Best seen on foot, Corfu town is a mixture of the medieval and the modern. The old fortress bears the insignia of the Venetian Republic. Stroll along the Esplanade, planted with palms and eucalyptus by the French, see the English cricket pitch, view the palace of St George, now a museum but once home to Corfu’s British rulers.
Wander along the narrow streets and small plazas. Corfu town provides a wealth of shopping opportunities, so whether you need to shop for family or friends you will be sure to find the perfect gift.
