeping sandy beaches and castles and monasteries stranded on rocky pedestals.

Esplanade and Liston, Between the Old Town and the old fortress" is the esplanade, a long green square that is a remnant of the Venetian fortifications in the 17th century. During the French occupation of Corfu at the turn of the 19th century the esplanade was planted with trees, while the cricket pitch is a holdover from the British period that followed. Also dating to that time is the Maitland Monument, a Neoclassical peristyle, with 20 Ionic columns around a rotunda, commemorating the Lord High Commissioner Thomas Maitland. The Liston, on the Esplanade’s western boundary is an elegant arcade, also from the French period and designed in the style of the Rue de Rivoli in Paris.

Vlacherna  One of Corfu’s signature images" the Vlacherna Monastery is on an islet at the end of a narrow jetty off the southern end of the Kanoni Peninsula. The chapel, which you enter beneath a typical campanile, dates to 1685 and has tomb monuments going back to the middle of the 18th century.

Canal d' amour in Sidari is unique for its otherworldly rock formations" At Canal d’Amour there’s a long, almost rectangular creek with layered, sand-coloured walls. The sea has weathered the rock, and near the entrance to the creek is a tunnel. Pick a day when the sea is calm (which is most days in summer) and you can swim through the tunnel. The local custom says that any couples who swim through together will soon get married, so swim at your own risk. Further out the water is a little deeper, and you can watch brave divers jumping off the cliffs.

Issos Beach is an open bay bordering Lake Korission to the south of the island" Traced by dunes, the golden sand at Issos seems to go on forever. If you want a bit more life and amenities close at hand you can stay close to the resort village of Agios Georgios on the east end. But you can also walk west and within a few minutes you’ll have broken away from the crowds. Further from civilisation, Issos Beach is also popular with naturists, while the reliable winds attract windsurfers and kite-surfers.
