Corfu is the easternmost part of Greece. It is located in the Northern Ionian Sea, 2.5 km north from the Albanian coast. It is the second biggest and most popular Ionian Island, with a surface of 592 squared kilometres and a population of 97.000 inhabitants. It is an island rich in nature and culture, as we can find the heritage of all the civilizations that inhabited it. Corfu surprises and fascinates tourists with its two forts, narrow streets, tall houses and arches, its town hall of Venetian Architecture, the church of Agios Spiridonas, patron of the island, its blooming gardens and its cute balconies.
In Corfu tourists can relax and have fun thanks to its intense night life. Among the most important places to visit there are both the old and new town, the latter characterized by large streets, houses of English and French inspiration, the Venetian building of the Accademia Ionica, the Spianada, the Old Fort and the New Fort. Close to the city there’s Kanoni and Il Pontikonissi, the island with the little byzantine church.
