Luxury Corfu Town Holidays

Venetian style and English cricket

Corfu Town

Corfu Town is an effortlessly elegant town showcasing a mix of influences. Laid out by the Venetians and infused with Italian, Greek, French and British touches, expect to see cricket matches on the esplanade flanked by grand Gallic buildings. The city’s arcaded buildings were modelled on Paris' Rue de Rivoli, and an afternoon stroll reveals the chic cafés and high-end restaurants.

Step into the maze of narrow streets that makes up the UNESCO-approved old town, however, and things take a turn for the Venetian. Here you'll find shuttered pastel mansions, Byzantine churches and a couple of fantastic museums. The city is set between two towering Venetian fortresses, with the calm waters of Corfu’s beaches an easy couple of kilometres away.
