Greek Odyssey Tour

Paleokastritsa Bay
Corfu is an island on Greece's northwest coast, in the Ionian Sea. Also, according to Homer's masterwork, The Odyssey, it was the island of the Phaeacians, where Odysseus was shipwrecked during a storm while trying to escape from the nymph Calypso. This guided tour follows the plot points of that epic poem over the course of six fascinating hours.

Some highlights include stops at the blue-green waters of Paleokastritsa Bay, one possible location where, in the tale, Odysseus washed up on the shore and was discovered by Princess Nausicaa. Another possible site of this first meeting is the long, crescent-shaped Ermones Beach, perfect for sunbathing. The tour also includes a visit to the Kanoni peninsula area of the main town, which features views of the islet of Pontikonisi and is also heavy on Greek mythology.
