There, where the Ionian blue unites harmonically with the most beautiful part of the island of Faiakes,
is the one chosen by the Empress Elisabeth to build her palace-refuge. And in the serenity of the seashore
a marble dock was made for her, reminding the myth of the petrified ship of Odysseus.
Later, the Kaiser of Germany Wilhelm II, after becoming owner of the palace,
linked the marble dock with the edge of the Achilleion with a plain but admirable arch bridge.
Even today, after a whole century, as day leaves and night takes its place, you can see the reflection of
fine ladies with fancy dresses and men with strict top hats and neat beards, crossing the stone arch.
Welcome to Kaiser Bridge!
