Corfu Town is the main town on the island of Corfu and it's a lovely capital with bundles of atmosphere, great architecture and a wonderful history. Subjects to to Corfu Town combine sightseeing, culture, sun and fun - exactly what Greek holidays are meant to do.
Located on the east coast of the island, holidays in Corfu Town provide a huge selection of great shops, lovely open air bars, pavement cafes and marvellous tavernas, yet visitors stlll have access to a lovely promenade with a small shingle beach. A few other resorts like Komeno and Kanoni within easy access offer better bathing opportunities.
The famous Church of St Spiridon, dedicated to the patron saint of the island, is situated in the centre of Corfu Town and sits quite happily on a narrow, cobbled street where hordes of tourists wander by and the local Orthodox Priests carry on with their daily lives in a decidedly bemused fashion.
A holiday in Greece would never be complete without enjoying a cool drink whilst watching the world go by and holidays in Corfu Town will not disappoint. The beautiful Liston area with its stunning columns and graceful architecture now houses excellent cafes where you can even watch a game of cricket on the green!
