Corfu Feature


Top Reasons to Go to Corfu

Corfu Town: Recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, this sophisticated little gem of a city glows with a profusion of picturesque reminders of its Venetian, French, and British past.

Some Enchanted Islet: As they savor the famous view of Pontikonisi, from the patio of a Starbucks in suburban Kanoni, how many of today's visitors know that tiny "Mouse Island" was thought by the ancients to be Odysseus's ship turned to stone by Poseidon?

Mon Repos: Owned by the Greek royal family before they were deposed, the elegant neoclassic villa of Mon Repos, with its enchanting seaside gardens and secret beach, was originally built as a love gift from a British lord high commissioner to his wife.

Homer's City of the Phaeacians: Once extolled by Odysseus, Paleokastritsa remains a swimmable, sunable spectacle of grottoes, cliffs, white sand, and turquoise waters.
