Corfu Town Tours

OVERVIEW

Corfu Town or Kerkyra, the capital of Corfu, is one of the most beautiful and interesting towns of Greece and a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2007. Corfu Old Town is a unique destination with a fascinating, multicultural heritage including influences from the Venetian, French and British who all occupied the island in different periods. Much of the town is a maze of narrow cobblestone streets, weaving between five -or six- storey Venetian buildings, painted in pastel yellows, reds and oranges.


Emerging from the streets of the Old Town we discover the Esplanade (or Spianada), Corfu’s largest square (it is also the largest square in Balkans), which comprises a cricket pitch, gardens, monuments and a bandstand! Here, many parades are held throughout the year, always featuring some of Corfu’s traditional marching bands. At one edge of the Esplanade lies the Old Fortress – an exceptionally well-preserved example of Venetian military engineering. On the other side, we find the Liston, a beautiful arcade of cafés and restaurants, designed in the French style. This is where Corfiots love to take a coffee, chat with friends or simply just watch the world go by. On the northern side of Spianada Square, there is the Palace of Saint Michael and Saint George, which now houses the Museum of Asian Art (only one of its kind in Greece) with over 10,000 artefacts from prehistoric times which have been collected from all over the Asian continent.


Other highlights of the Town include the beautifully decorated Saint Spyridon church, which holds the remains of the island’s patron saint, the Town Hall (previously the town theatre and opera house) with its richly decorated exterior and the New Venetian Fortress. Corfu Old Town also boasts a number of interesting museums and galleries, easily accessible to the visitor, including the recently renovated Archaeological Museum, the Byzantine Museum of Antivouniotissa or the Casa Parlante Corfu Living History Museum. Visitors to Corfu Town can also explore the lovely array of shops selling quaint souvenirs, authentic local products, Greek designer fashionable clothing and jewellery and so much more!


As Corfu Town is conveniently located in the centre of the island, a visit  to Corfu Town can be easily combined with a visit to other popular Corfu attractions. Combine your tour of Corfu Town with a tour of Achillion Palace with our Private Tour to Achillion, Kanoni & Corfu Town, with a beach escape in our Private Tour: Corfu Beaches: Paleokastritsa & Glyfada Beach or visit the Town as part of your Best of Corfu: Full Day Island Tour.
