Achilleion - Review
Built in the 19th century by the Empress of Austria (lovingly known as Sissy), the Palace was the result of the Empress’s love of Greek Mythology and hence the palace followed the theme of Achilles.
Following the death of her only Son, the Empress put her mind and soul into getting the palace built. After her death the palace was abandoned during the World Wars and after extensive repairs, today the place is a museum open for the Public.
- Detailed paintings form the 19th century
- Embellished paintings on the ceiling
- Majestic central staircase
- Beautiful painting of the Empress when she was 21
- The adjoining garden
Anyone who visits the place is sure to think they have stepped into Greek Mythology. The museum is perfect if you truly love art and history, merged seamlessly!

Achilleion, Corfu Reviews
What a fascinating place to visit, full of history, architecture, beautiful gardens and stunning views of the island - I can see why the Empress loved it! Might be a challenge for those with limited mobility, and probably not great with under-12s (no special "kids" version of the tour that I could see). Cafes and toilets on site. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.
Worth going there. However, don't expect to much. I just had the feeling that it needs a bit of touching up. The staff needs some friendliness training. But enjoy your visit.
Beautiful place in stunning location. The James bond film for your eyes only was made here. Only €8 to enter however was quite disappointed once inside as most rooms are out of bounds and there isn't much in the way of contents. You do get a free audio guide which explains the history and is her good.
Beautiful building with spectacular views. Remember to take a passport or driver's licence or you won't be able to get an audio guide, which is a must. The rooftop gardens are stunning.
A great place with historic scent, beautiful gardens. Audio guides all around the place explaining and telling stories. Well worth visiting.
