To the south of Corfu Town is the beautiful view from Kanoni.
So here’s our list of suggestions in alphabetical order of what’s best about Corfu:
The Achilleion Palace
The Achilleion is an over-the-top palace that was built for the Empress Elizabeth of Austria in the 1890s. Over the years it’s been a hospital, a casino, and starred in a James Bond movie. Today you can tour its rooms and gardens, with their many statues.
Albania Day Trip
Several companies do day trips and overnight visits to Albania. We went with Sipa Tours and had an amazing and fascinating time.

This isn’t one of the biggest archaeological museums in Greece.
Discover the myth that´s hidden behind the history of every Greek island, by having your holidays in Greece combined with breathtaking boat trips.
Church of Ayios Spiridon, Corfu Town
The body of St Spiridon is preserved here in a silver casket to the side of the altar. The 15th-century church is in the heart of the Old Town.
Corfu Old Town
The narrow streets are filled with everything from the kind of souvenir shops you find anywhere to craft workshops, wood carvers, food shops and cafes. It’s easy to get lost in the narrow, winding streets, but it’s worth getting lost and there’ll always be someone to help you find your way out again. High on the list of the best things to do on Corfu.
The view of Mouse Island from Kanoni is one of the most recognisable scenes on the whole island, familiar from many photos. Of course the photos don’t show you that the airport runway is just off to one side – but it’s still a beautiful spot.
Mon Repos and Palaiopolis
Mon Repos is known to English people as the place where the Duke of Edinburgh was born, and after years of wrangling with the former Greek royal family.
