Corfu Port Review
Corfu Island is steeped in history and ancient Greek Mythology. The Old Town of Corfu is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Known for many things, Corfu is a lush, sunshine resort destination for many years. One of the main attractions is the Achilleion Palace built by Empress of Austria Elisabeth of Bavaria, also known as Sisi, as a summer getaway from the intrigue of her palace life. It sits on top of a hill overlooking the Ionian Sea and has many historic treasures on display. The gardens are renown for its flowers and iconic statues. One the way back to Corfu town we stopped at a lookout near the airport. From there, we saw the Monastery of the Virgin Mary on a small island in a small bay. Finally, we spent the afternoon wandering the streets of Corfu Old Town and having a light lunch at one of its many outdoor cafes. The waiter moved our table into the middle of the street so we could catch the sun. The pictures below will tell the story of our wonderful day in Corfu.
Trivia tidbit - Did you know that Prince Philip of England was born in Corfu?
