The antiquities of Mon Repos.
In the gardens of Mon Repo, apart from the palace, are the remains of important antiquities. This region, according to the archaeological findings, was the center of Paleopolis. This ancient town lengthens from Anemomilos to Kanoni and used to have two ports. The port of Alkinoos and the Illaic port. Three important antiquities that the visitor can see are: the remains of the basilica of Saint Kerkira, built in the beginnings of the 5th century on the bases of the roman conservatoire. In its entrance are saved two fluted pillars of Korinthian rhythm. Despite the catastrophes of the temple, many parts of it, sculptures and mosaic, are saved.
In the region of Paleopolis is located the best saved ancient temple in Corfu. It is a small temple of Doric style dated from the 6th century and is consisted of 11 pillars. According to the local tradition this temple was dedicated to Poseidon. But the archeologists believe that it was dedicated to Asklipios or Apollo.

Corfu-one extreme to another.
I travelled to Kavos with my mate and it was his first holiday abroad. I left the girlfriend at home and had a lads hol. We had flights with Monarch airways and stayed in a hotel sold to us by Olympic holidays. Kavos is a place to go to if you don't expect much in the way of paradise and quality, but want to get hammered every night and sleep most of the day. We enjoyed it for the first couple of days as there's tons of bars and clubs and you really are spoilt for choice. However, after the first couple of days we both got fed up with the fact that the beach was dirty and the place smelt of sewage in places and generally was a real mingin place. Basically, in Kavos it's all fried breakfasts and English pubs etc. with no quality at all in eating out or anything to do other than get smashed every night and wake up feeling ill, just to be made to feel worst by the stale smell around the resort. I'm not very fussy whn on holiday and will usually adapt to where i am and accept it for what it is or how much i paid. I wouldn't reccomend staying in Kavos. If you were a few miles up the road in the little villages and towns such as Lefkimme, you get a more pleasant stay and you could easily go into Kavos for the night. There were lovely traditional Greek tavernas out of Kavos and only 1 or 2 in Kavos. When i go on holiday i like to try the local food and get away from the burger and chips. So this was another dissapointment. It's good to have a KFC or mc Donalds, incase of a fussy eater or if you really don't seem to get on with the locals food, buit generally we didn't use the fast food places although there are plenty in Kavos. You don't need to explore Kavos to find anything hidden. Pretty much everything is on one main road/strip, with a few smaller roads leading off it. I reccomend the quad bike hire. This cost me 45 euros for 3 days and cost about 6 euros in fuel for the 3 whole 3 days riding. We managed to get out and explore away from Kavos, found some great secluded beaches and more traditional places to eat. Just be carefull, as the locals drive fast. You'll be fine as long as you don't get over confident and start speeding up little windy roads. One thing that really put me off Kavos was the attitude. Whilst we were there we did meet some lovely people, but they all agreed the same thing, that most of the people there were 17-20 year olds and most acted like drunk little school kids with a bad attitude and wanting to get lairy with everyone. I'm still young at 27, but felt old and annoyed at the common attitude of the younger people there. We did get very drunk pretty much every night in Kavos and do have some great memories of some excursions like our boat trip. For nightlife, fantastic, for food-rubbish, for attitude-bizarre and for the young and sinlge wanting to pull-meat market.
"When to go and not to go."
We went the last week of september, and i don't reccomend this. Greece enters it's rainy season towards the end of sept., start of oct. It really did poor. The first 3 days we had 29 degrees sunshine with cool evenings, then the next 4 days monsoon. It was so bad at one point people were coming out of clubs and surfing home on lilos. After 2 days of continuous thunder storms and tropical downpours that literally didn't stop for even 5 mins over the 4 days the water in some places in the town was up to waist level and was a bit more than annoying. The week after we left we found out on the news that people had been drowning as a result of getting really drunk and thinking it'd be a good idea to jump into the sea unaware of the huge currents from the pooring storms rain water flowing back into the sea. I'm sure if you went in mid summer you'd be absolutely fine and even in september, just choose the start of the month. Another bad thing about the end of sep. is the fruit from the trees(lemon and limes) was falling and this attracted the most wasps i've ever seen. The size of our hornets this at first was very offputting but the locals said just ignore them and they won't bother you. It was hard to do so but you get used to them and despite them being absolutely everywhere they never bothered us and noone i knew there got stung. Generally go out to Corfu mid may to mid september.
