Corfu has a wonderful aquarium that should definitely be on your itinerary when visiting the island. One of the best parts of the aquarium is that you're able to take an underwater cruise through a submarine that has glass where you can look through and see all of Greece's beautiful marine wildlife. It's a great trip for a young couple or anyone with kids looking to explore and learn about Greece's marine life. Here is a link for anyone interested.

I have heard that this aquarium is fantastic and definitely worth a visit. Has anyone here been?
 

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.


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?


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

You must try sofrito when visiting Corfu

Sofrito is one of Greece's best regional dishes! The recipe consists of a sauce made from parsley and spices that are used to marinade veal. The dish is a stew, which is super popular in Greece although most stews are called "kokinista" which are stews with tomato sauce. This stew is one of the few in Greece that is not made from a red sauce which is why you should really try it when you're visiting Corfu!!

What is the weather like in Corfu during the winter?

I am thinking of visiting some friends for New Year's in Corfu this winter, but I have no experience with travelling to Greece outside of the summertime. What is it like in Corfu during December and January? I know that lately there have been a lot of changes to the weather and Greece has seen a lot more snow. What hasn't been like so far this year? And does anyone have any predictions for the rest of the season? I would really appreciate hearing a first hand account, thanks!
