This is an impressive house and gardens, worth the €8 admission. There is a good free audio guide, giving info on lots of points of interest around the site, which you can do in any order and select yourself. Our only criticism was that the background story - who lived here, when and why - is somewhat lost. It really... More

We took the number 10 Blue Bus from San Rocco Square in Corfu town at a cost of 2.30 Euros each to get to this beautiful palace, set high above Corfu town. Its cheap entry at 8 Euros each and this includes the headset guide. (They ask for ID before you obtain these and most people show their passports, but... More

I found this place totally by mistake. I had a free afternoon to spend & jumped on the No.10 blue bus from San Rocco Square (Corfu Town). It's a lovely drive out into the hills and this Palace is at the end of the route. It's 8 euros to get in & you can get an audio-guide inside for no... More

It was the first time I see this Palace. The ticket was 8 Euro and they gave each other a phone that contained a guide about this Palace (without any pay more). It was interesting, i loved the rooms of Sisi's palace, especially the mirrors. Also the garden is so beautifull, with that big palm trees and the statues. I... More

Always worth a visit. They have allowed visitors to go to top of internal stair case now. It's a place steeped in history & audio guides which helps.

One of the only things in Corfu with a higher entrance fee, but definitely a must visit. Very interesting and beautifully decorated. The garden is wonderful too, with a magnificent view. The audio guide made in my opinion the visit even more worth it. The only negative thing I can really say is that when we arrived, a little over... More

It's a great place to visit! You can see how Sissy lived, admire the gardens, the sculptures and painting of Achilleas and enjoy the view from the balcony.
