I am researching the possibility of traveling to Corfu this year. What are some villages we must see? I have a list of six or so that I find intriguing - anything to add or subtract?
  1. Pelekas
  2. Liapades
  3. Lakones
  4. Agios Mattheos
  5. Agios Gordios
  6. Sokraki
What do you think? I am having a hard time visualizing things.
I have never been to Corfu but I did some research. Of those, that one that personally intrigues me the most is Pelekas, simply because it seems like a nice, traditional village to explore. There's also a beach here that looks beautiful. Seems like a good place for a home base to me.

Unesco World Heritage Sites of Corfu

I'm currently planning a trip to the beautiful island of Corfu and I'm keen on visiting some of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites that are located there. Being a bit of a history buff, I believe that exploring these sites can give me a deeper understanding of the island's cultural heritage and historical significance.

Could anyone here share more information about the UNESCO site on Corfu? Is there only one? The Corfu Old Town? What should I prioritize to see in Old Town?


Video Tour of Corfu

When I am about to visit a destination, I like to watch video content.

It has been a while since I have been to Corfu. I kept trying to go, but it keeps falling through.

Ignore the several-minutes long plug for a product! That part I know was necessary because they were a sponsor.

Once you get through that the content is good!

Spend the day at Corfu Old Town?

Can you spend an entire day just exploring Corfu Old Town? I'm planning my itinerary for a trip to the gorgeous island of Corfu, and from what I've seen, the Old Town looks like a mosaic of historical and cultural influences with Venetian, French, and British vibes.

Has anyone here spent a day (or more) solely in the old part of the city? How was your experience? Are there enough sights, cafes, shops, and hidden gems to keep one entertained for the full day? I'm looking to soak up as much of the local atmosphere as possible without rushing through.

I am curious what you guys think and any advice you may have. Thanks!

Corfu for Snorkeling?

I'm considering a trip to Corfu and am curious about the snorkeling opportunities there. Is Corfu a good place for snorkeling? Are there specific beaches or spots that are particularly great for underwater exploration? Any recommendations for guided snorkeling tours or places to rent equipment?

I’m looking for clear waters, abundant marine life, and beautiful underwater scenery. Additionally, any tips on the best times of year for snorkeling in Corfu would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Island day trips from Corfu?

I'm currently planning a trip to Corfu and am eager to explore as much as I can in the surrounding areas. I am planning to stay put for the whole time I am in Greece, but I want to do a bit more besides visiting Corfu itself.

I'm particularly interested in:
  • Islands that are easily accessible from Corfu.
  • Recommendations for how to get there (ferry schedules, private boat hires, etc.).
  • Must-see sights or activities on these islands.
Also, if there are any local delicacies or specialties on these islands that I shouldn't miss, I'd love to hear about those too!
