Corfu Old Town

The Byzantines, Venetians, French, British and Russians all ruled over Corfu, giving this stellar island in the Ionian Sea a unique history that can be felt everywhere in the Old Town which has, in its entirety, been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

You can see it in the architecture of the buildings located between the Old and New Venetian Fortresses and feel it as you explore the pedestrianised little roads called cantounia, as they wind their way through the town and lead to churches, palaces, art galleries and squares. And you can hear it in the music from the philharmonic bands for which Corfu is famous for.

In the Old town, one will find, apart from countless cafes, restaurants and tavernas, a lot of attractions and museums, such as the The Asian Art Museum, the Serbian Museum, the Solomos Museum, the Byzantine Museum of Antivouniotissa, the National Gallery of Corfu, Casa Parlante Museum and in the outskirts of the town, the recently renovated Archaeological Museum of Corfu is located.
