Above & Beyond Palaiokastritsa

Life is a beautiful journey, enjoy the ride...!

Ride around the island and discover the best sights from incredible points of view. Join a small group tour with a friendly tour escort for a fun and relaxed journey around Corfu island. 

 

Description: 

Driving along scenic country roads and through traditional villages, this tour includes a visit to Palaiokastritsa, one of the most famous locations on the island. Surrounded by olive groves and cypress trees, it is set around three bays. According to legend, Paleokastritsa is where Odysseus was shipwrecked and met Nausica. On the northern end of Paleokastritsa is the 12th-century Byzantine monastery of Theotokos. The monastery is notable for its ceiling carving of the Tree of Life. Riding through the traditional villages of Lakones and Krini we will visit Angelokastro, a Byzantine castle set on a steep hill with great views of the whole island. Several stops for photo opportunities will be made along the way. This tour includes a hearty Corfiot cuisine lunch with a fine selection of original local dishes.

For travelers that wish to participate in our “Above & Beyond Palaiokastritsa” Vespa scooter tour but they do not have a scooter or motorcycle driving license, since March 2019 we have available the Mp3- trikes option. The Piaggio MP3 is a tilting three-wheeled scooter noted for its combination of two front wheels and a single rear wheel.
