Holidays to Corfu Town whisk you to the island’s thriving capital. Here you’ve got a UNESCO-listed old town, plus glam shopping and top-drawer nightlife.
Cruise & Stay holidays to Corfu offer you more than meets the eye. Sure, it has picture perfect beaches and a world-renowned night life, but did you know Corfu Town is home to a UNESCO Heritage Site?
A rainbow of colour
The Greek island of Corfu is known as the Emerald Isle thanks to the olive trees and green hills that flourish in the Mediterranean climate. But it’s an island of more colour than just green. The hilltop view across Corfu Town is a rooftop blanket of sun-drenched terracotta, burnt reds and oranges all the way to the glittering blue Ionian Sea.
Bookended by two impressive Venetian hilltop fortresses, you'll find the cobbled streets of the UNESCO-listed old town. Visitors might feel compelled to visit Mon Repos Palace, where the Duke of Edinburgh was born. But for ancient history buffs, St Spyridon’s Church is where to go to visit the mummified remains of the island’s patron saint.
Dining and shopping
Corfu Town offers the island’s best shops and boutiques. Spend hours meandering through the town’s streets and discover a mix of high-end outlets and souvenir stores. To rest weary feet, seek out a shady pavement café for a refreshing drink or meal and watch the world go by and the cruise ships go past.
Those enjoying Corfu Town’s impressive heritage by day might like to venture further afield by night and sample some of Corfu’s epic nightlife. This includes the vibrant bars and nightclubs of Kavos on the south coast that stay open until dawn. Or opt to stay in Corfu Town, and enjoy a drink or two at a romantic cocktail bar followed by a stroll through the charming winding streets.
