Corfu is a great spot for a honeymoon for those looking to stay in a single destination or for those who want to island hop! You can go to Lefkada and Kefalonia since they are pretty close, I suggest going by boat although you can also choose to fly if you prefer. If you want to go somewhere romantic, I suggest the old town and Arillas beach. There are really great hotels on the South Eastern part of the island by the coastline.

Corfu is beautiful and fairly self contained. I can see why this would make a great honeymoon destination by itself! I find that I love finding a great spot in Greece and then staying put, it really allows me to get to know an area.
 

Check out Casa Parlente in Corfu

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

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.


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!

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?
