5 good reasons to go

The thousand-village island
The thousand-village island
Exploring the island of Corfu means adventuring out into the old town of Corfu, which looks like an old Venetian town. Its incredible charm granted it a place as a Unesco World Heritage site. Not forgetting the villages of Kassiopi, Palaia Peritheia, Liapades, Kouloura, Lefkimi, which managed to preserve their soul, far from the crowds.
Beaches with stunning backdrops

Going to Corfu without dipping your feet in the water would be a terrible shame. The island is bursting with heavenly beaches! Gouvia, Aghios Gordios, Sidari and Myrtiotissa are simply enchanting. The inlets, white sandy beaches and pebble beaches are filled with beauty. Lazing on the beachor doing water sports - everything is possible.
A divine heritage

Lots of churches and monasteries are scattered around this Orthodox island. When in Corfu, you cannot miss out on visiting these religious sites. History and great views combine to make for must-do excursions. Pantocrator church, the Vlachernes monasteries, Paleokastritsa and Paraskevi are all captivating sights to behold.
Admiring mysterious nature
Admiring mysterious nature
The Greek island boasts beautiful nature that is both green and rocky. Touring Corfu is the perfect way to discover the island’s most amazing treasures. Cape Drastis and the Channel of Love boast some of the most breath-taking landscapes. The sea seems to forge these landscapes as it pleases. Take a hike up and admire the secret belvederes.
A fusion of Mediterranean flavours
A fusion of Mediterranean flavours
Corfu’s cuisine is at a crossroads between Italian, Turkish and Greek specialities. The island’s gastronomy is generous and rather high in calories: the meat, fish, vegetables and cheese served are often fried. For dessert, the honey pastries are mouth-watering, especially when served with kumquat liqueur - a local citrus fruit.

To see / do

Culture and history

A high-perched monastery

A high-perched monastery

Paleokastritsa Monastery overlooks the Ionian Sea. Two of its floors can be visited by the public, and the last is only for the monks. This 18th-century Orthodox monastery has a lovely garden, chapel and a museum displaying cultural artefacts. A ravishing change of scenery from the beaches and hikes.

A fortress filled with surprises

A fortress filled with surprises

From the upper part of the town of Corfu, the fortress watches out for potential attackers. The ramparts are home to hidden landmarks: bastions, the Saint Georges’ church with its Greek temple feel and vestiges from various island occupants. Walking around the ramparts is the perfect way to gaze out over the capital and sea.

A majestic palace

Get a plane ticket to Corfu, not Austria! Following in the footsteps of the Empress Elizabeth, Achilleion is a must-see site. The palace was built as per Sissi’s desires and dedicated to the hero Achilles. It draws its inspiration from antique villas, with its peristyle, columns and frescos. Objects formerly owned by the Empress are displayed.

Outings

A rock and sea bar

If you want to enjoy the beautiful landscape, swim, party and have a drink, head to the Grotta Beach Bar in Paleokastritsa. You will have to climb down a few steps to get there. An unexpected sight awaits you: the bar hollowed out into the rock offers a magnificent view over the turquoise sea. A pontoon and diving board make swimming much more fun.

Typical meal in Temploni
