Do not skip a visit to the Archeological Museum and the Casa Parlante Mansion. Walk around the central square, Spianada and Liston that you will soon find is the meeting place of the whole island.

Next, visit the Achillion, the Austrian Empress Elizabeth of Bavaria’s summer house. One of the most famous royal palaces in Europe.

Drive your car up to Pantokratoras Mount, the highest peak in Corfu, with 960 meters of altitude and enjoy the view over the entire island and the Ionian Sea.

An old Greek song says “Corfu, Corfu and Pontikonisi” so you really have to go on a boat ride and get to this tiny green island from the 12th century.
