Corfu Travel Guide

by our Greece expert Paul Baderman
 
Paul BadermanThe Ionian isle of Corfu was one of the first Greek islands to tap into tourism. As a result, you may have to travel further to find unspoilt stretches of beach. Mountainous and green inland, rocky and spectacular to the north and west, Corfu nevertheless has more than its fair share of beauty spots. This was where Odysseus found shelter in Homer’s epic tale. Where Empress Elizabeth of Austria built a folly in honour of Achilles. You’ll find old fashioned harbours festooned with fishing boats and dotted with tavernas, idyllic villages like Palaiokastritsa (easier to enjoy than to pronounce) soaking up magical sunsets, and places open until dawn where you can dance the sand out of your hair.
