I am thinking of moving my family to Corfu for when I retire. It's one of the possibilities, anyway. I thought it would be a good idea to visit next year, though, before I commit to anything. I really want to get a new overview of the island and its culture. Do you guys have any suggestions about what I should see and do?
 
These are the must-see landmarks:
1. Church of St. Spyridon, Patron of the island with his incorruptible body
2. Museum of Asian Art (unique!)
3. Museum of Antivouniotissa (excellent post-Byzantine artworks!) https://www.antivouniotissamuseum.gr/en
4. The Old Fortress
5. The Orthodox Metropolitan Church of Panagia Spilaiotissa, St. Blaise and St. Theodora, the Byzantine Empress who restored the veneration of the holy icons in 843 and whose incorruptible body is kept in the interior
6. The Roman Catholic Duomo
7. The Archaeological Museum
8. The Achillion Palace

This is an excellent list! Thank you for posting it. I might also be visiting Corfu soon so this list will come in handy. I love visiting Archaeological Museums in Greece. They each have their own qualities and are great places to learn. I like to stop in when I find them. :)

Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions! I can't wait to visit some of these places.
 

Where should I visit in Corfu?

I am thinking of moving my family to Corfu for when I retire. It's one of the possibilities, anyway. I thought it would be a good idea to visit next year, though, before I commit to anything. I really want to get a new overview of the island and its culture. Do you guys have any suggestions about what I should see and do?

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!

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!!

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.
