Voyage to one of Greece's most beautiful & popular islands
The location of Poseidon’s honeymoon and the setting for Shakespeare’s last play, The Tempest, the island of Corfu has been much mythologized over the years, and for good reason. The hauntingly beautiful landscape of silvery olive trees, turquoise blue waters, and gorgeous sandy beaches seems like it was borrowed from the pages of a fairytale.
Be sure to lay down a trail of breadcrumbs for the maze-like cobblestone streets of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Old Town, packed with souvenir shops selling everything from wooden toys to sweet liqueur made from the island’s kumquats. Or meander to the perfect people-watching area of Liston, which was built to resemble the rue de Rivoli in Paris and features cafés serving strong coffee and other reviving treats.
Venture into the Corfu countryside to explore villages like the foodie’s paradise of Agni, hard-partying Kavos, and genteel “Kensington-on-Sea”—an affectionate nickname in reference to the wealthy West London tourists who holiday there every year. Tally ho and cheerio!Download An Explorer Guide +
