Pop in the local souvenir shops where you can purchase a great variety of objects - from typical local delicacies like kumquat products or extra virgin olive oil to handmade jewelry, unique artisanal products, and fashionable clothing. Following your exciting walk, sit down, relax, and take delight in a refreshing ginger beer - Corfu’s popular soft drink - or a sumptuous Corfiot meal while immersing in the city's vibrant atmosphere!
