SPIANADA PARK AREA borders the famous LISTON and OLD FORT. Bus 2 rus for 1,50 to MON REPOS and KANONI The green area is clean and well kept although some buildings could do with some maintenance. Nearby is spacious ALEXANDRAS AVENUE with its old villas. The avenue end at busy and commercial SAN ROCCO SQUARE were the blue bus station... More

Competition for diners is fierce close to Liston So you would think extra effort would be made. Frustratingly we visited this restruant 4 times and were greeted with enthusiasm each visit but failed to get any Greek or Corfuit food although it was advertised on a chalk board and in the menu. The food we ate both pizza and pasta... More

Nice for a relaxing walk round and sit on a bench for a rest, shade from the sun during the day, kept clean and tidy most of the time.

In this part of town, there are many options within 2 minutes walk, but we were certainly not disappointed we chose Spianada. The menu is varied and reasonably priced, the hardest thing was knowing what to choose! I had Spaghetti Bolognese which was tasty and a very healthy portion. My companions had Greek salads and some meze dishes, and we... More

Not so much an 'attraction' as a few key streets and grassy area. A core part of Corfu town, lovely to visit and differentiates it from other Greek towns.

This is a grassy park in the middle of Corfu town. Nice for a break - could have a picnic or play some football. Lined with outdoor cafes along one side. There is some parking (although we recommend parking at the old port). When we were there a concert was going on at one end of the park.

A relaxing place to take a walk, and at any time of year there will always be people relaxing there. much of it is shaded by trees, and if you are lucky there will be one of the local orchestras playing at the band stand. You may even see a cricket match taking place, but this is a rare tradition... More

Either if you try to park your car or you walk in liston or even go to the old fortress spianada square is there. Loads of kids playing around, sometimes free live concerts by local bands as well as cricket games. Big place some cemented some with grass and a part of it converted to a car park.
