Your journey begins as you stroll through the neo-classical Achilleion Palace, designed and built for the Empress Elisabeth of Austria. After the assassination of the Empress in 1898, Kaiser Wilhelm II owned the palace. Outside you'll discover formal Italian gardens.

These may include the old and new fortresses (which bear the insignia of the Venetian Republic)the Esplanade (planted with palms and eucalyptus by the French)the English cricket pitch, the Palace of St. Michael and St. George(now a museum, but once home to Corfu's British rulers).
