Achilleion Palace Tours

star-4.5
2 Reviews
Achilleion Palace
Located in the village of Gastouri on the island of Corfu, Achilleion Palace was built by Empress Elisabeth of Austria in 1890. Designed by Italian architect Raffaello Caritto, the palace was built in a Pompeian architectural style and features paintings and sculptures of Achilles throughout. Among the sculptures is the famous Dying Achilles in the center of the palace gardens, sculpted by the Greek Ernst Herter.

After Empress Elisabeth was killed, the German Kaiser Wilhelm II bought the palace and used it as a summer residence. During World War I, it was used as a military hospital and during World War II, it was used by the axis powers as a military headquarters. Eventually, it was turned over to the control of the Hellenic Tourist Organization and today it is a museum with certain rooms and the gardens open to the public. Without a doubt, it is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Corfu and provides excellent views of Corfu city to the north and of the rest of the island to the south.

Practical Info

The village of Gastouri is located about 10 kilometers south of Corfu city and numerous taxis, tours and buses run between the village and the city throughout the day. The palace is generally open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.
