    Luggage and bags: Not too much,else you won't have any room for souvenirs! Strong cases in case of damage when the greeks throw them around.
    Hand luggage which is user friendly is a must for those extras i.e. change of clothing if the luggage gets lost, which does not happen often unless there are a lot of flights going out/coming back at the same time.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Lots of separates, and light stuff. Good shoes, as the greek streets seem to be made of really hard concrete! If you have to walk very far, you'll find out. One warm jumper, incase it should get cold/chilly in the evenings.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Must take good anti-repellent, as the mosquitos can be unforgiving and once you get bitten, you sometimes (if succeptable) can't stop scratching. If you can find it, MIJEX is very very good "they" seem to really hate it!
    Another good tip, if you can buy some imodium whilst there, do as it's a fraction of the price of the Uk, the equivalent of about 80 pence. Plasters and Savlon are also a good idea just in case.

    Photo Equipment: A good camera and lots of film.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: The usual.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: For summer : just light clothes because it can be hot, about 35 degrees or more. And ofcourse your swimming suits.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Don't forget your sunmilk and something against mosquito's. Otherwise I see no problems.

    Miscellaneous: The pharmacies in Corfu are open during shops operation hours.
    In each region there are pharmacies that remain open in a 24hour basis.
    The closed pharmacies should have a list that would present the nearest open pharmacy, usually in their entrance door.
    You can also take information about the open pharmacies from the Police in the telephone number 100

    Luggage and bags: If you'll be walking around a lot, I advise you to take a light backpack, but don't worry too much about it getting stolen, as it is a very safe place.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Very light clothing in summer for during the day, but you need a sweater for the evening as it tends to get a bit chilly.
    Comfortable sandals if going in summer, so as not to get sore feet from walking a lot.
    Take a light raincoat & umbrella in case of a few showers.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Do not forget mosquito repellant for the evenings, and sunblock for during the day in summer.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Beach: Some beaches are pebbly (photo), and your feet hurt a lot if you do not take the right shoes! I would also recommend you take a mat to lie on, as a towel isn't enough on the rough pebbles.

    Good shoes - if you want to do more walking.

    Miscellaneous: Some agent protecting you from the mosquitos (in the night).

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Take a snorkel to be able to admire the beautiful underwater world of Kerkyra.
    Also it's advisable to take swimming shoes as Kerkyra's beaches are chiefly rocky.
    Of course you can buy everything what is needed on the island - but it'd be more expensive.
