The Private Accessible 5 hour Corfu Shore Excursion will allow you to experience all the beauty and wonder contained within the Island of Corfu. Ancient mythology and natural beauty are abundant throughout the small villages that you will visit and will give you a taste of Greek life on the second largest of the Greek Islands.
This accessible shore excursion of Corfu will begin with a wheelchair accessible van meeting you at the Corfu cruise dock or accessible hotel. Your driver and guide will then escort you to the village of Gastouri, home of the Achilleion Palace. A beautiful and mysterious palace surrounded by cypress trees and built in the late 19th century, it has been restored to its original splendor after two World Wars and financial difficulties took their toll. Time permitting, this Palace is completely accessible and can be visited from the inside.
Stops along the way will include Lakones Village, where you will be able to sample some local wine and sweets with offerings of some of the best local specialties on the island. As you continue your travels on this Corfu accessible shore excursion, you will make a short stop at Kanoni, and enjoy a beautiful view of the city and Mouse Island (not accessible to visit). Your professional tour guide will give you the history behind some of the island’s greatest myths, such as the legend of Mouse Island and how it relates to the Greek god of the sea, Poseidon.
Finish your day off on this accessible shore excursion of Corfu by visiting the Old Town. Here you can see the Old Fortress, take in the breathtaking French-style architecture, stroll down the ancient streets and visit numerous cafes and restaurants offering authentic Greek Cuisine. You will also visit the main church of Corfu, the Saint Spryridon Church (exterior only, inside is not accessible), which serves as a local monument for the people of the island. Your wheelchair accessible van will then return you to the Corfu cruise dock or hotel where your next adventure awaits!
