Interesting Places nearby
The road Gilford that all nice restaurants are placed is 3min distance by foot and also all the night bars of Corfu Town are from 3-5 min walk.
Liston road (3-5min walk): Corfu Town owes the elegant, photogenic Liston, the arcade that lines the northern half of the Spianada, to neither the Venetians nor the British, but to the French. Designed during the brief Napoleonic occupation of Corfu (1807–14), its harmonious four-storey houses were modelled on Paris’ then-new rue de Rivoli. A procession of grand, see-and-be-seen cafes and bars sprawls under the arcade, open to both the Spianada and to Kapadistriou around the back.
Spianada Central Square / Park of Corfu (3-5min walk): The Spianada, the broad park adjoining the Old Town, was cleared by the Venetians to allow a clear line of fire from the Old Fort. On the lawns of its northern portion, the British laid out a cricket pitch during the 19th century, which still hosts occasional matches today.
Paved avenues lead across its more formal southern half to a bandstand and other monuments. Horse-drawn carriages tout for passengers along the central road, also a base for buses and taxis.
“Palaio Frourio” Old Fortress of Corfu Town (5-7min walk): The rocky headland that juts east from Corfu Town is topped by the Venetian-built 14th-century Palaio Frourio. Before that, already enclosed within massive stone walls, it cradled the entire Byzantine city. A solitary bridge crosses its seawater moat.
Only parts of this huge site, which also holds later structures from the British era, are accessible to visitors; wander up to the lighthouse on the larger of the two hills for superb views, or down to reach small gravelly beaches.
Asian Art Corfu Museum (5-7min walk): Home to stunning artefacts ranging from prehistoric bronzes to works in onyx and ivory, this excellent museum occupies the central portions of the Palace of St Michael & St George. One gallery provides a chronological overview of Chinese ceramics, while showcasing remarkable jade carvings and snuff bottles. The India section opens with Alexander the Great, ‘When Greece Met India’, and displays fascinating Graeco-Buddhist figures, including a blue-grey schist Buddha. A new Japanese section incorporates magnificent samurai armour, Noh masks and superb woodblock prints.
Casa Parlante – Corfu Living History House (3-5min walk): is a town house that has been remodelled to illustrate the daily lives of a fictitious merchant family from the mid-19th century. Enthusiastic tour guides make the whole experience fun and informative, while in each room waxworks make small, endlessly repeated movements. It’s hard to know who to feel sorriest for: the housemaid, forever dusting; the kids, doomed to an eternal music lesson; or the countess, raising a cup of congealed tea that never quite reaches her lips.
Church of Saint Spyridon (5-7min walk): Pilgrims and day trippers alike throng this Old Town landmark. As well as magnificent frescoes, the small 16th-century basilica holds the remains of Corfu’s patron saint, Spyridon, a 4th-century Cypriot shepherd. His body, brought here from Constantinople in 1453, lies in an elaborate silver casket, and is paraded through the town on festival days.
Mon Repos Estate (30min walk): This park-like wooded estate 2km around the bay south of the Old Town was the site of Corfu’s most important ancient settlement, Palaeopolis. More recently, in 1921, the secluded neoclassical villa that now holds the Museum of Palaeopolis was the birthplace of Prince Philip of Greece, who was to marry Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II. Footpaths lead through the woods to ancient ruins, including sanctuaries to Hera and Apollo, and a more complete Doric temple atop a small coastal cliff. It takes half an hour to walk to Mon Repos from town, or you can catch bus 2a from the Spianada. Bring a picnic and plenty of water; there are no shops nearby.
