The cosmopolitan island of Corfu is probably the most famous island in the Ionian Sea, and one of the most popular in the Mediterranean. Each year, Corfu attracts thousands of visitors who come to enjoy the marvel in the island’s beaches, the UNESCO listed Old Town of the Capital, the abundance of natural beauties and Corfu’s arts and music.
Visit the Old Town’s alleys, squares and fortified wall and enjoy your walk in some of the prettiest cobbled streets in Europe. Corfu town (or Chora) is home to the Spianada square, where a variety of events, such as concerts, parades, cricket tournaments and more, take place every year.
Apart from the beaches, greenery, quaint towns and villages, and a plethora of significant museums, Corfu is renowned for its literary and musical culture. You can visit the Asian Art Museum in the Palace of St. Michael and St. George, the Archaeological Museum, the Byzantine Museum and the Dionysios Solomos Museum, or you can enjoy a performance by one of the 40 philharmonic orchestras.
