Places to Visit

The Old Fort (Paleo Frourio)

Dating way back to the 8th Century the 'Old Fort' as it's commonly known has protected Corfu Town throughout a number of historically significant conflicts. Originally a Byzantine castle, it was rebuilt by the Venetians in its first phase (1400-1500)– the original Byzantine walls were strengthened and the canal opened (Contra-Fossa), which also created the artificial island accessed by a movable bridge.

The Liston

Situated in the western side of the Esplanade Square, the Liston is fine building which terrace houses some of the finest and more luxurious cafes and restaurants of the island.
