Sisi’s white marble palace, “Achilleion,” is located approximately seven kilometers from the city of Corfu on a hilltop in the village of Gastouri. From here, one has an extraordinary view of the landscape and sea. In the palace and in the surrounding flourishing gardens the feeling of peace for which Sisi always longed is tangible. Here she takes long walks and travels on the sea. The heroic tales of Homer, the Iliad and the Odyssey, which were so meaningful to Sisi, are implemented in various forms throughout the palace and botanical gardens.
