Achilleion is a palace built in Corfu by Empress of Austria Elisabeth of Bavaria, also known as Sisi! Sisi was a very beautiful woman, powerful but tragically vulnerable. The Palace was built in 1890 ,was designed with the mythical hero Achilles as its central theme.She has become a historical icon, is consired to have been a non-conformist who abhorred protocol and at the same time a tragic figure! Queen Elisabeth of Austria has been one of my favourites royal historical icons ,and has inspired me not only for her beauty but for her personality.I think anyone deserves to visit Achilleion least once in his life,to feel like a Queen or King in the Royal gardens of the Palace!

I love this dress i'm wearing in the photo reminds me of something Greek Ancient style, with colorful polca dot pattern combined with gold gladiator style shoes ideal for holidays!
