The mythical home of the Olympian God, Poseidon, and the island where Odysseus was shipwrecked in Homer’s epic, The Odyssey.
Welcome to one of the most diverse, verdant and fascinating Greek islands – the seventh largest and the setting of seveal myths and legends. It is on Corfu’s shores where Odysseus was shipwrecked and sent on his way, and where the god of the sea, Poseidon, is said to have settled.
Corfu Town is cosmopolitan, charming and friendly. You can easily lose yourself here as you explore the narrow alleyways, soak up the atmosphere and meet the locals at one of the many cafes, bars and restaurants. You may be surprised by the Italian feel, largely thanks to the Venetian architecture, but you won’t be surprised by the Greek warm welcome.
Corfu captivates visitors with its innumerable delights, inexhaustible nature, architectural gems and refined character. The Old Town has a romantic atmosphere, complete with quaint buildings that preserve ancient Byzantine and Venetian craftsmanship.
Paleokastritsa village and bay set the heart beating with dazzling scenery, endless olive groves, rolling hills and secluded coves. According to some scholars, it is here in the former capital of the Phaeacians where Nausica found Ulysses. The view of Pontikonisi island and Vlacherna Monastery is enchanting. If you have the opportunity, head to this spot to watch the sunset.
