Corfu Town Holidays

Corfu Town is one of the most interesting cities in Greece due to the heavy influence of the Venetians who for centuries controlled the island. Like the other Ionian islands Corfu was never occupied by the Turks, which gives it a character very different from the rest of Greece. However, Corfu town has seen other influences as well including the ... Read more

Wonderful for a half day or so walking, visiting shops, and stopping for delicious sweet treats and local dining. The narrow streets are perfect for an intimate view of local color. Walk to the edge of town and you'll see many more local people doing their shopping and daily strolls

Architecture is interesting, different from Greek islands such as Santorini or Mykonos; this area has a very old, solid, staid feel about it, as if the same families have lived there forever - and in fact many families trace their ancestors quite far back.

A visit to Corfu Town is a calming experience, for reflecting on days gone by as well as seeing the vibrancy of this island's culture.
