Corfu- Mon Repos Palace - Kanoni & Corfu Town
We depart from Corfu’s Port and we drive to Kanoni, a beauty spot situated 4 kilometers south from Corfu 
Town center. 
 
Here participants will stop to admire the lovely views and take pictures of the famous “Mouse Island” one of the legendary petrified Ulysses’ boats and the little chapel of the Holly Virgin of Vlacherna nearby. Later we drive northbound and after a while we stop in front of the main gate of “Mon Repos” Palace. An approx. 7 minutes walk through the gardens will lead participants to the Palace. 

The Palace was built by the second British Lord High Commissioner of the Ionian Islands, Sir Frederic Adam, in 1828 when he got married to a Corfu lady Mrs. Palatianou. 
 
It was used as the Summer Residence of the High Commissioners, while their official residence was the 
Palace of St. Michael and St. George in Corfu town itself.It was designed by an English engineer named 
Harper who was at the time employed by the Corfu technical department. It is a circular building of the 
English style with a large basement and one floor with wide verandas reached by a wooden staircase. On 
this first floor were the sleeping quarters and the reception halls.Of course the main beauty of the villa is its setting.It has a garden with numerous types of trees and other exotic plants brought by Lord Adam from England and the Commonwealth.The Empress Elizabeth of Austria accepted here the hospitality of the last High Commissioner, Storks , in 1861.Many other important personalities stayed in the villa after the Ionian Islands were ceded to Greece in 1864 whereupon it was donated to the Greek Royal family.In fact, the second son of King George I, George, was born here in 1869.In 1900, the wedding of Princess Maria, daughter of King George I and Olga took place here when she married the Archduke Georgio Mihailovic of Russia. The Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip , the British Queen’s husband , was born (1921) and baptized here. 
 
The Greek Royal family spent their summer holidays at Mon Repos, hosting their guests (Tito of Jugoslavia, Haile Selasie of Ethiopia, Nasser of Egypt etc.), until the last King Constantine, after a referendum in 1974, went into exile in England.

Katakolan - Olympia Tour, site of the Olympic Idea - 4 hours
Guests will be met by our English speaking guide to commence the tour. Upon completion of the tour, transfer to the ship.

Olympia is situated in the quiet beautiful valley of the Alfios, in the territory of Pisatis. The setting, in great contrast with most Greek sites, is pastoral, green and lush. The ruins are shaded by evergreen oaks, Aleppo pines, poplars, and olive-trees. En route to Olympia, pass Pyrgos, the modern capital city of the province. Olympia was not a city, but a sacred precinct occupied exclusively by temples, dwellings for priests and officials, and public buildings in connection with the Pan-Hellenic games that were hosted there for more than a millennium. In 393 AD, the Christian Emperor Theodosius, in his crackdown of pagan festivals, closed the games and his successor had the temples destroyed. Later, the River Alfios changed its course to flow directly over the sanctuary where it remained buried under seven meters of sand and silt until the 1870s. A striking feature of the festival was the proclamation of the Ekecheiria, or Olympic Truce. Still more surprising was its almost universal observance, witness to the high prestige of the Olympic festival. Explore the archaeological site including the Stadium, the Temples of Zeus & Hera, the Ancient Wrestling House, the Altar (where the Olympic Flame of the modern times is lit), the Roman Aqueduct, the guesthouse and the workshop of the Athenian sculptor, Pheidias.

Next, visit the museum and admire the sculptures from the Temple of Zeus, the statue of Nike Peonios, and the statue of Hermes of Praxiteles. The museum also includes a rich collection of statues of the Roman emperors and objects used or dedicated by the ancient competitors.

Duration: 4 hours approx.

Enjoy a scenic drive to Delphi via the National Highway passing through the spectacular sites of Boetia, Thebes and Levadia.

Delphi is by common consent the most spectacularly beautiful ancient site in Greece and the one, which, even to the uninitiated, most vividly evokes the Classical Past.  In antiquity Delphi was regarded as the centre of the world (omphalos of the earth) and to this, and its oracle, the place owed its prestige, which extended far beyond the Greek world.  

Our visit to Delphi is divided into three parts: the Sanctuary of Apollo with the Stadion; the Castalian spring and the Sanctuary of Athena at Marmaria (from above as it is a steep ragged climb to access it); and the Museum.

Enjoy lunch at a traditional local restaurant.  En route to Athens, there will be a short stop at the picturesque mountain village of Arachova. The village is famous for its attractive hand-woven carpets and rugs as well as for its wine and cheese.

In the early evening return to Athens.

All fares and offers are for new bookings only, as of May 1, 2014, are subject to availability, may not be combinable with other offers except Viking Explorer Society Travel Credit and Referral Rewards Credit, are capacity-controlled and may be withdrawn at any time without prior notice.

Cruise fares listed are cruise only in U.S. dollars, per person, based on double occupancy. Cruise fares listed are valid for U.S. and Canadian residents only. Cruise ship fuel surcharge may apply. 2-for-1 fares are based upon published full brochure fares; cruise fares do not include pre-paid charges, optional facilities and service fees, and personal charges, as defined in the terms and conditions of the Passenger Ticket Contract. Full brochure fares may not have resulted in actual sales in all stateroom categories and may not have been in effect during the last 90 days. Promotional fares may remain in effect after the expiration date. Viking reserves the right to correct errors or omissions and to change any and all fares, fees and surcharges at any time. Please call for the most up-to-date prices, as pricing and availability may change at any time. The cruise ship fuel surcharge is additional revenue to Viking River Cruises, as are any additional charges relating to currency fluctuation other than for fully paid cruise fares and full fares, which fluctuations are beyond our control. Additional terms and conditions may apply. Complete terms and conditions may be found in the Passenger Ticket Contract.

All fares are quoted in US Dollars.
