Learn More about Corfu

Corfu, romantic pearl of the Ionian Sea with Italian charm Located between the heel of Italy and the west coast of Greece, a few kilometers from the coast of Albania, Corfu (or Kerkira), which legend says is blessed by the gods, marks the border between the western and eastern Roman empires. An island that combines history and summer atmosphere, the mountain with the sea, the classical spirit with modernity. You will find a huge choice of beaches and coves among the most beautiful of the Ionian islands, but also a cultural heritage and a hinterland that have always ensured its tourist success. Known for its capital city,Corfu also offers a beautiful hinterland with small picturesque villages, green valleys that plunge towards paradisiacal sandy beaches bordering a sea of emerald and turquoise waters. The old town of Corfu, at the confluence of cultures and civilizations, is the jewel of the island. It offers an extraordinary architectural heritage, a true mosaic of European influences and you will be surprised to discover between the imposing fortresses of the colored buildings that remind Italy while the large pedestrian esplanade is lined with French-style arcades on the model of the Rue de Rivoli in Paris. A little further on, the Palace of Saint Michael and Saint George reminds us that Corfu was part of the British protectorate until it became part of Greece in 1864. The historic center bounded by the Old Port and the two forts includes a number of small neighborhoods that should be explored on foot: the popular and medieval Campiello on the hill above the harbor; Kofineta which extends around the Spianada; Agii Apostoli around the Orthodox Cathedral of St. Spiliotissa (Mitropolis); while nestled around the Neo Frourio is what remains of the old Jewish quarter. Organize yourself to come to Corfu early in the morning and leave very late in the evening to avoid the crowds of tourists who disembark from buses at 10 am in high season
