Choose a cooler part of the day. It's a hot walk to the top. 6 Euro entry and kids are free. Plenty to see and with amazing views of the old town from the top.

The entry gives you false hope unfortunately. Once you’re past the modern bit it’s all uphill and not an easy climb especially the last part. H&S in UK would close this one down. For those not steady on their feet it’s definately not for you....More

At only €6 each it's worth every penny, the Fortress is amazing, so much history and the views are amazing. Lots of areas to explore and each one has something new to see. You can just imagine the Venitians from 1402 building and living within...More

In Corfu for a couple hours waiting on cruise ship, we wandered through the town and came across the fortress. A good walk up to the top, good views across the town and coast. Cheap too.

I would say about 5 minutes, I got some beautiful pictures of the church and there are some lovely restaurants just outside to enjoy a coffee whilst visiting. The interior is amazing, enjoy!!!
