Corfu: Kerkyra

After leaving Kavos behind, we went back to Kerkyra, aka Corfu-city, the capital of Corfu. Kerkyra was wonderful with its promenade, small alleys and countless charming restaurants however the most striking monument was definitely the Achilleion.

The Archileon was empress Sissi’s home away from home fa, ascinating villa built in Greek style meant as an homage to the Greek hero Achilleion. Notorious for being depressed, I can totally get why empress Sissi chose this place to live, the view from the place is absolutely spectacular.
