It is one of the most beautiful towns of the Greek islands and the largest of the Ionian Islands. Corfu’s strategic position in the Mediterranean Sea attracted conquerors throughout the centuries which is obvious when walking around Corfu Old Town with its architecture, quaint narrow roads and charming scenery. Corfu Town was built between two fortresses and is adorned with the architectural influences of Venetian and French conquerors. The most romantic and beautiful square of Greece with its arcaded terraces and cafes – Liston - can be found there. It was designed and built by the French architect, Mathieu de Lesseps, who was inspired by the Rue de Rivoli in Paris. Liston derives from the Venetian dialect which means ‘wide and straight paved road’.
Corfu has undoubtedly a cosmopolitan feeling combined with a special traditional character.
It has a mild Mediterranean climate throughout the year without being bitterly cold in winter and the summers are humid. Heavy rainfall and high humidity encourage the abundant growth of vegetation. Therefore the island has a lot of greenery all year round and is listed as the number one greenest island of Greece. Corfu’s highest mountain is Mount Pantokrator which is in the northern centre with an altitude of 914m. The beautiful landscape of Corfu goes on with two lakes, two rivers and an impressive waterfall outside the village of Nymfes near Mount Pantokrator. On the north side of Corfu there are three small islands untouched by tourism and ideal for total privacy: Othoni, Mathraki and Ereikoussa. They can be reached by boat from Agios Stefanos or Sidari and are perfect for a daily excursion. According to the latest census figures, the population of the island is 105.000 of which 35.000 people live in the town. The economy of Corfu depends mainly on the tourist industry and agricultural production is not very large. The core products are olive oil, wine, vegetables and the unique type of Kumquat fruit.
