The Arcadian Hotel is located smack bang in amongst all the action of Spianada Square – its views across Liston Square and of the Old Fortress make you want to sit at your balcony all day long and absorb them.
Corfu Town is absolutely packed with affordable and enticing places to eat.
Our pick for lunch would be Gondola, a brilliant restaurant located on the famous Liston Square and perfect for vegetarians. Try their green bean casserole and stuffed peppers.
For lunch, try Veranda Taverna, located a short walk from the Old Fortress. Stunning sea views while you dine? Yes please!
For night time, you’ll find locals dining at Marina’s Tavern in the Jewish Quarter where you can sample the finest Corfiot food in a beautiful traditional taverna tucked down an alleyway off the busy tourist streets.
Go mezze style and sample a few of their delicious starters; pitta with tzatziki, fried saganaki cheese, Greek salad, fried squid.
Their prices are also pretty reasonable.
Head on a stroll to the old windmill at Garitsa Bay where you’ll be treated to great views, delicious ice-cream sundaes at the café next to it and you can enjoy a spot of people-watching as the locals tend to cool down with a swim in the sea at the windmill.
All washed down with a local retsina wine or cocktail, of course!
Grab your comfy shoes, some sun cream and spend your time exploring the historic sights located around Corfu Town.
First on your list should be the Old Fortress, which dates back to the Byzantine period.
Once you cross the walkway leading from Corfu Town into the fortress, you will feel yourself stepping back in time while you explore this masterpiece of military architecture.
It also happens to have spectacular views overlooking Corfu Town itself and the sea: a real wow factor.
