“In 1876, Elizabeth travelled on her own to Athens and Corfu and threw herself into a study of ancient Greek literature especially of Homer. She also took a keen interest in the excavations being carried out at the time by Heinrich Schliemann in Troy, Mycenae and Tiryns. After a long trip to Troy and many other parts of the ancient Greek world, she returned to Corfu in 1888 and stayed as a guest in the Vrailas villa. A year later, Elizabeth bought the estate and began work on the construction of the palace - in an atmosphere of profound mourning, because in the meantime her son Rudolf and his lover had been found dead. During her time at the Achilleio, Elizabeth learned the Greek language and much about the ancient literature from eminent teachers, notable among whom was the scholar and writer Constantinos Christomanos, who was officially employed for this purpose by the Imperial court. In 1898, the 'melancholy queen', as Elizabeth had come to be called, was assassinated in a hotel in Geneva by an Italian anarchist Elizabeth called her palace at Gastouri the Achilleio, dedicating it to her favourite hero, Achilles; as she herself wrote, "here presents the Greek spirit, the beauty of the land", and is "as strong, as proud and as obstinate as a Greek mountain". The Achilleio was constructed in 1889-1891, by the Italian architects Rafael Corito and Antonio Lanti, under the personal supervision of the Empress, who also took charge of the ornamentation of the palace with paintings and sculptures, most of which were purchased from the Borghese family. It is a luxurious three storey building in the 'Pompeian order', with neo-Classical elements, and it is surrounded by densely-vegetated gardens adorned with important works of art. In 1908, after the death of Elizabeth, the Achilleio was bought by Wilhelm II, the German Kaiser, and in 1914 - on the outbreak of the First World War ­ it was abandoned. In 1915, it was used as the headquarters of the Serbian Army and as a hospital, coming into the hands of the Greek state in 1919. During the Second World War it served as a hospital again - and as the headquarters of the German and Italian occupying forces - and after liberation it houses a variety of schools and institutions. Today, it belongs to the National Tourist Organisation and from 1962 to 1992 Corfu casino operated there. The ground floor of the building functions as a museum. ”

“The climb up 900 plus steps to the top of this historic fortress is worth it if you love stunning views. The Venetians built it in 1686. What’s fascinating is it was so well designed all attempts to conquer it were unsuccessful. Until the Greeks came and managed to take it over in 1822 during the Greek Revolution, surprising the world at the time. Independence was won against the Ottoman Empire. Greece was a new free state. Nafplio was named capital.”

“Myrtos beach is about 30 mins drive south of Fiskardo. It is one of the most photographed beaches in the world and featured in the “sea mine” scene in Captain Corelli’s Mandolin. In high season there are sun beds to rent and also a beach bar. The beach is surrounded by spectacular white cliffs and can become a heat trap so take plenty of water and listen to advice from the lifeguards regarding the swimming conditions as the sea floor drops off sharply close to the shoreline and can result in strong rip tides.”

“Mycenae had been inhabited since 2,500. But the brightest era of their history and prosperity coincides with the Late Bronze Age from 1600 to 1110 BC. about. This period corresponds to the most visible findings to date. According to mythology, the founder of Mycenae was Perseus. Pausanias mentions that Perseus named the new city Mycenae either because of the fall of his sword or because a source of abundant water was discovered there, the Persian source, under the root of a "fungus", that is, a mushroom. According to legend, according to the portal odysseus.culture.gr of the Ministry of Culture and Sports, the descendants of Perseus reigned in Mycenae for three generations, with Eurystheus last, who was killed without leaving offspring and thus the inhabitants of Mycenae. their king Atreas, son of Pelops and father of Agamemnon and Menelaus. The reconstruction of the palaces, visible today, began around 1350 BC. Then began the fortification of the acropolis. Later, during the Hellenistic period, the Argites repaired the prehistoric walls and the archaic temple and built a small theater over the road to the vaulted tomb of Klytimnestra. In the following centuries the town remained almost abandoned and was already ruined when Pausanias visited it in the 2nd century. A.D. The Cyclopean walls of the Mycenaean Acropolis, however, remained visible over the centuries and were the attraction of many travelers who did not hesitate to plunder the area during the 18th and 19th centuries. In 1837, after the liberation of Greece, the Mycenaeans came under the auspices of the Athens Archaeological Society, which still conducts research in the area. In 1941 its representative, K. Pittakis, cleared the Leo's Gate, and in 1876, Henry Schliemann, after small trial cuts in 1874, began his grand excavation, which revealed five graves, under the supervision of P. Stamatakis. who continued work between 1876 and 1877, revealing the sixth tomb. The work of Schleiman and Christos Chountas was continued by A. Wace, director of the British School of Archeology, who from 1919 to 1955 systematized the data until then, enriched the research, findings and knowledge of the site and of his cultural idiom. In the following years, investigations continued.”

“It is one of the most hidden places and maybe for this reason more beautiful and wild of the entire island. To get there you have to pass through the mountains village of Agios Leon and from there following the signs, driving down a recently asphalted road running down to the sea and ending in a small square where you can park. From there getting down a few steps carved in the rock, you reach a real fiord stupefying the visitor for the clearness and colours of the waters. It is easy to imagine that in this place there are no many tourist facilities, only recently two terraces with loungers and umbrellas have been created but are not always enough for the request. For those who really care about caves it is worth visiting the first one just getting down the steps; once there and in the water you understand that the cave is to continue … but only for those who love extreme sports. We suggest to everybody and especially those who have their own boat, to visit Porto Roxa that is only 3 km from Porto Limnionas. It is another small bay with a slipway to put boats in the water in an exceedingly beautiful part of coast.”
