Sun and Sightseeing in Corfu Town

Sun and Sightseeing in Corfu Town, Corfu, Greece (B)

Corfu Town, known as Kerkyra in Greek, is the adorable and very walkable capital of the island of Corfu. While it doesn’t have the kind of historical cache of Athens, there are still some beautiful sights to see in town. Just as relaxed as other parts of the island, perhaps the best thing to do is idle around the shops and indulge in long relaxing dinners. But in case you need some pointers, here are some things to do and sightseeing ideas in Corfu Town.

The Old Fortress of Corfu juts out on a peninsula to the east of city center. Originally constructed by the Venetians in the 15th century to protect the city from invaders and pirates, it stands as one of the most impressive monuments on Corfu. The fortress is surrounded by a small moat that you must cross over to get inside the fortification. Tickets are €6, and the site is also included in the €15 city ticket that includes other sights in town such as the Antivouniotissa Byzantine Museum, the Archaeological Museum of Corfu, and the Museum of Asian Art. However, if you enter after closing time, you can still wander the grounds for free or access the restaurant at the Corfu Sailing Club. It is a spectacular place to catch the sunset. ......
