In this full day tour we will visit Corfu, the second largest of the Ionian Islands, and the most famous of them. The island’s history is laden with battles and conquests. The legacy of these struggles is visible in the form of castles punctuating strategic locations across the island. Two of these castles enclose its capital, which is the only city in Greece to be surrounded in such a way. As a result, Corfu’s capital has been officially declared a Kastropolis (“castle city”) by the Greek government. Corfu was long controlled by Venice, which repulsed several Turkish sieges, before falling under British rule following the Napoleonic Wars. Corfu was eventually ceded by the British Empire along with the remaining islands of the United States of the Ionian Islands, and unification with modern Greece was concluded in 1864 under the Treaty of London. We will start our tour with a visit to the old citadel, which is an old Venetian fortress built on an artificial islet with fortifications surrounding its entire perimeter. We will continue our tour with visit in Saint Spyridon church, and Liston where most of the restaurants and bistros abound. We continue our excursion with the island, known as Pontikonisi (Greek meaning “mouse island”).
