Christmas Cruise - Corfou

The second day in Greece was spent in Corfou. For this tour we went to Achilleion which was:

a palace built in Corfu by the Empress of Austria Elisabeth of Bavaria, also known as Sissi, after a suggestion by Austrian Consul Alexander von Watzberg...designed with the mythical hero Achilles as its central theme.

After spending a couple of hours there we then went to downtown Corfou to look at a church and do some shopping. The downtown was not all that impressive and was quite dirty. Plus the weather was not the best. Nevertheless we had a great excursion number three with our new friends.
