Corfu, Greece

Vineyards and olive groves thrive amid rocky mountain terrain on this western Ionian Sea isle. The Old Town of Corfu is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and its winding labyrinth of streets leads to the expansive Esplanade Square, alluring shops and cafes, and three 15th-century forts from the Venetian rule. For a seaside escape, head to the golden sand of Glyfada Beach or to Paleokastritsa, famed for the turquoise waters of its bay. The resort town also has a hilltop Byzantine monastery dating to the 13th century. Mountainous Lakones boasts panoramic views of Paleokastritsa and the sea while the crowning glory of Gastouri is Achilleion Palace and its gardens. Completed in 1891, the palace once served as a getaway for Empress Elisabeth of Austria and later Germany’s Kaiser Wilhelm II before the start of World War I.
