Visit the most alluring attractions in and around Corfu by hopping on and off double-decker buses as they make continuous loops around the city.
After departing from the pier on a bus, you will head to Corfu's top attractions, the exact ones depending on which bus line you take. You also have the option of remaining on board and sightseeing, as the bus will return to the cruise terminal area in about an hour.
During that time, the bus will make stops at the top destinations around town. You can hop off when it reaches an attraction of interest and stay as long as you like. When you are ready to see another attraction, simply hop on another bus and it will take you there.
One bus line concentrates on the Kanoni Peninsula, an area with excellent shopping and dining. It also stops at the Mon Repos Palace, a 19th-century private home that later became the summer residence for the British governors of Corfu. You can also get off at Spilia Square and see the New Fortress.
If you opt to take the other bus line, you might hop off at Achilleion, a 19th-century palace built as the summer retreat for the former empress of Austria. The palace is dedicated to Achilles, whom she greatly admired. This line also stops in the Old Town of Corfu, which UNESCO named a World Heritage site for its preserved fortifications and Venetian architecture. One of its highlights is the 15th-century Old Fortress.
