Welcome to a fairy tale full of myths and stories from the past that pop up on every street corner and in every alley. Venetian, French and British influences together coexist on the island of Corfu, especially in the Old Town.
The Old Town of Corfu is certainly one of the most beautiful, if not the most beautiful, of the Greek islands. It is no coincidence that it has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Colourful washing lines, mansions, impressive arches, labyrinthian streets and picturesque balconies create a magical image.
Your first stop will be Liston, more specifically, the Esplanade, the biggest square in the country. Your steps will instantly lead you to the road of Agios Spyridonas -protector of the island- behind Liston. All roads lead from here! You have already seen the heart of the town.
Directly behind and parallel to Liston is the famous Kapodistriou Street, perpendicular to the commercial and favourite Nikiforou Theotoki Street. It is a wide and impressive pedestrian street, home to the ''House of the Corfu Philharmonic'', expensive jewellery shops, all time classic cafes and restaurants.
