The name Corfu (Kèrkyra) names not only the island, but also its capital, which is a beautiful, sophisticated and charming town. It is also one of the most elegant island capitals in the whole of Greece, as it was modernised for the 1994 EU summit.
The architecture in town is influenced by the French, the Italians and the British, but it still has a contemporary Greek feel to it, which makes it an amazing place to visit.
The Neo Frourio
The Neo Frourio, also known as New Fortress, is an old military complex loaded with interesting tunnels, cellars and dungeons. It provides excellent views of the Old Town and the bay. Look out for the two lions of St. Mark and the Venetians inscriptions on the bastion walls above.
The Old Perithia, located in the North East corner of the Island, is a deserted village with roots in the 14th century. This picturesque village is a great place to explore. Here can you take a step back in time or just sit and enjoy a drink in one of the nice Tavernas afterwards.
Edem Beach Nightclub
Edem Beach Nightclub opened in 1988 and then served as a beach bar daytime and as a rock club night time. It is a popular hangout for all kind of people and they play a mix of old goodies with the latest on the charts.
Good to know
From central Corfu there are buses to take you to different destinations on the island and they are reasonably reliable. The long distance buses leave from the bus station which is close to the New Port in Corfu Town and the local bus station is on Pleteia San Rocco. The green buses are the long distance ones and the blue buses are local. If you do not like the buses there is always the possibility of hiring a car or a motorcycle to take you around the island’s lovely and attractive beaches.
