Fairly pricey to enter and we were a little disappointed as there weren't that many rooms to look at or a great deal in them. There are some fabulous paintings and murals and architecture. It does reside in a lovely area with stunning views from some parts of the garden - in other parts the view was obscured by pine... More

We didn't like it really was way to bussy for use and to expensive. The lady at the ticket sell tried to charge us double. We definitely wouldn't go there again

This was part of a taxi tour we booked, so when we arrived at the site, the tour buses had not arrived yet. A good look at how the rich lived in their summer homes in the 19th century. The house has been used for a number of different types of activities since them and most of the house is... More

The Achilleon Palace is worth a visit although try and time it to avoid the tour buses. You can get there for a tenth of the price on the local bus service from the centre of Corfu Town. It's a fascinating place to while away a few hours.

Achilleion palace is on of the most beautiful places to visit in Corfu. Is the palace of Austria-Hungarian queen Sisi. Achilleion's location provides a panoramic view of Corfu city to the north, and across the whole southern part of the island. If you ever visit Corfu island don't miss to go there. Is worth it 100% of your time. Great... More

We had a great time. Lots to see and the audio guide was really useful. They were selling drinks and ice creams but no food so plan where you are going to eat before you go.

I loved visiting here. It was so interesting & our guide was very knowledgeable. Shame the gardens have been left, they need some work. Apart from that, it is well worth a visit, especially if you like big, beautiful paintings. They are really good here.

I thought it a waste of time and I am sad that we did not get to spend more time in the old town. The bus trip there was through a very unattractive part of the island and the palace itself, although quite something in its day was empty and rundown. The gardens were abandoned and smelled as though there... More
