Easter on Corfu has of course a special character of its own. The east orthodox tradition has been infused with venetian elements to create a unique mix of customs that will amaze you.

  • The “Mastela” at PiniaThe Resurrection Mass takes place at the upper square with the presence of the bishop, the many philharmonic orchestras and the faithful people of Corfu. After the Resurrection, under the continuous barrage of fireworks, the bands march across the town playing festive tunes and entertaining the people who celebrate till the morning.
  • Breaking the “Botides”On Holy Saturday, upon the First Resurrection at 11:00am, the people of Corfu throw huge clay jugs full of water – the “botides” – from their heavily decorated balconies, around Liston Square. The roots of the custom are lost back to Venetian times. The practice symbolises the removal of bad luck from people’s houses in an effort to break an evil spell.

Itinerary

Day 1Holy Thursday

Motor yacht Karina begins the private cruise to majestic Corfu from Parga at 10:00am. Our first stop will be Syvota where you can stroll around the traditional and picturesque alleys. Then we continue our cruise for Corfu, the land of the Phaeacians. The Liston Square will be mournfully decorated, but it still retains its splendour and beauty.

Day 2Good Friday

On Good Friday in Corfu, 33 “epitaph” processions march through the town, from noon till night. The event is unique and awe-inspiring, a truly unforgettable experience.

Day 3Holy Saturday

During the Holy Saturday we remain in Corfu town to participate in the colourful local traditions of “Botides” and “Mastela”. At night we participate in the resurrection mass and the spectacular celebrations around the town.

Day 4Easter Sunday

On Easter Sunday we go for a cruise tour to admire the wild beauty of northern Corfu island: The steep rocks with the peculiar geological formations, the secluded beaches with the pebble or sand shores, the scenic traditional villages, the lovely natural springs and many more.

We will visit Agni Beach for swimming and then Kassiopi for lunch. Of course we will visit the Sidari with the erotic Canal D’Amour. After having lunch in Palaiokastritsa we will return to Corfu for the night.

Day 5Easter Monday

For the last day of your stay on Corfu, we have planned a visit to the famous ‘Achilleion’, a palace built by the Empress Elisabeth of Austria, also known as Sisi.

The design of the palace, which was named after the hero Achilles, was intended to represent an ancient Phaeacian palace and it is a monument to platonic romanticism. There you will marvel at the impressive statue of ‘Dying Achilles’ depicting the last moments of the Homeric hero. After being shot by an arrow in his only vulnerable point of his body, his heel, he farewells the world while taking his last breaths in the world of the living. 

In the afternoon, we depart for Gaios at Antipaxos to have lunch and afterwards return to Parga.
