Travelling on Corfu

by jacko34

We are arriving by ship to Corfu. How far is the Old City of Corfu from the ships arrival point?. How would we get to Kassiopi as you have made it sound well worth a visit.
Thanks

Assuming you take a ferry to Corfu, aim to land in Kerkyra - this is the Greek name of Corfu. The old town is within walking distance from the port.

The ship will almost certainly arrive within walking distance of the old town. To get to Kassiopi you will need to get a bus (avoid taxis - they are very expensive on Corfu). The buses for Kassiopi leave from the square which is very easy to spot when walking from ships to the town. Be aware, the buses on Corfu stop running at about 1800 hours, so make sure you check the return times.

Kassiopi is very pretty, but if you are not averse to walking from the main road, then it is worth getting off at St Stefanos where Gerald Durrell's White House is, and walking down the steep hill. It is a beautiful place with lovely tavernas and a cracking beach.

Travelling on Corfu

by INSULARIUS

The Old City of Corfu is around 500 metres or 1 km. from the ships' arrival point.You do not specify, whether are you travelling on a cruiseship or in a passengers' ferry, because they sail from two different (distant) points.

If you have no luggage, you can get to the Old City on foot, but if you have a heavy suitcase, it would be better to take a taxi: it will cost you: 3 Euros.

Kassiopi is a very picturesque village-resort on the northern-western part of Corfu, but is very faraway from the City of Corfu.If I do remember well, it should be around 35 kms away and you will need a bus, which you will catch from the Interurban Bus Station of Corfu.Itineraries are not very frequent: last year, because I wanted to visited Kassiopi and get back to Corfu on time, I was obliged to catch an early bus at 06:00 in the morning!The scenery will reward you!

Travel Tips for Corfu Island

Sinarades - An ancient Greek village.

by Jerelis

Sinarades is an ancient Greek village that has been forgotten by tourism. It is situated in the middle west of Corfu Island and clings to the mountainside, with an almost Alpine appearance. A cluster of graves and other graves scattered around the area dating back to the Roman age leads to the conclusion that this area might have been and ancient village during the Roman conquest. The village at its current location was built between the 10th and 11th century by the inhabitants of a seashore village which was abandoned because of the terrible and repated attacks of the Sarakin pirates. When we arrived at Siranades it was immediately clear to us that it has had its moments of flourish and decline. We were told in advance that this is an village that is not to be missed, which is true!

So, the beautiful view aside, what makes Sinarades so worthy of a visit in our opinion? It's a truly traditional, rural and peaceful village where the ladies still wear traditional dresses and use their donkeys on a daily basis.

Address:
Village of Sinarades

Directions:
Situated at the middle west side of the island. It is a 25 km drive from the capital of Corfu, Corfu Town.

Pink Palace Activities

by seasonedveteran

The pink palace get an A+ from me: pretty cheap and the rooms are amazing for a hostel. And you dont have to worry about where you can get nutrition with your tourist pennies; they feed you breakfast, and dinner! And it has its private section of the beach. Also, it offers activities and fun, such as a boat cruise, quad safari seeing the best sites in the surrounding area, its own disco, and toga night!

Be forewarned though, the boat cruise may offend the woman, since it becomes sexually offensive at times, to say the least. Also, i think 99 % of the guests dont leave the confines of the pink palace. Not myself! pink palace offers quads, so i got on on my own, as well as going on the group safari, and leave the palace to get a scooter. Needless to say, i saw quite a bit of corfu. My favourite experience is driving the scooter at top speeds on the riverside drive heightened over the water on the oceanside highway.

TIP: get A rooms; they have air conditioning and a good view of the ocean! dont settle!

Statue of Costas Georgakis

by mindcrime

Between 1967-1974 we had a military junta in Greece, a right-wing “government”. VT isn’t the right place to analyze such issues but as we had a dictatorship you can imagine how beautiful was the life for some people (especially the left ones) during that period, cant you?

Many people tried to escape to save their lifes and those who managed to go away tried to fight to overthrow the junta by informing the media and raising awareness among the people of other countries in Europe.

Costas Georgakis was born in Corfu in 1948 and that period he was a student in Genoa, Italy. What he did was that he burned himself to death on September 19, 1970! :( Two months before he gave an interview to Genoan magazine where he was talking about the brutalities of the greek junta etc
The sign says: “burned himself to death for the freedom and democracy of Greece” 19 september 1970
And has his quote: “…I cannot do other than think and act as a free individual”
