This is a fascinating place to visit for those who love to step back into that magical era of Europe's "Ancien Re'gime". The story of the palace is very much bound up with Greek and modern European history. From personal loss, nobility and the appreciation of the arts to political assassination by the then active radical anarchist movement, the place... More

A very lovely palace with magnificent gardens surrounding it. There a many statues in the garden & you can take really lovely photos. We visited the palace when we went to Corfu town as it quite near. There is a free parking infront of it.

This is a lovely piece of architecture and history: each exhibit carries an intricate story about empress Sisi's life.

Not really large but very beautiful palace and garden with plenty of statues. Free parking in front of the palace. Breathtaking view on the sea.

Beautiful palace with amazing views from the gardens. It seems to need more care and restoration (the pictures on the displays/descriptions look significantly cleaner/better than the actual statues and structures). The gardens were the highlight of the visit for us. It's kind of hard to get there without a car. Tip on getting there: it's up a STEEP hill. Bus... More

A place with great history, architecture and natural beauty. In the ticket (about 10euro) a detailed guide is included so you can have key info about everything you see at the palace.

Unbelievable nice place to visit. The building and the garden look really nice and you can get understanding how the royals used to live. Staircases inside are full on magnificent paintings.

The palace itself has nothing special, it is even quite boring, but the terrace and the garden are lovely and provide a breathtaking view over Corfu.
