Corfu Town is right on your doorstep
Just a 20-minute bus journey away, Corfu Town awaits your visit. This lively city is full of fun-packed activities, including beachside fun, huge clubs, lively bars and a bustling market for all your souvenir shopping needs.
Above the pretty capital sits the Old Fortress, a Venetian structure which has defended the island of Corfu from three Ottoman Empire sieges. This historical monument to the island’s fascinating past attracts many people young and old to walk around the fort, and learn about how this amazing island became what it is today. After this, you can go and grab a bite to eat at one of the various international restaurants in the city.
Public transport connection to and from Ipsos is good, so you can stay out as late as you like and still be sure you’ll get home safe and sound, ready to do it all over again tomorrow.
Eat incredible fish at neighbouring Gouvia
Gouvia is just 10 minutes down the road from Ipsos, and it is here that you will find some of the best fish on the entire island. Built from the remains of an ancient Venetian naval base, Gouvia now specialises in fishing high quality seafood and bringing it to the local restaurants. So if you want a memorable meal, head on over there.
Once in Gouvia you’ll be able to take your pick of the many local beaches, among these are great opportunities for even more water sports as well as massive stretches of sand upon which you can rest and catch a tan before heading back to your holiday home in Ipsos. If you’re feeling energetic, you can walk back down the coastline, passing the idyllic Dassia resort on the way.
