7 Days Itinerary
Discover the majesty and beauty of Greece with this awe-inspiring itinerary. From Corfu to Galaxidi, this is a truly unforgettable trip.
Corfu (Kerkira), is considered to be the most international of the Ionian islands and is a small paradise on earth. From Paleokastritsa to Kanoni, from the Achillion to Pontikonissi and the northern coast, one will find scenic coves, and lush vegetation that stretches down to the deep blue sea. On this cosmopolitan island it is easy to combine relaxation with vibrant night-life.
Paxi. This islands history has been closely related to that of Corfu, as is evident from the Venetian castle built on the isle of St. Nicholas. Nature has proven to be more than generous to this small island. Secluded bays are on the east of the island, while the west is dominated by steep hills covered by olive trees producing one of the finest olive oils available in the world.
Lefkada. A beautiful island with vast green valleys, waterfalls, and endless beaches surrounded by uninhabited islets. Spectacular villas, Byzantine churches and colourful back streets make Lefkada one of the most beautiful islands in the Ionian group.
Ithaki. Unspoilt by tourism, this island is a serene and remote paradise. Ithaki is the homeland of Odysseus, the hero much praised by Homer. The mountainous terrain blends softly into numerous bays while the capital Vathi overlooks the remains of the two fortresses at the entrance to the harbour.
Kefalonia. The largest of the Ionian group. Steep, green cliffs suddenly plunge into deep blue waters. Visit the cave of Melissani, an incredible semi-underground lake of clear turquoise and indigo water. Nearby is the Drogarati cave, a large stalagmite cavern of rare beauty. To the north lies Fiscardo, the most cosmopolitan resort of the island and a favourite meeting point amongst cruise lovers.
Nafpaktos. Two majestic towers welcome the sailor at the entrance to the harbour which is overlooked by a castle and surrounded by numerous bars and cafes.
Galaxidi. A beautiful town surrounded by lovely beaches and taverns. Meander through the streets or simply visit the local Marine museum. The wealth and grandeur of this picturesque port has a long history and tradition of shipbuilding. The Corinth Canal unites the Salonic Bay with the Bay of Corinth, minimising the distance between the islands of the Aegean and the Ionian Sea. Its bridge connects the Peloponnese to Attica and was completed in 1882, after 13 years of construction. The theatre of Epidavros is the most famous and the best preserved of the ancient theatres in Greece. Attending a performance of ancient drama in this theatre is almost a mystical experience, never to be forgotten!
