Corfu is a most impressive island as it has numerous sights, like monuments, churches, or other notable locations. Walking through the Old Town of Corfu is aesthetically, a sight in itself especially with its narrow alleys and the old houses. Its architecture is particularly reminiscent of its Venetian, British and French rulers. Every visitor is enchanted by the beautiful mansions, the small palaces, the narrow footpaths, the byzantine churches and the squares.
Some of the main attractions of the town centre are the St. Spyridon Church, the Archaeological Museum, the Spianada, the renowned Liston, the Ionian Academy as well as the Old and New Fortresses. In the area of Kanoni, a 10-minute drive from the centre, you may enjoy the stunning views of the Pontikonisi and the Vlahairena Monastery.
Other attractions are the Achilles palace Achilleion, Mon repo, the summer residence of the house of Habsberg, the ghost town of Ano Perithia , built deep into the mountains of the island’s northern coast, the Byzantine Museum of Antivouniotissa with its unique murals and paintings and finally Palaiokastritsa with its exotic bays, its pine tree woods and the picturesque restaurants that offer astounding views.
