Corfu, The “Emerald” Island of the Ionian Sea
The lush green surroundings and deep blue-turquoise waters have granted the island the “Emerald” signature. Surrounded by lush green mountainsides, olive groves and Cypress trees, Corfu is undoubtedly an island of great natural wealth with many Natura protected regions such as Lake Korission, Antinioti Lagoon and the Halikiopoulou Lagoon, home to many species of birds and fish in the wetland area of Kanoni as well as the Lefkimmi Salterns. Besides its natural wealth, Corfu is also an island of multi-cultural heritage, strongly influenced by the Venetians, the French and the English as reflected in its unique architecture and gastronomy. It is an island, bursting with history and culture, with myths and legends waiting to be unfold.

Exploring Corfu’s Old Town
The strategic position of the old town of Corfu, at the entrance of the Adriatic sea and the crossroads between north, south, east and west, have turned the town into “the apple of discord” for anyone interested passing through the Balkans. Its vantage point made the city a target of pirate raids and enemy invasions and thus designed a unique system of fortification, Fortezza Vecchia and Nova Fortezza, the Old and New fortresses of Corfu town that became an example of fortification engineering. The imposing fortresses of Corfu are the perfect place to begin your day exploring the fascinating Old town of Corfu, listed as a cultural UNESCO World Heritage Site. Continue with a stroll around Spiniada square, a visit to the church of St. Spyridon, patron saint of Corfu and lose yourself through the town’s paved, narrow alleys also known as “kantounia” while gazing at the gorgeous mansions and charming Venetian houses, slowly unfolding before your eyes. The lively streets in Corfu’s Old Town are filled with shops, restaurants, cafes and bars, with the sweet scents of “koum-kouat”, “mandoles” and “mandolata”, the colorful houses and the sounds from “serenades” that will take you back in time.
