Corfu lies off the west coast of Greece. This beautiful island inspired the Austrian Empress Sisi to have her own palace, Achilleion, built there. Corfu is a very green island and home to incredible scenic contrasts. While the north is extremely mountainous, the south is flat and dotted with countless olive trees and the west boasts a spectacular steep coast.
Corfu Town, the island’s capital, is located on the east coast of the island and is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Greece. Strolling through the lively old town streets of Corfu town, characterized by the centuries of Venetian rule, engenders a delightful holiday feeling. Here you will find countless small shops offering a colorful jumble of various goods.
The Old and New Fortresses are particularly impressive, making them a popular photo motif. The same can be said for the monastery island of Vlacherna, connected to the mainland by a causeway, and the neighboring Pontikonissi, Mouse Island.
