      Points of interest in Corfu

      Like any Greek destination, Corfu is a treasure of cultural heritage. Yet that heritage here is quite unique, as it’s the only location in Greece that never fell to the Ottoman Empire. Instead, you will find remains of French, British and Venetian rule on the island.
      Corfu’s Old Town, in particular, is a good example. The ancient narrow lanes, called katounia, are surrounded by elegant Venetian buildings of the 17th and 18th century. Other important Venetian landmarks are the two forts Palaio Frourio and Neo Frourio.
      The city is also home to the largest square in the Balkans. The Spianada Square is divided in two: the Upper Square or Ano Plateia and the Lower Square or Kato Plateia. The community occasionally organises cricket matches on the Lower Square, the only place in the world outside the British Commonwealth where cricket is played.


      Corfu: A hiker’s paradise

      Corfu is probably the best island in Greece for hiking. While most tourist accommodation is near the coastline, the lush green countryside is surprisingly untouched by mass tourism. A multitude of trails connect villages with mountains, olive groves and beaches. Beginners can make use of the many guided hiking tours while seasoned hikers can tackle the renowned Corfu Trail. This 220 km long trail meanders through the entire island from its southernmost point all the way up to the northernmost tip. The Corfu Trail is the best way to discover the island off the beaten track as you’ll discover many traditional villages, gorgeous mountains and peaceful monasteries.

      A few words of Greek

      • Kalimera is the usual greeting in the morning, if you’re greeting someone in the afternoon or evening, say kalispera. Goodnight is kalinikta, do pay attention though as kalinikta is only used as a goodbye, never as a greeting. Going for drinks with friends? The Greeks don’t say cheers but yamas! Want to go out? Say Pame gia café. It literally means “Let’s go for a coffee” but it’s generally used to go out for drinks, not specifically coffee. If you have a particular Greek lady or gentleman in mind, this is the way to ask them out for a drink.
