Corfu (Kérkira in Greek) is without doubt one of the most beautiful islands anywhere, with its wonderful Mediterranean climate, many fine beaches and stunning architecture. Its lush interior of wild flowers and cypress groves offers quiet relief from the lively resorts in the high season summer months.

The capital and main port of Corfu is a town with unique charm and character. The largest town in the Ionian Islands, it is also one of the most elegant and impressive towns in Greece. The architecture here was influenced by all the civilisations that once occupied the island, such as the Venetians, French and English.

If you are in a rush, most of the island can be visited by car in a day. The roads are generally of excellent quality. Most of the important sights are easily accessible by car, and every corner of the island harbours an attraction.

Located off the northern coast of Greece and to the southeast of the Italian boot, Corfu is the northernmost of the Ionian Islands and is a floral delight with its abundance of vegetation. The landscape is varied, ranging from a rocky, mountainous interior cut with deep valleys, to the sandy beaches of the south, west and north.

Christianity came to the island early on and Corfu came under the web of the Byzantine Empire which lasted well into the 13th century. The Venetians then ruled the island until Napoleon claimed Corfu for France after crushing Venice. The island fell once again to the English, who improved society considerably. In the late 19th century, Corfu became part of Greece.

Getting to the island is simple enough: you can either fly or take a ferry to Corfu town. The airport is well located and receives flights from Athens and most European countries. Frequent ferries arrive from all over Greece and neighbouring Italy, including the port of Venice.
