Description

BC. The three forts of the town, designed by renowned Venetian engineers, were used for four centuries to defend the maritime trading interests of the Republic of Venice against the Ottoman Empire. In the course of time, the forts were repaired and partly rebuilt several times, more recently under British rule in the 19th century. UNESCO added the Old Town to the World Heritage List in 2007.

Lots of history within these old walls of Corfu. I had a chance to walk around at night and half the morning strolling around the old town, simply admiring the architecture.

Great day out, cobbled street and little shops are a must.

Go by car or take one of the day or night trips arranged locally.

This is also called Kerkyra and is a small city with a lot of personality. Lots of small shops and crowded markets within a jumble of narrow streets. Fun to just walk around and watch the Greeks.

If you go to Corfu you have to visist the Old town, it's the thing that gives "soul" to the island. The small streets, wonderful coffee bars and amazing shops make this place a paradise on the Earth.
It's amazing for those who want to have a crazy night and both for families or romantic dates. The old town is my personal favourite on this island.

I loved the Old Town on Corfu, it is beautiful and the shops are amazing. The restaurants are great but the best thing of all is the atmosphere. I would say it is not at all disabled friendly which is often the case in these 'old towns'. Would seriously recommend....

Check out the jewelry stores and be amazed at the artful original works to be purchased at very fair prices. Also look for old Greek designs (such as historical coin replicas) and replicas of famous pieces. Shopkeepers are friendly, talkative, and interesting to visit with if you stop by on a low day when they have time to talk.

Really great place to wander around. Totally different vibe in the day than in the night, so it's worth coming twice.

Δε γίνεται να σκεφτείς την Κέρκυρα χωρίς να σχηματίσεις στο μυαλό σου αυτή την εικόνα! Τα στενά δρομάκια της με τα πολύχρωμα κτίρια (πολλά από τα οποία είναι λίγο παραμελημένα, ωστόσο με κάποιο τρόπο αυτό συμπληρώνει την όλη εικόνα) τα ρούχα απλωμένα σε σκοινιά από το ένα κτίριο στο άλλο και την αίσθηση ότι μια μουσική πλανάται στο χώρο. Αφιερώστε όσο χρόνο μπορείτε για να περιπλανηθείτε στα σοκάκια ανάμεσα σε σπίτια, μαγαζάκια και καφέ, εστιατόρια κι ιστορικά κτίρια και πραγματικά νομίζω πως δε θα το βαρεθείτε ποτέ.
