Fodor's Review

The oldest cultural institution in modern Greece, the Corfu Reading Society was founded in 1836. The building, filled with books and archives relating to the Ionian islands, stands opposite the High Commissioner's Palace and has an impressive exterior staircase leading up to a loggia. Inside is a book-lover's delight, with 19th-century decor that is evocative testimony to the "English age" that gave Corfu so much of its character.
