A few years ago, we spent a day in Corfu Greece — or Kerkyra, as the Greeks like to call it — while on a Mediterranean cruise. With a charming and picturesque town, sandy beaches, and a backdrop of mountains and sparkling, cerulean waters, Corfu has long been one of the most popular tourist destinations in Greece. Castles and monasteries are everywhere, and every panoramic drive is full of awe-inspiring views. The end result is that the culture of Kerkyra is a unique blend. If guided shore excursions are on your agenda, try to return early enough to explore the quaint, ancient and colorful Corfu Old Town.

Corfu Old Town is a magical place, with a character unlike anywhere else in Greece. The narrow paved streets are devoid of any cars, and the old townhouses are several stories high, providing plenty of shade for the crowds of people who wander through the warren and into open squares. The shuttered windows, peeling pastel walls and downright marvellous stone archways all combine to create a strong sense of faded Venetian elegance.
