Charming cosmopolitan with diverse scenery.

Welcome to one of the most diverse, greenest and fascinating Greek islands, the seventh largest and the setting of seveal myths and legends. It is here where Odysseus was shipwrecked and sent on his way whilst the Sea God Poseidon is also said to have settled down here - allegedly. Corfu Town is cosmopolitan, charming and friendly, and an ideal place to explore the narrow alleyways, soak up the atmosphere and natter with the locals at one of the many cafes, bars and restaurants. You will probably be surprised by the Italian feel, largely thanks to the Venetian architecture - and the Greeks also offer a warm welcome. 

Corfu captivates visitors with its innumerable delights, inexhaustible nature, architectural wealth and refined character. The Old Town has a unique atmosphere and quaint buildings that preserve ancient Byzantine and Venetian craftsmanship.

Paleokastritsa offers amazing scenery, endless olive groves, rolling hills and secluded coves. According to some scholars, it is here in the former capital of the Phaeacians, where Nausica found Ulysses. The view of Pontikonisi island and Vlacherna Monastery is enchanting.
