About Achilleion, Corfu
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
A must see! A peek into the past, not only of a Bavarian princess, but of Homer's Iliad! The blue room with the white angels a favorite, and the spectacular garden!
Another important objective to visit in Corfu Island. It is very interesting and can take you to the ancient times when you'll see the big statue in the garden of the Sissi's Palace.
Beautiful building with great views and good history. Gardens are very pretty and the views are excellent. Quite busy when we arrived but it was a grey day so the beaches had probably emptied. Only detraction was the you needed your ID card or passport to get an audio guide and we did not have them with us.
Such an amazing place where it’s easy to get lost...the gardens are impressive with a great views. The audioguide is highly recommended.
One of my favourite places In Corfu. If you visit Corfu find some time and send half of your Day there. Located on the southern Corfu but with some very important monuments. Dont forget to use you audiophone In more than 5 languages. You will be able to Learn about the secret life of Princess Sissy. The statue of Achilles is impressive whereas the palace is a Diamond of a previous age.. Totally recomended..
