Corfu Town is the versatile capital of Corfu. Restaurants, bars, clubs, markets, high-end shops and historical sites all sit side by side in this city of many faces. It's home to two beautiful beaches, a huge central park, a towering fortress and modern shopping and eating district. The capital of Corfu, this beautiful city is divided into many different parts. There's an old fortified town with ancient winding streets, a bustling market area, a luxurious commercial area, a romantic marina and, by night, a fantastic party scene.
The Old Fortress that sits high above Corfu Town is famous for having withstood three Ottoman sieges. Today it stands proud and tall, and is open to visitors of the city daily.
If you're lucky, you may even get to join in with one of the many great events now held in the fort, including live music, dances, banquets and public speeches. This makes a great spot to watch the sunset from, with views high over both the old and new districts of Corfu Town.
Below the Old Fortress lie the many winding streets of Old Corfu Town. Here you'll find excellent photo opportunities, as well as the buzzing atmosphere of the central market.
The market in Corfu Town is famous. Loved by locals and visitors alike, here you can buy a whole range of Greek delicacies, homeware, hardware and clothing to take back home with you. You can also stop for a bite to eat at one of the fantastic local tavernas open daily around the market.
