About Corfu

The name Corfu (Kèrkyra) names not only the island, but also its capital, which is a beautiful, sophisticated and charming town. It is also one of the most elegant island capitals in the whole of Greece, as it was modernised for the 1994 EU summit.

The architecture in town is influenced by the French, the Italians and the British, but it still has a contemporary Greek feel to it, which makes it an amazing place to visit.

Tips

Good to know

Public Transport

From central Corfu there are buses to take you to different destinations on the island and they are reasonably reliable. The long distance buses leave from the bus station which is close to the New Port in Corfu Town and the local bus station is on Pleteia San Rocco. The green buses are the long distance ones and the blue buses are local. If you do not like the buses there is always the possibility of hiring a car or a motorcycle to take you around the island’s lovely and attractive beaches.
