This information may be useful for those who go to Kerkyra by cruise.
There is a free shuttle bus between the cruise pier and the customs and passangers terminal building.
When you leave this building, you can take buses to the old town and to the city center.
Some cruise lines don't give this information, instead they sell you a bus ticket to the center (8€ one way).

Ordinary ferries (this photo) are open type and perform the crossing in 1 hour and 45 minutes.
Larger boats with covered parking areas perform the crossing in 1 hour.
Flying Dolphin cross in 40 minutes.

When we crossed from Igoumenitsa to Kerkya, the weather was misty and that gave a mysterious look to the coast north to Igoumenitsa (BTW, may be I should have better put the tip on my Igoumenitsa page!).
These photos were shot around the mouth of river Thiamis, north to Igoumenitsa.
I took a series of photos that amazingly might have been shot as well in Scotland!

The first photo shows the quay before departing
The second photo shows the view just after sailing.
The third photo is a little further
The forth photo was taken far enough to show the whole city with the old fort on the right.

Small ferries cross the Corfu channel from Kerkyra to Igoumenitsa. I might have steered one: look, there is free access to the steering wheel, no one telling you that it is forbidden, then why not trying to steer one of those ferries!

In Corfu town, whether you are staying in or around it, there is no need for a car. We walked everywhere and made the 30 minute trip into the Old Town every day even in the blistering nearly 90 degree weather.
The Corfu bus system is just excellent and easy to use to connect to different resorts and attractions of the island and cheap to boot.
The ferries as well can be boarded just near the Old Fortress in town and are also priced reasonably if you want to go to other islands outside of Corfu.

There is a bus (10.30 am) that takes you out of St Georges to Corfu town and returns at 15.30 costs 1.50 Euro each way problem is if you miss it. There are hourly buses from the "cross roads" but they are a 45 min walk from the resort. Plenty of opportunity to rent cars, scooters and quad bikes though and they are fun for the sand dunes at the beach, but i bet at the height of the season these quads will be a pain in the rear at the beach.
Transportation on foot is a great way to discover the the area.... walking through olive groves and woods to make your way to the village in the mountain is brilliant.

Although you'd think Italy would be an international destination you wait in the domestic terminal at the port for the ferry. When I caught the midnight boat from Kerkyra to Brindisi a bus picked up at the domestic terminal and drove 2km to the far end of the terminal where the boat was docking.

Are you nervous about taking your baby or child on a plane trip? You aren't alone, most parents are nervous about it. We have moved with Iris to Corfu by plane this holiday and drove some distances by car on the island itself and we learned a few things that hopefully will help you.
Bring books, old favourite toys and new surprise toys. Do remember that balls are not a good idea as they can end up anywhere! Our best buys were definitely books, especially sticker books are great! They can peel the stickers off, are glossy, have thick pages to turn easy, have bright colours and come in endless subjects. They're a nice break from the other books your child might be tired of, too. Put aside fears of setting poor eating habits, and bring on the snacks! We told Iris: “Welcome to the world of boredom eating."
If your child is big ask for earplugs as soon as you board the aircraft. Make use of them for take-off then save them for landing as the crew may not have any fresh ones left by then. Also let them eat candies, this helps the kids tremendously if they don't know how to pop their ears.
Toy bars meant for stroller use are a big help in the car, as they often feature toys plus a snack cup, and are big and easy for you to grab from the front seat for refills. During the car trip it’s always a good idea to play a game and sing some songs. It sounds rather easy, but it does work!
We only have one last statement! Just do it! Don’t be afraid that it might go wrong. We have learned this, because we have been travelling with Iris from the beginning. She was only 6 weeks young when we had our first short vacation and stayed in a hotel. Iris has been used to it rather fast and (maybe because of it) has always been an easy kid to get along with.

When you come to Kerkyra by plane, and when the "fasten your sitbelts" lights turn on for landing, check the view through the window: are you gonna dive into the sea? ARE YOU? A question that is always asked in travelers' minds and each time remains to be answered :D
My photo #2 shows a real plane landing in front of our eyes. I can not send a dart on the board, it seems they always get out having their own will, so this landing project seems unbelievable to me!
Mr Pilot you are a hero!
