We are in a villa that virtually backs on to the Palace so had to go (walked up!). €8 per adult, stayed around 90 minutes. There is an audio guide which we didn't do (take ages) but was in the admission fee. Very crowded and not much inside really, you get the feeling it has been stripped down over the... More

Food though palace if you've never seen a late 19 century palace before. Great house if you happened to live in it. Overrated as a touristic attraction.

We had a lovely day which was topped off by a visit to the palace and gardens. The architecture is beautiful and the story of the palace really interesting. The grounds and views were breathtaking. The entrance fee was €5 which I thought was very reasonable and there were a few cafes dotted around for refreshments which were also excellent.... More

It is beautiful historical place, probably a must-go in Corfu. Bus connection straight from Corfu town.

This place can become seriously overrun with tourists in summer. The parking area is not designed to accomodate all the cars and tour buses trying to pass eachother. The palace itself is somewhat disappointing because there is so little furniture. The beautiful gardens and the view of the sea make up a lot, however. There is also a nice little... More

We visited the summer palace during a sunny day. The scenery is just amazing, the palace is so cute....Sissi was right to select this location for her summer holidays!

The tickets cost 8 euro per person. Quite pricy for such a place... After you enter the place you have to wait in a line to get a small machine that works like a automatic tourist guide. We waited for a half hour and after that they told us that they don't have any machines and that we have to... More

Well worth a visit, winding roads lead up to it which can be tight! 15 euros for a family ticket and quite good value, we didn't go for the electronic guides but wish we had as there's not much information displayed around the place. The queue was too long to get them and you do need a passport or photo... More
