A beautiful, central place, lots of restaurants in the area and it's very scenic and lively. Worth a visit. It's not easy to find a parking spot there at certain times (especially in the morning hours).

Probably the single most impressive building and in a lovely setting so certainly worth taking a look if you are at this end of town. Will only take a few minutes to see this part, but as part of the wider area, you can easily pass an hour or 2 relaxing.

You don't have to spend any money to enjoy this beautiful plaza with the iconic bandstand in the middle, but there are so many tavernas and coffee bars around that you're spoilt for choice for refreshments.

On one side closest to the fort is the Bosketo Garden, where there is a monument to Gerald and Lawrence Durrell; the zoologist and the author, who spent their... More

You can spend a quiet day, full of history, right in the heart of Corfu Town. All you have to take on you is a bottle of water and a cell phone camera to capture the wonders that will surround you.

In heart of town. Big, green open space where even locals also come spend their time. In daytime it is full of tourists, cafes and restaurants are classy but highly priced.

Very beautiful green space in the middle of Corfu town. Close to landmarks such as the Old Fortress etc. Very busy with Greek locals and visitors. Lovely to take a walk, or ride on a horsedrawn carriage.

Thank MCPK
