The island of Corfu is located in the Ionian Sea on the west coast of Greece and has a surface area of 614,6 square kilometres, which makes it the second largest of the Ionian Islands.
UNESCO has declared the island’s historic centre a world heritage site. Stately buildings with neoclassical influence, like the Palace of St Michael and St Georgiou, the Liston Arcade, the Reading Society, the Catholic cathedral, the Maitland rotunda, the Ionian Parliament, and the Kapodis-trias family mansion, amaze its visitors.
Its rich multi-cultural heritage, its historic monuments, its stunning natural landscape, its crystal clear seas, and its excellent weather all year round explain why Corfu is one of the most cosmopolitan Mediterranean destinations, weaving a powerful spell on its visitors. The list of beaches is endless. You can find isolated picturesque coves or large, popular beaches with bars, taverns, shops and watersport activities.
