Wonderful gardens and archaeological sites, interesting building housing a fascinating Museum. Corfu has such a long history going back 3,000 years.
This building isn't as attractive as the Achilleion Palace but that means that there aren't nearly as many people. It's pleasant to wander through the palace but then go on a walk through the gardens and see if you can find Diana's Roman Temple.
A museum within the old Palace, birthplace of Prince Philip, gives an excellent history of the local area. The grounds are extensive and a secluded green oasis n Kanoni, just outside Corfu Town. Well worth a visit. As others have commented it's not the best maintained building or grounds but none of that detracts from it being interesting, tranquil and... 更多
Walking distance from the Esplanade (but a bit of a climb) the house commands some nice views in a large park. Some information on the house as a residence for the Greek Royal Family but nowadays the museum is more dedicated to the local history of town and island. Very little furniture and limited info on the history of the... 更多
Reached by a long walk through now unkempt gardens the building exterior is showing all the signs of on going neglect. The inside is a little better and some of the exhibits especially the photos are interesting. The staff however seem disinterested. Is it worth the cost of reaching the place (bus, taxi, petit train) and the entrance fee. No... 更多
If you are headed to Kanoni, stop to check this beautiful palace and the park that surround it (bus no2 stops just in front of the gate).you can stroll around park and discover remains of the ancient town of Corfu or visit museum. Perfect getaway from summer heat.
Had been trying to find Mon Repos for several years, and managed it this year, We were able to park closeby. It is quite a walk to the house through the gardens which didn't look too well cared for. The house outside looked a bit run down, but there was only a nominal sum to enter. I expected the rooms... 更多
We visited this large house as part of a ship's excursion. I think this attraction would be hard for individual visitors to find as the signage was obscure. There was just a small oval blue and red sign over a gate with these words printed on it, "Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh was born here. Then, when we entered the... 更多
Just a 10 min walk from our hotel, a lovely house, now a museum , and large gardens. Birthplace of Duke of Edinburgh. Beautiful peaceful walk with a great variety of trees and plants, and some interesting ruins.
Put on some decent shoes and swimwear and head up the road behind Gamitso Bay and Nautilus. It's a 15 minute walk to the gate and a good hour round the woodland. On the way round you can pay to see inside the house where Prince Phillip was born - it's worth a look - but keep walking to the... 更多
