The old village of Afionas

Afionas has one of the most impressive views on the island. Perched high above the coved Aghios Georgios North, this traditional Greek village offers an absolutely incredible lookout over Aghios Georgios North's wide bay and the cypress trees and olive groves beyond. Afionas was originally inhabited by people in the 6th century BC, and is now one of the island's most loved places, with peaceful squares and ornate churches.

Alternatively, you could make the half hour walk down to stunning and secluded Porto Timoni. Here you'll find historical ruins, first built in the year 300 BC. Nowadays, excavations are still underway to understand what the people in the area were like all that time ago. Each time you go, more and more of the old ruins are uncovered and further truths exposed.

Let loose in Sidari

If you're after a wild night on the town during your holidays to Corfu, then you must visit Sidari. Bursting with bars, restaurants and clubs, Sidari is the hub for entertainment on the north side of Corfu. You'll find magic acts, impersonators, live music, quizzes, hypnotists, bingo, karaoke, cinemas and sports. By day or by night, Sidari is the place to go to let off some steam and meet like-minded people.

Plus, there are a large number of street food joints and great restaurants, with a range of local and international cuisine at your fingertips. Almost any cultural menu is available in this curious town, with many of them open until well into the early hours for revelers who need to soak up the night's festivities. You'll be able to get back to Aghios Georgios North by taxi, or public transport, if you've not hired a car.

Tour the Corfu brewery

If you love ale and you're in Aghios Georgios North this year, then you're lucky enough to be right next door to where it all started for Greece. Corfu Beer was the first brewery to make real ale in Greece.

A guided tour around the brewery is something not only beer-lovers should get in on. It's a great opportunity to learn about the science of beer brewing, and see how different cultures go about creating their unique recipes. If you're a regular visitor to the Hellenic Isles, you'll have noticed Corfu Beer's selection sold around Corfu and other areas of Greece.

If not, you'll soon be recognising the familiar bottles going to and from tables in restaurants, and you'll come to love their hoppy tastes. You could try the full range during your tour, stock up your hotel fridge, or take some home to friends and family.
