Corfu, nicknamed the Emerald Island is situated off the northwest coast of Greece in the Ionian Sea, surrounded dazzling blue waters. This island offers a warm Mediterranean climate, charming historic sites, blue flag beaches, and scenic natural landscapes of hills, rock formations, and mountains offering incredible hiking experiences. There is lots to explore in Corfu, including the island’s pretty local villages.
Visiting Corfu will feel like stepping back in time to a bygone area; the island has a rich cultural heritage that is best discovered at the Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage. This beautifully preserved ancient site is filled with Venetian, French, and British buildings, fortresses, and palaces among its narrow cobblestone laneways and hidden squares, plus quaint boutiques, tavernas, cafes, and souvenir stores.
Another highlight of Corfu is its top-class museums which allow an interesting insight into the island’s culture and history. The Archaeological Museum of Corfu is a must-visit, home to historic remains from the ancient city of Corfu, from marble statues to pottery and temple ruins. Another museum worth noting is the Casa Parlante Museum, a historic mansion recreating daily life in Corfu during the 19th century.
