Old Fortress Corfu , Corfu Reviews

  • Interesting site to visit, only €6 entry fee (2018). Not all areas are accessible to those with limited mobility. Great for kids as you can scramble about a bit. Be warned, there's not much shade and the climb to see the views from the lighthouse is pretty steep & uneven. Fantastic restaurant in the grounds with great local cuisine and great views over the bay to Mon Repos. Toilets available too.

  • Must visit place in Corfu apart from it's secluded beaches. This old fort should be visited in a sunny day next to old fort is beautiful Ionian sea and you swim as well.It had entry fee of 6 euros for adults and for students 3 euros. Inside the fort is st. George's church

  • Beautiful fortress, visit it in a sunny day. The walk to the top is amazing, full of history, with views from all around the place. The Old Fortress of Corfu is a Venetian fortress in the city of Corfu. The fortress covers the promontory which initially contained the old town of Corfu that had emerged during Byzantine times.

  • It's Okay... The view on top of the fort in the middle is nice, as well as the walk up to it. Unfortunately you can't actually reach the fort in the back. But coman Greek (or local Corfu) government, show some respect for your heritage. There is too much traffic inside the monument itself. I get it, that it needs to be supplied and people work there, but cars parked all over the place as well as trucks driving up and and down the ancient paths just hurts to see. What also hurts to see is that you allow (Or at least not discourage) people from climbing all over the monument. And than there is graffiti and carvings everywhere. The little museums near the beginning are a bit bare as well, as is other information signs, etc... Still worth a visit, though. The entrance price is not that steep. I just hope they will start treating the fort a bit better in the future

  • Really good views into the sea, you could see mainland Greece and Albania from there. You can find parking in a large parking lot infront of the fort. Entrance is free after 3.30, but some of the gates are closed, so you cannot explore the whole fort.
