About Corfu Town

Corfu's Old Town achieved World Heritage status in 2007. A cosmopolitan mix of many cultures this is surely one of the best island capitals in Greece!

Dominated by two impressive Venetian fortresses and graced with the architecture of several different cultures the old town is a delight to explore. A maze of narrow streets wind beneath tall narrow buildings, each turn bringing you to yet another tucked-away square or a Byzantine church, with glimpses of the sea never far away.

As well as its historic churches, castles and other monuments many hours can be spent exploring this fascinating old town and visiting the bustling early morning market.

Shopping is fabulous, from hand crafted jewellery, ceramics and olive wood products to designer clothes. Set along the arches of the Liston, are plenty of cafes in which to recuperate after your day of sightseeing and shopping.
