A Great Day in Corfu

Saturday, Sept. 24th – We arrived in Corfu, Greece and caught a taxi with a great tour guide named Cristos, who took us to visit Achillion Palace and Garden a neo-classical palace over 100 years old designed and built for Empress Elisabeth of Austria. He then drove us to the Monastery of the Virgin Mary with gleaming whitewashed walls and a chapel that was built in 1685 and it was a women’s monastery. Liz, Susan and I had a great lunch and wine at a restaurant named Bellisimo. Then we tried to find the Synagogue but gave up after about 45 minutes of searching. We window shopped most of the day but did manage to see a few churches.
