The main city, Corfu, is one of the most beautiful in Greece as it has preserved its Venetian character and charm. Built between two fortresses, visitors will be able to admire the delightful Italian and French buildings, narrow streets, Byzantine churches and historical buildings. At the one end of the city is the old Venetian fortress which has been cut off from the main land by a 25m wide moat. West of this fortress one finds the striking Spianada square and several museums such as the Archaeological Museum and the Museum of Asian Art which is housed in the Palace of the English Lord High Commissioner. Additionally, 10km from the city is the beautiful Achillio Palace which was originally the palace of Elisabeth, also known as Sissy, the empress of Austria. Today it is operated as a very fashionable casino.

  • Corfu Promenade Often voted the prettiest town in Greece, Corfu is enclosed by two Italianate castles, creating a cityscape that reminds many travelers of Nice. The romantic architecture of the municipal buildings, palaces and villas reflects the 400-year influence of the Venetian empire.
  • Easter in Corfu In Greece, Easter is the most important festival of the year, and Corfu has some of the biggest and brightest celebrations. Torch processions, fireworks, scarlet-clad marching bands and clay pots of water flying into the street.
  • Traditional Dress The woman’s costume is a richly embroidered, long-sleeved vest over an ankle-length dress, with ornaments and jewels hanging from the bodice. Over that is a fancy apron and around the head is the kefalopodia—a flower and jewelery decorated coloured bonnet enclosed by a pure white, long scarf.
  • Tsoureki At the end of the long 50-day fast before Easter, Greeks savour their first bite into an oven-hot wedge of this sweet bread. Crimson-coloured eggs symbolizing the blood of Christ are baked right into the braided dough. Tsourekia are beautiful to look at and delicious to eat. Enjoy them for breakfast with a Greek coffee or later in the day with a piece of graviera cheese (similar to Swiss) and a glass of chilled rosé wine.
  • Botides On the Saturday morning before Easter, just as the clock is about to strike 11, the locals throw botides, red clay pots—small or huge—full of water down onto the stone paved street below their windows. When the smashing is done, you may grab a piece of broken pot to take home. It will bring you good luck for the rest of the year.
  • Apokries Apokries (carnival) is handed down from Dionysos, the god of wine. Before the discipline of Lent begins, there are 3 weeks of feasting, dancing, colourful costumes, a big music parade and wonderful parties. The island is home to at least 19 active marching bands, each one with as many as 200 musicians. There is a healthy rivalry among the groups who give regular weekend concerts and are a colourful addition to Holy Week.
  • Entertainment Corfu is an island filled with culture and traditions. Throughout the summer months there are numerous festivals where visitors can see the traditional music, dancing and costumes worn throughout the ages. Other interesting places to visit are wickerwork, silverwork and jewelry making workshops that can be found in various villages throughout the island. Additionally, Corfu is famous for its lively night life and offers a wide range of bars and cafes suitable for all tastes and preferences.
