This was a great find. A real stately home in the foothills of Corfu. It had a fabulous history, being a palace, a casino and then a meeting for a European summit. James Bond films were shot there and it was oppulent in the extreme. Plus it was a welcome retreat from the heat of Corfu for a good afternoon.... More

This hotel is a beautiful pearl. Take the excursion and listen to the Sissi's story - it's so exciting.

While you should visit Achilleion Palace if you want your visit to Corfu to have a slight tint of the cultural, you will also find out that there is no actual guide in flesh and blood to accompany you during your visit. Adding up to this, the information cards related to the rooms and items that furnish them are rather... More

The palace in very beautiful and the view from there is breathtaking. The ticket costs 7 euro and it deserves the money you pay

A must see for the Sissie and the Achilles fans. The garden is really great and you must nog forget to see the enormous statue of Achilles, Also great scenic view at sea.

We visited the Achilleon, if was so nice that we stayed several hours. Visiting the Palace and the gardens is on of those things not to miss when going to Corfoe. Sissi wanted a nice place to stay, and that's what it became with marvellous paintings and statues, with gardens surrounding the house, and with a gorgeous view over Corfoe... More

Loads of history - make sure you have a guide for the visit and plenty of time to explore. Don't miss the Distillery opposite where you can try the local Kumquat Spirit.

The gardens are well kept with beautiful views across to Corfu Town, airport and Old Fortress..The palace is stunning although if you don't buy an audio guide there are no posters of explanation of the things you were looking at. Also I was invaded by a man with a camera as soon as I entered the gate then they tried... More

Pretty palace with great statues and gardens. We had a guided tour included with our cruise. Parking looked like an issue.
