Plaza
“Esplanade and Liston, Between the Old Town and the old fortress" is the esplanade, a long green square that is a remnant of the Venetian fortifications in the 17th century. During the French occupation of Corfu at the turn of the 19th century the esplanade was planted with trees, while the cricket pitch is a holdover from the British period that followed. Also dating to that time is the Maitland Monument, a Neoclassical peristyle, with 20 Ionic columns around a rotunda, commemorating the Lord High Commissioner Thomas Maitland. The Liston, on the Esplanade’s western boundary is an elegant arcade, also from the French period and designed in the style of the Rue de Rivoli in Paris. ”

Beach
“Possibly one of the busier areas of Corfu Island, Sidari has a little gem that you should definitely see. Just shy of the town itself (to the west) is Canal d’Amour, one of Corfu’s most unique spots. Local folklore says that couples that swim through the channel will get married very soon, making it a perfect spot if you’re waiting for someone to pop the question! ”

“If there’s only one spot you visit in Corfu, make sure it’s Porto Timoni, which is my favourite beach and coastline on the island. If you’re arriving by car, park up in the village (or just outside) and take the 20-minute stroll down to the beach itself.”

“No visit to Corfu is complete without a wander around Corfu City (even though it’s more like a pretty small town). Make sure you wander around the UNESCO World Heritage protect the old town and see if you can spot any of the historic Venetian houses that are still standing. Also, keep your eyes peeled for the Statue of Georgios Theotokis, the Liston, the Old Fortress, Spilias Square and Saint Spyridon Church (the patron saint of the town). With all that exploring, head over to The Venetian Well for yummy food in an idyllic setting (the lamb is delicious).”
