  • Overview You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: Kazmi   vexatiousroughly90  

    With a history spanning centuries, steeped in the mythological presence of the ancient gods and goddesses which have become linked with Greek culture and history over the years, Corfu stands as one of those island refuges which stretches back over the years to times when legends walked the earth, and mere mortals were only pawns in a greater game of chess played out by the gods. Today, Corfu is a modern tourist destination with some of the most beautiful island views in the country combined with old-world charms and UNESCO World Heritage sites like the old town itself, making for the perfect destination for the intrepid adventurer. From places such as the Bay of St. George to Palaio Frourio and the Garden of the People, Corfu is a treasure-trove of sights and experiences that will literally take your breath away.

    Corfu has long been an important destination on the waters, and this importance can be seen in the number of ancient castles that rise up in strategic locations all over the island. From as far back as the ancient Phoenicians, Corfu has been at the heart of naval dominance of the surrounding seas, although its recent history has seen it transform into a celebration of history rather than a strategic dot on a map. From the mountainous areas of the northern regions to the sandy beaches of the south and everything in between, Corfu is a wonder to behold.

    These days it is an important island for the production of olive oil and wines, making it a popular port of call for the region, but tourism is also a major draw, with plenty of ancient temples, architecture, history, and natural beauty to explore. A word of warning, however: the roads throughout Corfu are extremely treacherous and winding, so if you are someone who suffers from motion sickness easily, come prepared.

    What is the cheap way to travel within Corfu?

    The economical way to get around within Corfu is local public buses. But it’s a little hard to get the schedule of buses because it keeps changing without any notice.

    In such a case, you can inquire from some local or there is a Kafeneon mostly next to every bus stop, you can ask them when the next bus would be arriving.

    Can I ride mopeds or bicycles on Corfu roads?

    Mopeds and bicycles are not much road-friendly in Corfu. But if you are still fond of riding a scooter then wear a crash hat and never drink before riding.

    How suitable is to hire a car in Corfu?

    Renting a car is the most recommended and easy way to travel around Corfu. The roads are not much open but still easy to drive.

    How does it feel travelling around the sea on a motorboat in Corfu?

    This is highly recommended. You should experience hiring a motorboat to travel around the sea. It will feel you charming and beautiful views, fresh and chilly breeze, no doubt a memorable experience. Smaller boats can be rented without a need for a maritime licence.

    There is nothing like cruising around the island, dropping to a bay, finding a nice restaurant for lunch. The staff will often jump in and help you dock and assist in getting everyone off the boat.

      • Loved Corfu Old Town - especially when I found Mike the Welsh barber and got a haircut. Entrance to the fort is free and nice views from up there. Love the tiny old narrow streets.
      • So much to see and do. Nature is abundant in growth, produce and variety. Beautiful scenery and friendly people. History alive in architecture.
      • Lovely place but need lots of work around definitely clean because streets are very dirty. If you booking hotel make sure they update pictures because lots of them are from 1990 and looks lovely but when you arrive unfortunately looks awfull.
      • Corfu an idyllic location to relax and kick back. People are friendly. Best time to visit is between May and September. North of the island has many touristy spots.
      • Take the 'snake road' involving 25 sharp turn switch backs rising I think 1,200+ feet above sea level to the Golden Fox restaurant at the top for a spectacular look out over the Adriatic Sea. Same road driven by 007 in a James Bond thriller.
