AchilleionKanoniLazaris Distillery and Artisan Sweets

The famous Achilleion Palace, named after Achilles, was built for Elizabeth, also known as Sissi, the Empress of Austria. Perched on the crest of the mountain it has some of the most scenic views of the island. It is adorned with a fresco and numerous paintings and also has a bronze statue of the ‘dying Achilles’ as a focal point in the lush gardens. Both the Palace and the abundant grounds have a copious amount of sculptures.

The palace was Elizabeth’s summer refuge until 1896. It was sold in 1907 to Keiser Wilhelm II who utilized it as a summer residence until the outbreak of World War 1 in 1914. It functioned as a military hospital during the war years and then as an orphanage from 1921 to 1924. In 1962 it became a casino and the scenes in the 007 movie “For Your Eyes Only” with Roger Moore were shot in the casino and on the palace balcony. Step back in time with a tour of this magnificent architectural and historical masterpiece!

Just two kilometres from the current centre of Old Corfu Town is the historic Kanoni area, which in the past was part of the city of Paleopolis, the ancient centre of Corfu. The area of ​​Kanoni contains a very important and much photographed and recognized, iconic tourist attraction; Vlacherna monastery. Adjacent to it is the picturesque, diminutive island of Pontikonisi. Continuing up the verdant hill on which Kanoni is built one will be suitably impressed by the view.  This is a great place for taking impressive photos and videos as the planes approaching the runway come in very low preparing for landing.

A visit to the Lazaris Distillery and Artisan Sweets, at their factory showroom, reveals the most beautiful traditional products of Corfu. Alcoholic beverages include the Corfiot kumquat and limoncello liqueurs, ouzo, tsipouro and vodka. Other products available are jams, marmalades and preserves. Artisan sweets like fig pie, spoon sweets, Greek delight, caramelized almonds and nougat are beautifully packaged and sold for visitors to take home as gifts or as a memento of their visit.
