This museum beautifully showcases Corfu’s renowned traditions and the local civilization that has developed over the centuries.
From Acharavi, we’ll venture to the picturesque village of Old Perithia, nestled amidst the lush slopes of Pantokrator, Corfu’s tallest mountain. This abandoned village, known for its numerous Venetian-style buildings and churches, offers a captivating glimpse into the island’s architectural heritage. Indulge in a delectable meal at one of the charming taverns, located within the village’s historic buildings. Old Perithia is not only renowned for its historical significance but also for its exceptional culinary offerings.
Capture the beauty of the coastline as we drive you back to your cruise ship. Along the northeast coast of Corfu, you’ll pass through the scenic village of Kassiopi and Kouloura, providing excellent opportunities for stunning photographs of the neighboring country of Albania and the mainland of Greece, Ipeiros. Finally, we’ll arrive at Kalami, a breathtaking horseshoe-shaped bay known for its natural beauty.

If time allows, indulge in the crystal-clear waters of Kalami Beach. Otherwise, relax in the comfort of our mini-bus and soak in the scenic views until we return to your starting point, be it the port or any other designated location.
