Kassiopi Corfu

by lindasmile

Hi,
Me and hubby are going to Kassiopi in June 2009 and were wondering how busy it gets then and is the weather mainly hot. We are stying right on the harbour at Kissimiss pension/hotel. we are hoping to hire from the the local boat place aswell to spend alot of time on the water, would it be worth it hiring a boat for the week, just the little run around ones which can be had from the harbour.

Hi i am resident of Corfu, the weather at this time of year is quite hot with temp around 32-37c, hiring a boat is very good idea although i think 2-3 days is enough a week will be to much, the rest of the days i suggest to hire a car and visit the inner land and other villages. some of the places i suggest is Glyfada, agios georgios, palaiokastritsa, gouvia, and corfu town.

Hi, June in Kassiopi should be wonderfully warm - it is one of our favourite months. We live for much of the year in Roda, just around the bay. If you want to know anything about tours and rentals around the village, just before the junction out of the village, you will find Cosmic Travel. Call in and see Mike or Vera - they've been around Kassiopi for something like 30 years and there's not much they don't know.

Travel Tips for Corfu Island

Hiking - Where did we hike?

by Jerelis

Like we said; during our hikes we avoided the heavily developed areas and meandered through diverse landscapes, up and over mountain slopes, down through olive groves, along lonely beaches and through picturesque villages.

For example we hiked:
North: Kassiopi - Agios Stefanos - Agnitsini;
East: Perama - Benitzes - Achilleio;
South: Mountains surrounding Lefkimmi;
West: Palaiokastritsa - Lakones.

How better to immerse ourselves in the countryside and the culture, than to walk? The ruins of the castle of Gardiki just peeped out of the weeds along a winding road and an old woman lead a slick-laden donkey down a dusty back road. We also witnessed joyful music spilled out from a bayside taverna and old men punctuate their conversation by waving their pipes outside the kafeneio. Hiking is a must do!

Byzantine Museum

by kayleigh06

This Byzantine museum i s actually inside a 15th century Church. Many painters during that time would stop in Corfu whilst on their way to Venice. This museum houses a fascinating collection of their sculpture and art from all the artists that would have passed through here over the times.

Jewish community in Corfu

by mindcrime

Once upon a time the jewish community of Corfu was big but in our days the only thing you can find is a synagogue(pic 2-3). It’s called Sinagoga Vecchia(old synagogue) but the one we see today was built in the beginning of 19th century. The most famous jew of the community was the novelist writer Albert Cohen that was born in Corfu (16/8/1895) and lived there for 15 years before his family moved to Marseille.

Near the new Fortress there is a monument that shows some figures in sculptures(pic 1). It’s called Never Again For Any Nation. The monument was made in November 2001 and it’s dedicated to the memory of the 2000 jews of Corfu who perished in the nazi concentration camps of aushwitz and birkenau in june 1944 by the municipality and jewish community of corfu.
