This was a wonderful visit. There were no lines to get in. It is handicap friendly as it has an elevator if you need it. The inside offers a lot of history and the outside gardens are beautiful.

DONT! go there at busy times. During the day several coach loads of coaches arrive and swamp the Palace. If you choose to go during these times it will not be a pleasant experience. Also - the coaches block the road and you will get...More

Visited this place as part of a island trip, externally the palace is beautiful but internally it is in need of some restoration, but overall very interesting learning about elisabeth of austria

As other reviews also indicate, it was overwhelmingly busy with (mostly German) tour parties when we were there late morning - so I suspect a good tactic is to go very early or very late. There is an audio guide with info on many of...More

Unfortunately only had one hour during a tour of the island to visit here. A beautiful building containing many artifacts. beautiful gardens and views over Corfu. Would return again for a longer visit

The gardens were very good but the inside was very busy and a bit disappointing. There was a few rooms open but quite bare and not a lot too see. Stunning location and room to wander.

There are relatively few places for parking. People park their car along the road for a maximum 5 min walk! No fear of being fined! Is better with the bus which is very convenient!

Usually not, because most tourists go with tour guides who plan the tickets in advance. Hopefully a more recent visitor can inform you even better :-) When are you planning to go?
