Visited it in June 2015. Adult ticket is EUR 8.00. You are provided with a walkie-talkie, which helps a lot if not with a group. Mostly impressed by the garden, and the sculptures there. The statues of Achilles are absolutely impressive. The view form the garden is also very beautiful - overlooking the sea, and the town of Corfu in... More

One the most atractive sites in Corfu island. It is a beatiful palace with beatiful surroundings. Amazing outlooks to Corfu's coastline. Lovely gardens and sculptures. The inner part of the palace is also very impressive. I was attracted specialy by the astonishing wall picture of Achilles surrounding Troya with Hector's body.

Although called a palace, it is not very big, more the size of a Manor House. We paid €6 each as seniors, normal adult price is €8. Unfortunately we were not told about the audio's we could have had, which would have been very helpful, as a previous reviewer has said there is not much information around the place. Perhaps...

Sorry! Don't like to write like this specially about palces... But this one is both over priced and has nothing special! Maybe the statues outside the top floor terrace... Maybe the statue of Achilleon... But that's it!!!!! The palace itself is small and .... Well, I would try to go other places in Corfu... Go to the beach!!

8 euro for a completely empty, badly manteined palace were you can see on TV (they actually have a TV) the movies that were filmed there. The best thing are the stairs, the rest, I could have continued living without ever seeing it. Wouldnt go back ever!

It is certainly worth a visit, excellent paintings and furnishings, not quite what I would call a palace more a mansion. Lovely gardens and nice views. Gets very crowded at times with tour parties

The views are great from the garden and certainly the statue half Achilles is original . The house is modest as Imperial holiday homes go. It's really a villa and certainly not a palace. The furnishings are more like stage props and don't sit well. When Sissi died the place was abandoned until Kaiser Willhelm of Germany rented it for... More

Was included in part of a Thomsons tour. Was impressive with beautiful paintings and Icons. Was too crowded to see the majority of the exhibits. The roof terrace gave access to the gardens and amazing views. Really appreciated the small taverna across from the Palace. The burgers and frappe were just what we needed after our early start and were... More

We were a couple, charged 8Euro each for entry. Families get in for 15Euro in total. What sort of pricing policy is that. Entry adverised to include free audio guide, which you have to ask for - but only one was provided between us despite pointing out that we had paid two entry fees. On the one hand the audio... More
