Day 1: Corfu - Paleokastritsa

Ionian Islands in two weeks

On the first day, you’ll have a few important tasks: accept the yacht, settle on board, and check up the equipment. After that, you can enjoy some leisure time and take a walk in Corfu, enjoying its picturesque sights and stopping to try local cuisine.


Warmed by the rays of the Mediterranean sun and the gentle Ionian Sea, this island on Greece’s west coast boasts two names at once – the Greek Kerkyra and the Italian Corfu. The first derives from the mythical Kerkyra, Poseidon’s beloved, and the second from the Byzantine “Corifo”, meaning “city of the mountains.” The entire island is covered in orange gardens, vineyards and olive groves, and its shoreline is dotted with cozy little towns and soft beaches.

Kerkyra,the capital of Corfu, is located in Cape Sideros. The city’s historic center has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to its stunning fusion of architectural styles from Ancient Rome to modern-day Great Britain. The Venetians made the greatest contribution to Kerkyra’s aesthetic, ruling here for more than 400 years. Today, Kerkyra overflows with fabulous landmarks: the forts of Paleo-Frurio and Neo-Frurio, the neoclassical St. George Cathedral, the Palace of St. Michael and St. George, and various museums, galleries, and churches located both in Kerkyra itself, and beyond.


The most picturesque resort on the island of Corfu is located on its northwest coast. It’s the tiny village of Paleokastritsa, surrounded by the azure waters of the Ionian Sea and home to olive groves, golden beaches, and vibrant green hills. On the highest hill stands Theotokos monastery, with its magnificent collection of Byzantine icons and holy relics. The monastery walls give way to a panorama of the entire village, as well as a view of Angelokastro castle in the village of Krini.
