Day 6
After leaving the port of Saranda, we traveled along the Albanian coast until we approached the port of Corfu. The day begins with a visit to the Old Town of Corfu, one of the most attractive ancient helmets of Greece, where you can feel the influence of the great civilizations. Enjoy a guided tour of the center of the Old Town, which includes the largest square of Corfu, Spianada (known as "Liston"), the church of San Espiridon (Spiridon is the patron saint of the island), which houses the relics of San Espiridon, the Royal Palace, which houses the Museum of Asian Art, and the New and Old Fortresses. You will also have time to stroll through the alleys and explore the souvenir shops. The next stop is the picturesque village of Palaiokastritsa. The name means old fortress and refers to the castle that stood on the top of the hill which is now the Monastery of the Virgin Mary. Considered one of the best beaches in Corfu, the beach of Paleokastritsa is undoubtedly the most photographed. With its beautiful harbour and crystal clear waters against a dramatic backdrop of cliffs covered with olive and cypress trees, you will certainly understand why.
