Corfu is an island in the Ionian Sea, defined by the mountainous landscape and beautiful shoreline resorts. This island spent years under Venetian, British and French rule, which is evident in its cultural heritage. Corfu Town is the capital and a real cosmopolitan jewel with exciting places to visit.
Best places to visit in Corfu
The magnificent Old Fortress (Citadel) has an imposing view, especially from the highest point marked by a lighthouse. The Esplanade is the central gathering place in Corfu Town, and it's a vast green space with cafes where you can relax. The church of the patron St. Spyridon is a place where you can find peace and tranquillity, while the Church of Saints Jason and Sosipater is a real example of Byzantine architecture.

The bus is the only public transport option in Corfu. There are two types of buses which are easily recognised by their colour. The green buses run from Corfu Town to Kassiopi, Kavos, Agios Stefanos and other towns and villages on the island, while the blue ones are used to reach different parts of Corfu Town.
The taxi service in Corfu is an easy way to get around the island. Corfu taxis are available 24 hours a day, and you can call a local taxi or take one from the stands. The taxi fare is usually fixed, and you should negotiate it before you enter the cab.
Corfu is a beautiful island, and you should visit as many places as you can during your visit. The best way to navigate the island on your schedule is to rent a car in Corfu. This way, you will have the flexibility to go wherever you like without being tied to a timetable.
