Corfu abounds in natural attractions that range from hills to beaches. This beautiful town overlooks the turquoise-blue Ionian Sea and looks ravishing with its pristine beauty set against the backdrop of a quaint town. The town is populated with lovely pedestrians and elegant Italianate architecture that can be credited to its history spent under Venetian-rule (1401 to 1797). The pivotal attractions of Corfu are its fortresses (Old and New) that dominate its city scape. Then, there is the famous Esplanade area that falls between old town and the Old Fortress and is also the second largest square in Europe. It is overlooked by Liston, a square with terraces built by the French in the 19th-century, today home to trendy cafes.

The town also boasts of magnificent churches such as Church of St. Spyridon (Áyios Spyrídon) and The Church of Saints Jason and Sosipater that add to the spiritual attraction. There are neo-classical and bygone era buildings that add an element of elegance and poise to the town such as Mon Repos and The Achilleion. With such array of things to do in Corfu, it is certainly one of the towns in Greece that you can't afford to miss.
