Corfu is probably the most famous island of the Ionian complex. It is a sophisticate island that attracts thousands of visitors every year. The natural beauty, beautiful beaches and vivid nightlife have made Corfu one of the most sought-after destinations in the Mediterranean. The “beautiful and rich land” of Homer is a paradise of poetic landscapes and culture. Its strategic position made the island vulnerable to foreign conquestors. As a result, a blend of the Venetian, British and French cultures was integrated to the Greek identity. These western influences are prominent in the island’s architecture. The town seems like a fresco painting that has come to life. Liston’s elegant arcades hang over the marble paved square where the locals gather for a cup of coffee or a drink. The old town with its special design and quiet, narrow roads is the biggest preserved medieval town in Greece. Corfu also offers vast options for entertainment, with candlelit restaurants, romantic bars and vibrant nightclubs covering all tastes and styles.
