This Corfu shore trip focuses on beautiful views from several vantage points, allowing you to see the natural beauty of the most lush of the Greek islands. A refreshment stop is included to sample the local liqueur.
After meeting your private licensed guide will start your panoramic journey of Corfu, which is different than most Greek islands because it is very lush and richly endowed by nature. Over the centuries it has acquired refinement and sophistication which are the result of the union of great civilizations and natural beauty.
First you travel along the scenic West Coast to the hill top village of Lakones or Bella Vista as it is known. This impressive location offers the most spectacular views over the famous Bay of Paleokastritsa, its emerald seas and unusual rock formations. In the distance the old Monastery founded in 1225 sits serenely over this popular bay resort.
Next you drive to inland to the inspiring scenic village of Makrades, the Troumbetta Pass and the village of Scripero leading through the fertile area known as the Ropa Valley.
Your next stop is at a distillery which produces an island favorite, Koum Kouat Liqueur. There will be time for tasting this specialty along with fruit glace.
After enjoying this refreshing stop you start the trip back to Corfu town. Along the way a short stop is made at the area known as Kanoni, so called due the old Canons, still in place, which used to protect the entrance to the harbor . This vantage point offers wonderful views of the bay with Mouse Island and the little chapel clearly visible. Once in the town of Corfu you can decide if you want to stay and explore the Esplanade on your own or return to the pier or your hotel.
