    port: free shuttle bus to cruises

    by Aitana Written Sep 9, 2012
    1 more image

    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).

    Crossing to Igoumenitsa
    4 more images

    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 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.

    Who wants to steer a ferry?

    Who wants to steer a ferry?

    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!

    No need for a car here

    Walking all around outside Corfu town

    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.

    Once a day bus

    by pisces1954 Written Oct 27, 2007

    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.

    Kerkyra Port to Italy use domestic terminal

    by bluegoat Written Apr 21, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Travelling with (young) kids.

    by Jerelis Written Jan 2, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    General:
    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."

    Plane:
    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.

    Car:
    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!

    Finally:
    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.

  • How do you call an aeroplane in the sea?

    by MariaK Updated Sep 22, 2006
    Carefull Mr Pilot!!!

    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!

    Don't rely on public transport!

    by travelthrough Updated Aug 19, 2006

    There are three chances of getting around Corfu: You walk (since the island is big, not really recommendable); you hire a car or take taxis (recommendalbe and reasonably fair prices,
    unless there is a taxometer and you pay more than the actual price is); or you rely on public
    transport.
    Buses are pretty bad, quite wrecky and you cannot rely on the schedule. There are bus schedules connecting big towns, but most buses only go from the San Rocco Square in
    Corfu Town, so it is quite complicated: first getting there from where you live, and then
    to the town you want to go. In winter, buses often don't come or they are 1 hour late.

    Tickets you cannot buy on the bus, but in kiosks and newstands.

    Mopeds!!!

    by adej Written Sep 19, 2004

    There’s a lot to be said about Greek drivers basically if their bigger than you give way to them. It doesn't matter which side of the road you're on!!! We hired a moped for two days and did quite a few miles on it. I swapped it for a motorbike on the third day. Which I found a lot safer. Small mopeds are a bit slow which isn't a bad thing except when it comes to hills! Where you can be basically be forced off the road, that mixed with tiny wheels, makes it kind of dangerous!

    Rent a moped

    Cool Dude

    Mopeds are awesome for this island. I spent a whole day bombing around the island. Of course the roads suck and if you aren't an experienced driver you'll crash and kiss your damage deposit away. What the heck. It's worth it

    Horse-drawn Carriage on the Liston

    I've never actually taken a ride on one of these (just a bit TOO touristy for me), but love to see them trotting around the town. The main starting point for the tours seems to be alongside the Esplanade where the carriages line up awaiting customers.

    Corfu Airport

    by antz Written Oct 7, 2003

    The landing at Corfu Airport is absolutely amazing, and must be watched from the window of the plane. The landing strip is very small and pretty much surrounded by water, so you feel that you actually are going to land in the water! It is very beautiful to fly over the island and then to see this tiny airport, which is incredibly busy!
