Corfu, an ideal summer destination

Discover the beautiful Ionian island that offers everything from layers of history to unspoilt natural beauty

There are certainly plenty of reasons to include the amazing Ionian island of Corfu in your list of Greek places to visit.

Its rich multi-cultural heritage, its amazing monuments, its stunning beaches and its excellent weather all year round explain why Corfu is one of the most popular Mediterranean destinations.

Corfu Town bears evidence of the Venetians, French and British waves of influence, due to the successive dominations of these peoples.

The beautifully preserved Old Town of Corfu, a UNESCO world heritage site, is home to many palaces, fortresses and public buildings of the Venetian rule.

Strolling through a complex of narrow cobblestone streets and vaulted passages, the so-called ‘kantoúnia’, will make you feel as if you’ve travelled to Genoa or Naples.

The most important attractions of the city include the Spianáda, the largest and most impressive square in the Balkans, Listón, the city’s trademark, where the aristocrats used to enjoy their promenades, the impressive 15th century Old Fortress, the Saint Michael and George Palace and the numerous churches of the city.
