An island immersed in legendary Greek history, Corfu’s ancient sites have survived through the centuries to remain standing today. Corfu Town is a maze of narrow, stone-paved streets dominated by two stunning Venetian castles – the Old and New Fortresses. Other architectural attractions on this Greek Island include well-preserved palaces – one famously home to the Greek royal family.
Monasteries, chapels and old Roman ruins are dotted around the Corfu countryside, while mosaics, sculptures and frescoes have been carefully retained in their original domains for public viewing.
Rich in Mediterranean flavours, traditional cuisine on the island consists of local ingredients. In particular, olives, lemons, tomatoes and freshly caught fish feature strongly in most dishes.
Find a waterfront taverna and dine on the terrace overlooking the sea, as homemade Greek dishes are lovingly prepared and served to your table. Back in the tranquillity of your own private villa, feast on a long, lazy lunch of grilled fish and fluffy fresh bread drizzled with just-pressed, golden olive oil.
