OVERVIEW

Corfu Town or Kerkyra, the capital of Corfu, has a population of around 30,000 inhabitants and is considered one of the most beautiful towns of Greece. Corfu Old Town is a unique destination, where the visitor can find a harmonious combination of Greek, Venetian, British and French influences. 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. In the heart of the Old Town there are also iconic landmarks, such as the church of St Spyridon, which holds the remains of the island’s patron saint, or the Town Hall (previously the town theatre and opera house) with its richly decorated exterior.


Emerging from the streets of the Old Town we discover the Esplanade (or Spianada), Corfu’s large town square (the largest 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 the 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 10,000 artefacts from prehistoric times and collected from all over the Asian continent. Corfu Old Town also has many museums and galleries, easily accessible to the visitor, as well, of course, as a very wide range of shops selling souvenirs, local products, clothes and more. The fact that Corfu Old Town has such a rich, well-maintained historical legacy was recognised in 2007 when it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
