Visit Achilleion Palace
Achilleion is a palace built in Gastouri on the Island of Corfu by Empress (German: Kaiserin) of Austria, Elisabeth of Bavaria, also known as Sisi, after a suggestion by Austrian Consul Alexander von Warsberg.
Elisabeth was a powerful woman obsessed with beauty, but was deeply saddened by the tragic loss of her only son, Crown Prince Rudolf of Austria during the Mayerling Incident in 1889. A year later in 1890, she had this summer palace built in the region of Gastouri (Γαστούρι), about ten kilometres to the south of the city of Corfu in formerly, the municipality of Achilleio; now part of the Corfu municipality. Achilleion’s location provides a panoramic view of Corfu city to the north, and across the whole southern part of the island.
The architectural style was intended to represent an ancient palace of mythical Phaeacia. The palace was designed with the hero Achilles of Greek mythology as its central theme, and from which the name is derived. Corfu was Elizabeth’s favorite vacation place and she wanted a palace to gratify her admiration for Greece, its language and its culture.
The Easter Experience
In Spianada square and Liston, the local philharmonic orchestras accompany the Epitaph playing funeral marches, the most famous of which is Amleto, and create an atmosphere of devout concentration on Holy Saturday. A few hours later, the joyous news of the resurrection replaces the grievous sounds of the philharmonic orchestras with noise, voices and countless botis (pots) thrown from the balconies.
Don’t forget to keep a piece of a broken botis as a memento and, according to tradition, in order to have good luck for the rest of the year.
A few meters away from Divani Corfu Palace, visit Kanoni area and sit on the narrow path that crosses the sea, across from the famous Pontikonisi, and enjoy a stunning sunset.
Every ten or twenty minutes airplanes will take off right above your head, as the airport is located just some minutes away. This breathtaking picture combined with the sight of the sun slowly diving into the sea is a Corfu highlight.
