Travel Tips for Corfu Island

John Capodistria, famous Corfiot

by apekovic

Bright figure of the modern Greek history is John Capodistria who was born in Corfu. On the photo you can see the house (with the Greek national flag). Count Ioannis Antonios Kapodistrias (in Greek Ιωάννης Καποδίστριας - Ioannis Kapodistrias, in Italian Giovanni Capo d'Istria, Conte Capo d'Istria, and in Russian граф Иоанн Каподистрия - Graf Ioann Kapodistriya) (February 11, 1776 – October 9, 1831) was a Greek diplomat of the Russian Empire and later first head of state of independent Greece.

This house was built in 1835 by the Corfiot architect John Chronis, the old prefecture is a characteristic example of neo-classical architecture. It is situated in the upper part of the Spianada - northern end of Capodistria Street. The old prefecture stands on the site of the house which is the birthplace of Ioannis Capodistrias, the first governor of Greece.

Kapodistrias is greatly honoured in Greece today. The University of Athens is named "Kapodistrian" in his honour; the Greek euro coin of 20 lepta bears his face, as did the 500 drachmas banknote before the introduction of the euro, and a local re-organisation programme that reduced the number of municipalities in the late 1990s also carries his name. The fears that Britain, France and Russia had of any liberal and Republican movement at the time, due to the Reign of Terror in the French Revolution, led them to insist on Greece becoming a monarchy after Kapodistria's death.

To have sandwiches or not???

by Jerelis about Vegera

Right after we parked the car we tried to grab a lunch. At a local bar called (we believe, can't remember proparly) Vegara, we tried to order some sandwiches. The owner tried to explain us in his best English that the sandwiches appear on the sign of the bar, but he didn't sell them! Bit of a weird situation, we guess. The owner stood next to our table and all of a sudden he went back into the kitchen and came back with 2 frozen pizzas and told us that this was the only thing he sold which could be eaten for lunch! So 20 minutes later we had 2 hot microwave pizzas on a plate! Well, with a nice cold beer it did taste okay :)

Right after this historical lunch we had a walk through this largest town southern of the city of Corfu. We passed a picturesque canal which divides the town into two. Lefkimi has two striking churches to visit. One is the Agios Theodoros Church facing the main square and the other is the Agios Arsenos Church with its orange dome. Pizza!

Pontikonissi - Inhabitants love to promenade.

by Jerelis

We crossed the Halikiopoulos Lagoon and finally reached the Vlacherna Monastery, which is the centre of the Kononi peninsula. We concluded that this location probably is one of the most charming parts of the island of Corfu and is the place where all the island's inhabitants love to promenade.

Pontikonissi lies at the southern end of the Kanóni peninsula and managed to retain its beauty despite the proximity of the airport runway. In this same peninsula you'll find the island of Vlacherna and the convent of the Virgin Mary with its pretty Venetian belfry. Do consider that Vlacherna and Pontikonissi must constitute the most photographed view of Corfu and therefore it can also be a massive tourist trap. But because of the fact that we were so early we didn't notice any tourists (yet).

Moraitika was first inhabited in the 16th century by refugees from the Peleponese. The remains of a Roman villa have been found in the area, and the center of the old village is very picturesque. Benitses is an old fishing village eight kilometers north of Moraitika. Between these two villages, there are two fine beaches, Agios Ioannis Peristeron and Tzaki. After Benitses, the restored remains of the Kaisers Bridge jut out into the water.
