Categories: Specialty Museums, Museums
Commissioned by Austrian Empress Elisabeth of Bavaria as a summer holiday home, Sissi's Palace (Achilleon) was also home to Kaiser Wilhelm II. After her son died, Elisabeth decided to design a palace in Corfu, a favorite holiday destination. In 1890, the palace was built with a focus on the mythical hero, Achilles. Enter through the manicured gardens, which are dotted with statues representing Zeus and Hera. Inside the palace, you're greeted by a portrait of the tormented empress. You can explore her room, which is filled with its original artwork. The kaiser, who bought the home after the empress’s death, is represented in a room featuring his personal items, including his portrait and other paintings.
