The island of the Faiakes, in the best season, is full of festivities and awaits you for a most special Easter, welcome to Corfu
Staying in the city of Corfu is full of options depending on tastes of every visitor. Υπάρχουν διαθέσιμα από ξενοδοχεία λίγων δωματίων σε παλιά αρχοντικά έως υπερπολυτελή ξενοδοχεία και πιο ήσυχα και απομακρυσμένα καταλύματα, όλα στην διάθεση σας. The available options range from bed'n'breakfasts with just a few rooms in old mansions to luxurious hotels to quiet and remote accommodation, all at your disposal.
Eating out in Corfu offers a range of choices large enough to suit all appetites. The city boasts posh restaurants with special dishes to traditional kitchens. Dishes range includes Italian, Mexican, European and, of cource, Greek specialities.
The narrow alleys of the old town offer numerous choices ranging from a quick pint to all-nighters. Cafes, bars, live music with meze joints, and of cource clubs will make your nights unforgettable.
The town of Corfu is inarguably an ubiquitous monument. The old town, apart from an UNESCO monument, features two impossing fortresses, while the still in use old mansions are scattered everywhere.
The city has a very large number of mostly Christian Orthodox churches, which carry priceless historic, cultural and religious value. Extensive care has been given to preserve these, as some date back on the 16th century.
Musical tradition is one of the key charasteristics of Corfu. The island features a litany of such companies. Their loud and integral presence during the Easter festivities makes the Corfiot Easter a lifetime experience.
Corfu was amply gifted by God with unique beauty. Turquoise crystal clear beaches, silver-green olive groves, picturesque villages of unparallel architectural character, the singing-like villagers' dialect and all these just about 10 kilometers away from the city. The Corfiot countryside will leave you speechless.
Corfu produces and manufactures several products that demonstrate how blessed the island is as well as the craftsmanship of Corfiots. Some of the local business date back decades add to the character and economy of the island.
The Corfiot cuisine is rich in aromas and flavors. The character of the flavors is intense and sophisticated with spices having a dominant role. Local recipes will surely leave you with an indelible memory on your palate.
Corfu Town is a small place that gets overcrowded during the Holy Week. Parking your car anywhere central can be a strenuous task. Add the festivities into the equation that block a few, to say the least, or require a few empty roads and you've got a tough case to crack. These parking places may well prove to be the place you left your car the whole of your vacation.
Getting access to internet can be crucial in our days. As carriers charge such access over cellular networks, while in case of roaming charges are even worse, wifi-hotspots are a very good solution. The town of Corfu sports a litany of places offering such services. Remember though to 'consume' responsively as really 'getting away' on vacation means NO peeking at work emails and such spoil-sport activities. Relax, rejuvenate and really get away.
