Corfu

Warmed by the rays of the Mediterranean sun and the gentle Ionian Sea, this island on Greece’s west coast boasts two names at once – the Greek Kerkyra and the Italian Corfu. The first derives from the mythical Kerkyra, Poseidon’s beloved, and the second from the Byzantine “Corifo”, meaning “city of the mountains.” The entire island is covered in orange gardens, vineyards and olive groves, and its shoreline is dotted with cozy little towns and soft beaches.
Kerkyra,the capital of Corfu, is located in Cape Sideros. The city’s historic center has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to its stunning fusion of architectural styles from Ancient Rome to modern-day Great Britain. The Venetians made the greatest contribution to Kerkyra’s aesthetic, ruling here for more than 400 years. Today, Kerkyra overflows with fabulous landmarks: the forts of Paleo-Frurio and Neo-Frurio, the neoclassical St. George Cathedral, the Palace of St. Michael and St. George, and various museums, galleries, and churches located both in Kerkyra itself, and beyond.
