The Mon Repose Palace & UNESCO Awarded Old Town

The Mon Repose Palace & UNESCO Awarded Old Town

This Yachting Land Adventure is an opportunity to experience Corfu’s iconic Mon Repos Palace and includes a stop in Old Corfu Town with some free time.

Board your coach from the pier and set off to the Mon Repos Palace. Built in 1828 by Sir Adam Maitland, a British Commissioner, this elegant palace was a gift to his Corfiot wife. Originally serving as the Summer Residence of the High Commissioners, Mon Repos now belongs to the Ministry of Culture and the Municipality of Corfu. Explore the palace, which houses a museum featuring a collection of local ancient Corfu artifacts. Discover the rich history of this remarkable place as you admire the fascinating exhibits. Mon Repos Palace is a testament to the beauty and cultural heritage of Corfu, offering a glimpse into its illustrious past.

Returning to Corfu Town, leave the coach in the main Esplanade square for a beautiful walk through the cobbled-stoned streets of the Old Town. Pass by historical sites such as the Residence of the British High Commissioner, the Venetian quarters of Cambiello and Corfu´s Historical Center, the Town Hall. Visit the Church of St. Spyridon, Patron Saint of Corfu. After the visit, either board the coach to return to your SeaDream yacht or remain in the town to further explore independently and return on your own.

Notes: The Achilleion Palace is closed for renovations, instead you will enjoy the Mon Repos Palace as a fantastic alternative.
