Corfu: City Breaks
The Greek Island Kerkyra
If it’s a cultural city break in the sun you’re after, Corfu is the perfect destination. Corfu’s capital, Corfu Town, is an architecturally stunning town with a great deal of interesting history behind it. It seems that over the years, Corfu was occupied by almost everyone – the British, Romans, the French, the Italians, the Goths and more! Throw in a little Greek mythology and you realise Corfu Town is oozing with a mishmash of culture and ancient civilisations. You’ll find the Italian influence in the elegant Venetian architecture, and the British influence in the cricket you’ll see played on the famous Esplanade green in the centre of the town. A city break in this lovely town will have you weaving your way through twisting narrow streets which break open into colourful squares and courtyards. Take your time to browse the many market stalls and enjoy some of the best cuisine in Greece in Corfu Town’s many traditional tavernas. There are a variety of hotels to stay in during your city break to suit a range of budgets. Either choose your accommodation on the outskirts of the town where you can expect to experience the panoramic views of the Ionian Sea, or get yourself a pretty hotel room in the centre of Corfu Town and enjoy the buzz and vibrancy of this culturally rich Ionian city.
