However, Corfu town has seen other influences as well including the ... Read more

The population of the town of Corfu is about 30.000 and is quite cosmopolitan. It is an interesting mixture of old tavernas, new cafes, discos, clubs and shops of all types plus an amazing old city that sits in a protected area between the two fortresses.

me & my friend Shirley went on a boat & bbq trip on Theo's boat A great day and great

Naples, Florida

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.


One of the best vacations we ever had!!! Stayed in Sidari and had fun - Corfu is a beautiful island!


Don't leave without visiting Achilleion Palace and the Old Town
