The Achillion, or Achilles' palace, could be renamed Sissi's palace since its fame is inextricably linked to that of the romantic Austrian empress who came here for her summer holidays. Built in 1890, the palace is a triumph of neoclassical architecture, sumptuous furnishings and sculptures. Dedicate some time also to the elegant gardens and go up to the marble balcony to admire a fresco depicting Achilles, the hero to whom Sissi dedicated the villa.
