Departing from Parga enjoy a lovely boat trip across the Ionian to one of the largest and most famous of the Ionian Islands, the island of Corfu. Corfu town is full of interesting places to visit, from museums and parks to the many restaurants and wonderful shopping areas for a little bit of retail therapy.
CORFU: Since the time, Homer chanted the fertile and loved land of the island of the Phoenicians and up to our mortal days Corfu remains one of the most beautiful parts of Hellas. Privileged by nature more than any other island of the Ionian Sea, Corfu obtained a refinement from which its local civilization emerged and prospered as centuries went by.
The City of Corfu: There is no place like the city of Corfu, which combines with such harmony the many different elements of the place. While the old Venetian fort dominates at the east of the city with an artificial defensive gap, the "contra fossa", in the city of Corfu you can identify characteristics of each of the many civilizations that influenced the city’s persona and impressive architecture.
You see cantounia, the narrow and irregular paths of the city that originate from the way the Greek inhabitants used to build their houses, close to one another. But these same houses are a mix of Byzantine, Venetian and English architecture, so beautifully combined that generate a harmonic and unique whole.
The visitor can enjoy the sea at the beach of Mon Repos and then find himself at one of the many restaurants and cafes at the square of Spianada or Liston, people watching. Also in the city you can visit:
The Archaeological Museum 5 Vraila Str.
