Corfu island is one of the most beautiful and famous islands of Greece. Its historical connection with Europe throughout the centuries has left behind a large amount of monuments and the locals have developed a unique cosmopolitan feeling, combined with tradition, that actually is a special mix of all those different cultures that affected their lives through the years.
Corfu island is located on the north-western side of Greece and was one of the first greek islands to develop tourism accommodations and to welcome tourists. Already in the 60’s Corfu island provided to travellers from all around the world a wonderful experience of fun and natural beauty combined with tradition and culture.
Exploring Corfu island can turn out to be a great experience for everyone. Once you decide to visit it, all you have to do is rent a bike and start discovering all the unique places that you may discover. The picturesque traditional villages full of lovely and smiley locals, ready to welcome you and let you be part of their small community for a few days are for sure a perfect choice to make if you want to carry with you new pictures and senses, while travelling back home.
The monuments and the must visit places in Corfu Island are so many that one, might be difficult to choose. Indicatively, in Corfu Old Town, just a couple kilometres away from the Airport of Corfu and the Port of Corfu, if you rent a bike and visit them one by one, you would absorb centuries of culture and civilisation in a small radius from the centre of Corfu Town. You will find the two Venetian Castles of Corfu, the Museum of Asian Art, the Liston, the Spianada Square, the Mon Repos Palace and of course the old Town which still maintains the architecture and culture of the past, combined with the technology of today, with many of the buildings counting even up to 250 years of age!
