The next day took us to the island of Corfu in Greece.
Visit to Achilleion Palace.

Marble and bronze sculptures of Greek and Roman heros under palm trees and it's not hard to realize that we are on the coast of the Mediterranean or the Aegean Seas… :D I always loved the history that embodies these regions because there are so many layers of cultural history.

Your trip photos are very enjoyable, Sury, you are fussing unnecessarily. :)
Thanks for sharing,
