Holidays to Corfu Town, Corfu

Overview

Corfu Town is the capital of the island and one of the island’s most beautiful and interesting towns. Filled with cultural and historical sights, a holiday in Corfu Town is ideal if you want to learn more about the island’s history and love having plenty of activities to fill your days with. However it’s not all sightseeing and museums; Corfu Town also has several great beaches on which to relax in the sun.

Things to Do

The Liston building is well-known as a place to people-watch; splash out in one of the upscale cafes or sit on the grass in the town’s main square, the Esplanade, for free! On the outskirts of the town you can find two lovely beaches, Mon Repos and Faliraki. Glass-bottom boat tours of the coast are available from the town harbour, and kids will love Aqualand waterpark just 15 minutes’ drive away.

Culture

Don’t miss the Old and New Fortresses, both offering a fascinating glimpse into Corfu’s history, and beautiful views over the sea. The Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage site, where you can visit the Liston Building, the Palace of St Michael & George, and the Town Hall. The red-domed Church of St Spyridon is named after Corfu’s patron saint and houses his remains, while the Archaeological Museum has fascinating artefacts from the island’s past.

Food and Drink

Corfu Town’s beachfront is the place to go for authentic Greek cuisine, where local tavernas serve up lamb kleftiko and fresh seafood dishes. Corfu Town has Venetian roots so it’s no surprise that there are also a lot of Italian restaurants, particularly in the Old Town. Corfu Town has a great nightlife, more low-key than Kavos but with everything from quiet bars to all-night clubs to choose from.
