Travel Tips for Corfu Island

Clothing and shoes

by SandiMandi

If you're going to Corfu in summer, all you really need is sunscreen, a pair of sunglasses and a swimming suit. :)

If going in September or later in the autumn, also bring a sweater/fleece or a light jacket as it can get quite chilly in the evenings. An umbrella would be useful, too, as it tends to rain.

Comfortable shoes are important, too. There are lots of paths for hiking on the mountains, so comfy shoes are essential! Unless you want to spend all your holiday by the hotel pool, which I don't recommend, 'cause there's so much to see in Corfu!

small cafe

by mindcrime about café MAD

I was desperate for an omelet but mr Spiros(the owner) informed me that the kitchen wasn’t ready yet so I couldn’t try the omelet(4e) that was on the menu.

So we took coffee (2e for cappuccino, 1,5e for greek or espresso), cold chocolate (2,5e) and the local lemonade which is called Tsitsimpira (3e). By the way, I don’t think I will drink lemonade soon after Corfu, I had one per day while usually I drink one per year :)

The tables outside were great, we relaxed for a while after miles and miles of walking and I had the chance to visit the small church of Ag.Sofia which faces the café. The funny (at the beginning) and annoying (at the end) thing here was the silly greek music that was playing non stop from inside the café. I can imagine some locals come here at the evening to drink but definitely not my choice :) They also serve beer (3,5e for a pint) but I didn’t get any as I prefer to listen to rock n roll when I drink beer :)

pontikonisi / kanoni

by mindcrime

This is one of the most popular touristic spots in Corfu, you can see the area in many postcards, web pages and guidebooks.

First we drove up to Kanoni spot and parked our car. The view from there is breathtaking because you have the famous Pontikonisi island and the Vlacherna monastery in front of you (pic 1). There is a pavilion that works as a small café there but also many restaurants at the back street where you can have tasty local food.

Kanoni (canon in greek) took its name same from canon that still can be seen there (pic 2) next to the pavilion, it was this spot where the French in 1798 set up the battery of artillery.

Vlacherna Monastery (pic 3) was built in the 17th century, a simple white building with an impressive wooden altar and some paintings. The church is dedicated to Panagia Vlacherna. The monastery (for women) operated here until 1980. Actually, it’s just a tiny islet, 300meters away from mainland. You can walk along the small jetty to reach it or take a small boat (the fare is low, about 3 euros) from there to Pontikonisi island. I know it gets packed with tourists but on early april it was tourist free :)

Pontikonisi (mouse island) is a tiny full of green (pic 4) islet that is also known as “the island of Ulysses” (Odysseas in greek) because the legends says that Odysseas crashed here on his way back to Ithaka or (I like this one more) that it was the ship of him that was transformed into stone by the god of sea, Poseidon.

You can walk up the starway, enjoy the nature and the view of course. The island houses an old byzantine church dedicated to Christ Pantokrator (it was built at the end of 13th century). During King Othon's era a monastery was built with a church dedicated to Sotiras. It celebrates on August 6, the only day that you worship there, the other days you can visit the islet for a while and return back (it’s a natural museum, so the masses of visitors would destroyed its beauty)

More of Corfu Town

Here is a view behind the fountain, of our cricket team in action, I have to tell you that I do have a photograph of one of the team members, fielding in the CAR PARK.
Yes, unbelievable but absolutely true.

This is in the centre of Corfu Town

photo joanj

The cricket pitch is to the left of the picture , the seating area is from the cafe's and restaurants from across the road, although if you care to buy food and drink, you could take in a match for free.

A lot of English touring teams visit the island for cricket matches.

This area is called The Liston.

"The Liston area"

So this picture is of the buildings, mainly restaurants etc., on the right hand side of the picture above. Quite a few of the cricket balls have ended up among the patrons here, I am not sure if this still happens, or if there has been some kind of netting put in place to prevent this happening.

Anyone out there in Corfu land, who is interested in cricket, please e-mail and let me know.
