Is it windier and colder at night in Corfu? And what is the weather like these days...I know that climate change is making the weather wonky all over the world.
 
From what I understand it's cooler than say, the island of Crete, but it's still warm this time of year. Perfect beach weather!

The islands are always a bit cooler than the mainland I think, i'm not sure about the weather in relation to Crete though
 
Crete is further south, so it can get pretty hot. I find the temperature on Corfu to be perfect!

Also the higher elevation you are on a specific island can make things a bit hotter!! Crete is definitely too hot for me sometimes

For sure, it depends the time of year.
 

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!

  • Secluded beaches

Visiting Corfu off the Beaten Track?

I'm currently planning my itinerary for a trip to the beautiful island of Corfu, and while I've got all the major sights on my list, I'm particularly interested in those special "off the beaten path" spots that only the locals know about or seasoned travelers have stumbled upon.
