Take a private Ηalf-Day Shore Excursion to uncover the charms of Corfu Town, a UNESCO designated World Heritage Site. Wander through the Old Town's little streets, visit its most important sights and enjoy a delicious lunch in a local restaurant!
DURATION 4.5 hour
After a pickup from your cruise ship by a private vehicle, head to the beautiful Corfu Town and get ready to discover the many charms of this UNESCO World Heritage Site!
See the large town square – the Esplanade – with its cricket pitch and bandstand, and admire the Venetian Old Fortress which lies alongside it. On the other side of the square, stroll along the wide pavement of the Liston, with its wonderful French-designed arcade housing numerous cafés and restaurants – a favourite spot for locals to meet and watch the world go by. Going back to the era of Venetian rule, access to the Liston was restricted to the nobility – only those whose family names could be found in the Libro d’Oro (Golden Book). Wandering through the Old Town, with its narrow cobblestone streets (''kantounia'' in Corfiot dialect) and distinctive Venetian architecture, pause to step inside the beautifully decorated St. Spyridon church, where the remains of the island’s patron saint are housed. And visit Corfu’s Town Hall Square, where the tastefully designed old Town Hall sits alongside the Duomo – the Catholic cathedral. Finally, enjoy some free time to shop for souvenirs before you visit a lovely local restaurant to enjoy a delicious three course lunch!
After soaking up the charms of this wonderful town, get back to your private vehicle and head to Corfu Cruise Port in good time for your departure!
