The island of Corfu is a place of great natural beauty with rich vegetation and a fascinating coastline. There are mountains, rivers, lakes and many traditional villages such as Pelekas, Agios Markos and Kassiopi that are definitely worth exploring.
Corfu has many pebble and sandy beaches. Most of the larger beaches have umbrellas and sunbeds (at a price), and water sports facilities. If you are after a peaceful sunbathing session in a secluded cove, you will not be disappointed either. Just ask Eleni at Spiti Prifti reception for the best places.
The town of Corfu is famous for its historic sights. Countless visitors have been charmed by the picturesque cobbled streets of the Old Town, with its Venetian architecture and washing lines strung between the narrow buildings. Corfu town’s central square with its grassy cricket pitch and famous Liston colonnades was built in 1820. It’s ideal for people watching and a long cup of coffee in one of the many cafes there.
Like many other Greek islands, Corfu has many old churches. One of the most notable in the heart of Corfu town is dedicated to St Spyridon, the patron saint of Corfu. Other historical buildings of interest include:
One of the most characteristic Corfu sights is the green island of Pontikonissi (Mouse Island), just outside Corfu Town and well worth a visit.
About 9Km outside Corfu town is the Achilleion Palace, the summer home of the Empress Sisi of Austria in the late 1800s. It is a splendid neoclassical building with impressive gardens, a great view and works of art dedicated to ancient Greek ideals and the heroism of Achilles.
The island of Corfu is well known for its cultural treasures and natural beauty. Try to make some time in your holiday if you can to enjoy just a little of what it has to offer that is so special.
