The architecture of the capital of Corfu has been shaped over the centuries, under Venetian, French and English rule. The unique old town has been protected by UNESCO as a World Cultural and Historic Heritage Site. Kerkyra is a city containing monuments and buildings from almost every era. The most ancient ones date back to the 6th century BC. The miraculously surviving pediment of the ruined, majestic Temple of Artemis is the greatest antique find of the 20th century. The first opera house and the first university in Greece were built on Corfu. The city of Corfu has the largest square in Greece, and the Palace of Saint Michael and George houses a collection of significant pieces of Asian art.
We will visit the district of Kanoni, where archaeological sites are located; we will climb the observation deck, which offers amazing views of two small islets, Panagia Vlaherna and Mouse Island, one of the most famous views of the island, its calling card. On one island we will visit the temple; the other island we will go around by boat for a short boat ride and then take the bus to the Old Fortress in the city centre. From this point, the city tour will be on foot. After visiting the Old Fortress and Spianada Square, we will stop near the Palace of St. Michael and St. George and walk through Liston and the cosy streets of the Old Town. After a visit to the Church of St. Spiridon you will have free time (about an hour and a half) to spend in churches, museums, cafes or shops. A visit to the monument to the Russian naval commander Admiral Fyodor Fyodorovich Ushakov, who is particularly revered here for his invaluable contribution to the island's history, will round off the tour.
