This is a large grassy open area surrounded by trees with ornamental gardens at one side and the old cricket pitch at the other. People come here to stroll and bring their children here to play. Its a good access route from the town to the coastal road.

This is a several football field wide square that goes from the old town and the Liston to the Old Fortress. It is framed by nice old buildings of private homes, museums, hotel and restaurants on one end and the Ionian see and the fortress on the other. Aside from the Liston on the west side, it is mostly made... More

This huge open space, in between the Palce of St Michael and St George and the Old Fortress, is the place Corfiuts go to see and be seen. Lots of cafes, tabernas and bars, some under umbrellas and some in the old arcaded buildings, it is a great place to go to soak up local social atmosphere. Lots of touristy... More

This is the place where taxis, buses and shuttles drop you off. Convenient to the old fortress and the Palace of St. Michael and George. There is a stand offering horse carriage rides, lots of vendors selling all kinds of touristy things. Its pretty open aired and uncrowded as its huge.

This green patch is in front of the Liston in Corfu so it is in a great setting. Every Sunday in summer, cricket is played here reminiscent of the British influence which can also be seen in the magnificent Corfu castle.

Enjoyed our meal in the relaxing, outdoor setting. The waiters in this restaurant and the restaurant adjoining seem to be having a sort of a competition and seemed be at odds with one another.

We ate a delicious gyros. The pork, tzatziki and the salade was perfectly made, and tasted wonderful. Very good outdoor locations, and free wifi.

You should visit this, sit and watch the world go by,perhaps even see a cricket match, not what you would expect to see in Greece. A charming reminder of Kerkerya being a British protectorate. Go to see a slice of Corfiot life, especially at the Orthodox Easter celebrations.
