Corfu Town is a very elegant and charming capital. Recently added to UNESCO's World Heritage List, the old town, with its Venetian forts and neo-classical housing was inscribed as a fortified Mediterranean port town of high integrity and authenticity. Its cosmopolitan atmosphere and fabulous architecture are a big attraction to visitors. The Venetian influence is very strong in Corfu Town, but very much in evidence are French and English styles. The elegant terrace of buildings with arches along the front is known as the Liston and was built by the French in the style of the Parisian rue de Rivoli.
St. Spiridon - The Patron Saint:
The Patron Saint of Corfu is St.Spiridon. Spiridon was brought up as a shepherd on Cyprus. He first became a monk, then a bishop and many minor miracles had been credited to him before his death in 350 AD. When it was discovered that his remains had not decayed he was taken to Constantinople but was later smuggled out, along with the remains of St. Theodora, before the Turkish occupation of 1453. Unceremoniously strapped to a donkey the remains arrived in Corfu in 1456.
This church is undoubtedly the most famous of all the island's churches and houses the relics of this saint who is credited with saving the islanders from famine, various plagues, invasions and other disasters. On special days of the calendar the mummified remains of St Spyridon are paraded around the town with much pomp and ceremony. The actual casket containing his remains is exposed annually on St.Spyridon's Day, which falls on the 12th December, at Easter and on 11th August. In the church the casket is situated to the right of the altar, in a small chapel of its own.
The Liston and the Esplanade:
The Esplanade is a charming area of Corfu Town, an urban open space for relaxed promenading, reading or gossiping over Greek coffee. At the northern section of the Esplanade is the terrace of arcaded buildings known as the Liston, which was built by the French in the style of the Parisian rue de Rivoli. This is a very smart area of the Esplanade and looks out over the wide green space which is used for cricket matches, a legacy of the British. At this end you will also find the impressive Palace of St. Michael and St. George, which houses a collection of Oriental Art, and is a most striking relic of the 50 year presence by the British on Corfu.
Here is a perfect spot to relax and have a drink and to watch the world go by from many stylish cafes and restaurants. At the southern end of the Esplanade you will find a garden area which is landscaped with flowerbeds and a fountain and also an elegant bandstand where you may be lucky enough to find one of the town's brass bands performing on a Sunday afternoon.
For people who prefer sightseeing to shopping there are many museums to visit around the town. Amongst others are the Museum of Asiatic Art, at the Palace of St. Michael and St. George and the Municipal Art Gallery. Visit the Paper Money museum in St. Spiridon Square to see an extensive display of Greek banknotes and of course St. Spiridon church itself, the most famous of all the churches in Corfu and well worth a visit. As in all churches in Corfu and the rest of Greece it is important to be dressed appropriately on entering. The Byzantine Museum houses a beautiful collection of icons and paintings from the 16th to 18th centuries.
The Old Town:
Otherwise known as “Campiello,” this area is the fascinating maze of narrow streets, alleyways and steps that are squeezed into the north-eastern part of the town. You will need a map to show you exactly which area it is in. Situated between the Old Fort and the Old Port, it is like a miniature Venice with much of its appeal being the residential atmosphere. In centuries gone by this area was surrounded by city walls, long since torn down, but the only way to expand the living quarters was to go upwards. Therefore it is full of high buildings and you can often see laundry strung across the alleyways.
LOCAL ACTIVITIES in and around include a visit to Aqualand, Horse Riding and Golfing in the Ropa Valley. Visits to Pantokrator (the highest mountain), Achilleon Palace, Palaeokastritisa, and water orientated sports of Fishing, Snorkeling and Sailing.
WALKING In and around Ropa Valley is both peaceful and rewarding, there are plenty of beautiful walks both along the nearby villages and hillside countryside.

"Had never expect such a great time"
Wow! i cant wait to come back!
I was staying with my family last summer but even now while i am writing, the experience were so clear in my mind! Usually you don't expect much to go on a trip with your family but this trip to this Corfu Getaway studios complex was just pure class. we had great time enjoying the quiet but full of excitement place, laying back in the pool and drinking and talking by the pool, endless barbecue nights with good food easily bought. The view of the surroundings and the sunset was so spectacular! This was a place which allowed our family to really united together and shared our time and talked like we haven't been this close before. And our relationship were much better after this tip.
I am planning to go back with my girlfriend and a couple of other friends, probably explore this beautiful island a bit more, and more party by the pool. OMG, i cant wait!!!!
