The beautifully preserved Old Town of Corfu, is a UNESCO world heritage site, where Renaissance, Baroque and Classical cultures come together and fuse with local artistic traditions. Palaces, fortresses, buildings of the Venetian rule uniquely blend with the Greek architecture, small secluded squares and the so-called ‘Kantoúnia’ the vaulted passages that make you feel as if you’ve travelled to Italy.
The must sees of Corfu are certainly the impressive 15th century Old Fortess, the Cathedral of Saint Spyridon (the patron saint of the Island) as well as the Archaeological and the Dionysios Solomos Museums, the latter dedicated to Dionysios Solomos, the national poet of Greece.
