This is one of the best places to visit when in Corfu! I highly recommend visiting this 19th century mansion that shows you history in a super unique way. The museum has animatronic figures inside, so it can be a little creepy lol. I don't recommend taking small children to visit, they might get spooked. The museum is right by the water so its great for a short visit and then a stroll

The animatronic figures sound fun! LOL I bet some kids will like them, I guess it depends on the child. I used to find puppets/animatronics to be a bit creepy, especially the ones that talk.
 

Beautiful Easter ceremonies on the island of Corfu

For Greeks all over the country, Easter is a very special time to be with family and celebrate with your entire community. There are so many special traditions in all of the unique pockets and areas of Greece...these are some traditions that you will see on the island of Corfu. They are so beautiful, and I would love the opportunity to visit the island during the holidays. Are there any other islands that are a must visit during easter?


Are there any hiking trails in Corfu?

Hiking while traveling is something that I am starting to do more and more, especially hiking to catch the sunset and sunrise. If anyone has any good recommendations on where I can go in Corfu to go hiking, I would really appreciate it. I have found that in traveling and hiking, there are many trails that are unmarked and can be a bit dangerous to hike. I personally prefer walking on trails that are marked and have clear pathways so that I don't get lost, especially in a foreign country. Thanks!

How to eat authentic food in Corfu, Greece!

Nothing is better than trying out authentic Greek food in Corfu. The best thing you can do, is make friends with locals and try out some local dishes like sofrito, pastitsada, and savoro. Like many different foods in Greece, Corfu has some of the best and freshest seafood so I highly recommend trying out any seafood dishes!! Let me know if you like this video :)

The Canal DAmour in Corfu is stunning

The Canal D'Amour is located in the Siari neighbhood of Corfu, which is wonderful for eating out at restaurants, watching the sunset, and of course swimming by the beach. The canal is a small inlet of water that is blocked off by two large strips of land on both sides. I have copied links so that you can know exactly what it looks like. The area here is so peaceful when it is not crowded and offers such a serene vibe. I highly recommend that you spend the whole day here and watch the sunset overlook the canal at the end of the night.

Corfus strange yet fun tradition of smashing pots on Holy Saturday

Greeks seem to have an obsession with smashing pots! Opa! In Corfu, there is an old tradition that is near and dear to my hear called Botides. This is when people smash pots filled with water from their windows and balconies on Holy Saturday. In the Greek Orthodox religion, Holy Saturday is when the first resurrection, when Christ brought salvation to the dead. The tradition of Botides is most popular in Corfu, but can also be seen in other parts of Greece.
