As a testament to the rich heritage of this evergreen island, there stands the very wondrously preserved Old Town – a site that has been declared as one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites. Here, palaces, fortresses and public houses blend uniquely with narrow cobbled streets, small alleyways and tiny squares.
Corfu has deep intellectual and artistic roots which is evident in many of its museums, cultural life and even to its Italian-inspired cuisine. The Museum of Art, the Archaeological Museum, the Byzantine Museum, The Banknote Museum and the Dionysios Solomos Museum are top-notch picks for museum tours.
A visit to Corfu wouldn’t be complete without having seen the attractions that hark back to her very rich history. Not to be missed are the numerous churches in the city, including the Church of St. Spyridon, who is the patron saint of the island. The Saint Michael and George Palace at the Spianáda is equally impressive too.
