Corfu is one of the first Greek islands that I have traveled on my last family vacation at the age of 16. We are in a beautiful beach resort. Paleaokastritsa North West Island But take advantage of local buses. Explore the towns and villages of Ipsos, Sidari, Dassia, Kassiopi and Agios Stefanos. Never forget the capital city of Corfu Town.
Since coming back to Corfu Town several times in the last few years, because the canoes normally run to the adjacent Paxos Island, which is home to my mother and father, my stepfather.
Although it is the main port of the island and one of the largest and most populous cities (30,000 people in the Ionian Islands), Corfu is one of the most beautiful capitals in Greece.
Like us, you may find yourself traveling through Corfu to another part of the island or to other islands, so this is the best way to spend 24 hours in Corfu.
Visit the old and new fortress.
In the past, the two fortresses were linked by large walls to protect the inner inhabitants. But the wall was destroyed and today only two doors remain.
You will find the old fort on a small island on the east side of Corfu. Get through the short stone bridge near Espalanade and through the other gate is Porta di Spilia.
Located just above the old port of Corfu’s new fort, it may not be as interesting as it used to be. It has some wonderful views from the top. It is also full of underground tunnels that run all the way to the old fortress and to the old part of town.
Relax in Theotoki Square
One of my favorite squares in Corfu Town, especially in the late spring when these beautiful purple flowers bloom.
Explore the Museum
Corfu has many outstanding museums, from archaeological museums to the Asian Art Museum.
It is surprising to receive the admiration of the Ming Dynasty pottery in the British colonial palace in Greece. But the Museum of Asian Art is worth a visit.
You will find Japanese ukiyo-e prints, Indian sculptures and Tibetan temple art on the display, and a rear gray backyard with stunning views of the Andaman Sea.
Head to the dock
This is my favorite spot in Corfu. You can join the local people for a swim or enjoy a Greek salad and frappé at one of the waterfront cafés overlooking the old fortress.
Corfu’s rocky cobbled streets are lined with lovely little shops selling everything from olive oil, soap and honey to silver jewelery and beautiful local handicrafts.
Try not to be arrested by LEGO police.
I can not even remember how I met this man. But he is a very poor photographer, so he spent a lot of time hunting for the right time.
Wake up early enough to catch the sunrise.
When the fast boat to Paxos left early in the morning, we were fortunate enough to have a spectacular sunset over the water.
Sunsets are always incredible. But there is something even better about the sun; There is silence in the air and the wonderful feeling that everything starts to slow down.
