Village near Paleokastritsa
Photo 1 : Narrow and steep passages allow to climb on top of the village where thee is a nice view on the sea.
Photo 2 : the alleys are so narrow that in some places, the concrete staircase that lead to a houses stand almost in the middle of the way!
Photo 3 : When it is too steep, the alley turns into an actual staircase that turn on itself like a cork driver!
Photo 4 : another steep alley with the sea in the background.
Photo 5 : there is however one almost even alley. May be we can even name it a street !
Corfu - Greece at it´s best
"Corfu is one of the best spots in Greece"
My boyfriend and I have been travelling Greece quite a bit, and we decided that Corfu is a great place for Greece-newcomers. The size is great for a 7-14 day stay, its landscape and nature holds both lovely beaches and forrests. the island is good for mountainbiking, hiking (Corfu trail!!), diving / snorkeling, etc. The inhabitants are, like most Greek, very friendly and openminded, even old people welcome you and like to chat with tourists.
"Kerkyra - Corfu city"
The capital of Corfu is corfu town or "Kerkyra". It´s a beautiful old town, and the ancient houses and the castle overviewing the bay tell you stories about the long history and tradition of this place. Lovely coffee houses and restaurant mark the hotspots in town, and on holidays and Sundays, they are crowded with all the Greek inhabitants that want to "see and be seen" like in every other European town. In the old city centre, you also find all kinds of shops. Don´t miss the market days and visit the castle. This town definitely is worth a visit (or more!).
"Beware of the weather"
Corfu is known as on of the "greenest" places of Greece. Mind you, that means, there can be some RAIN too!! Summer is mainly dry, but there can be rain in some weeks of the year, check the forcasts and typical tourist informations in your travelling books. We had a phantastic day in pouring rain, though, wearing a simple rain cover we bought at the market. We looked like walking tents, but we had the fun of our lives. So always make the best of it. And enjoy the GREEN of the island (especially the forrests), and the great climate too.
