On this tour you will:

  • Board your air-conditioned motorcoach for an approximately half-hour ride to the Achilleion Palace, named for the mythical hero Achilles and built in by Empress of Austria Elisabeth of Bavaria, also known as Sisi, after a suggestion by Austrian Consul Alexander von Watzberg.
  • Enjoy an approximately one-hour guided tour through the 19th century Achilles-themed palace and gardens.
  • Hear the legend of Achilles, the hero of the Trojan war and said to be a demigod.
  • Reboard your motorcoach for a quick ride into Corfu town for an approximate 45-minute guided walking tour starting in the town square, through old town, and into the 300-year-old Church of Saint Spayridon featuring priceless icons and mosaics.
  • Arrive at a local art gallery, where kids will join Disney Cruise Line Youth Counselors on a fun-filled workshop, where they’ll learn about the colors once present in ancient Greek statues and get to paint their very own memento of their visit to the Corfu, a statue of Achilles. During this approximate 50-minute activity, parents have the option to enjoy free time in town to shop and peruse the ancient streets.
  • Reunite with your group and take a short walk to reboard the motorcoach for an approximately 25-minute trip back to the port.
