Will Green Bus work for us?

We will be in Corfu for 1 day (on cruise ship).

We would like to spend the morning in Paleokastritsa and the afternoon in the Old Town.

To save $ and have more control over our day, would we be able to take the Green bus from Old Town to Paleok....., relax on the beach, hike up to the hilltop Theotokos Monastery, take a few photos in the garden, then return by bus (or taxi?) to Old Town. We would tour the old town on our own.

Is this feasible? Our port stop is from 8 am to 6 pm. in July.

Not enough time to do both///in my opinion//take a look at the trip adviser info

to walk up to the monastery and back, with a look around up there will take a good two hours

Hi

Most cruise ships do a combined coach trip with Paleokastritsa and Corfu Town for their passengers. Out of curiosity how much is your cruise line wanting for a similar one? A car and driver would yes be expensive but would allow you the maximum time to see both locations and give you full control over your day.

Ship's tour is $51 USD pp. MIght just book it and cancel later if I find something better.

Wondering if we could take the green bus there, spend 2 hours, hire a taxi on the spot at Paleo to bring us back to the town of Corfu which we could tour on our own.

There are only 2 of us.

Green Buses to Paleokastritsa from the Green Bus Terminal east of Corfu Port are 08.30-10.30-12.00-14.15-16.00. If your ship is not berthed at the jetty and a ship to shore tender is needed I doubt you would be able to get the 08:30 bus and its a 2hr wait for the next one. You could always hire a car for the day as there are a number of car hire offices near the Port Terminal. A small car (entry grade, Chevrolet matiz etc) is likely to be around 25e if over 25 yrs of age. Currently the ships tour would work out around 78e total. (a taxi from Paleokastritsa to Corfu Town would possibly be around 40/45e)
