Corfu Achilleion Palace Excursion Reviews
Since I wasn’t up to two days in a row of wandering about, I booked a tour. We did the Achilleion Place, Perama and Old Town. The whole town was crazy crowded. My daughters loved the palace and while on the tour it was packed, we had time before we had to board the bus to go back through the rooms and gardens and look closer. As we did the island tour, the streets were crowded so the bus lumbered on. We passed Mouse Island but the bus couldn’t or wouldn’t stop for us to take photos. The bus had to stop and wait for a plane to take off (the runways are very close to the road). By the time we got to Corfu Town, we didn’t have much time left to explore so we walked about and in/out of shops. Another family toured the fort that was there (it costs a few euros).
a sure way to avoid difficulties to find the palace and overall crowds.
I had chosen a different shore excursion but my friend wanted this one, the palace was ok. There were so many tours there our tour guide seemed to get flustered with all the people there and I thought she wasn't the best tour guide to be honest. We didn't stop for the photo op of Mouse Island they just slowed down. The dowtown part was nice, we left the tour a little early and did our own shopping then took the shuttle bus back.
