You begin your Idyllic Italia cruise on the picturesque island of Corfu, popular for its warm beaches, welcoming fishing villages and rich, green vegetation. Corfu's port is a 15-minute drive from the airport, and free transfers are included with Marella Cruises, so you'll soon be on board your ship.
If your flight arrives with time to spare take a walk around Corfu Town, or take a hike up to Paleokastritsa, a peaceful village on the island’s west coast. It's a tranquil area with a slower pace of life, and boasts some stunning views, so you'll definitely want to take your camera.
There are lots of landmarks to explore, including Corfu Town's old quarter, Ayios Spyridon Church, the island's archaeological museum and Achilleion Palace. The Palace is located in the pretty village of Gastouri, with the Corfu coast below it.
