Reached by a long walk through now unkempt gardens the building exterior is showing all the signs of on going neglect. The inside is a little better and some of the exhibits especially the photos are interesting. The staff however seem disinterested. Is it worth the cost of reaching the place (bus, taxi, petit train) and the entrance fee. No... More

If you are headed to Kanoni, stop to check this beautiful palace and the park that surround it (bus no2 stops just in front of the gate).you can stroll around park and discover remains of the ancient town of Corfu or visit museum. Perfect getaway from summer heat.

Had been trying to find Mon Repos for several years, and managed it this year, We were able to park closeby. It is quite a walk to the house through the gardens which didn't look too well cared for. The house outside looked a bit run down, but there was only a nominal sum to enter. I expected the rooms... More

We visited this large house as part of a ship's excursion. I think this attraction would be hard for individual visitors to find as the signage was obscure. There was just a small oval blue and red sign over a gate with these words printed on it, "Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh was born here. Then, when we entered the... More

Just a 10 min walk from our hotel, a lovely house, now a museum , and large gardens. Birthplace of Duke of Edinburgh. Beautiful peaceful walk with a great variety of trees and plants, and some interesting ruins.

Put on some decent shoes and swimwear and head up the road behind Gamitso Bay and Nautilus. It's a 15 minute walk to the gate and a good hour round the woodland. On the way round you can pay to see inside the house where Prince Phillip was born - it's worth a look - but keep walking to the... More

Finding Mon Repos is a bit of a challenge, signage is inadequate and parking is difficult. The gardens and grounds are gorgeous, really lush and green. There are several ruined temples to check out too. We were however totally unprepared for the number of mosquitoes! The palace itself was closed, and although it is free to explore the grounds, we...

Beautiful house and gardens in a terrible state. Deserted and neglected. When we arrived a large coach was parked right in front of the gate and consequently we drove by several times unable to see the entrance. Wish we hadn't bothered. There was a sign that said it was "open" but there was no one around to give us any... More

This was 4 euros each to get in and houses some rooms furnished as they might of been when the King of Greece used this as his summer house and other areas show artefacts and exhibitions about archeology, and history. The walk to the house through the surrounding grounds is beautiful as there are a variety of trees and flowers... More
