Corfu Holiday Bargains
A Corfu holiday offers the visitor a beautifully green, fertile island where the Greeks have embraced tourism more than anywhere else, whilst still hanging on to secluded monastries and sleepy villages.
Corfu Town attracts thousands of daytrippers in search of shops or culture and they are rarely disappointed. Hidden down narrow cobbled streets are museums full of art treasures, archeology, even coins.
Among the other attractions are fortresses, and the renovated Palace of St.Michael and St. George which was once used by the Greek royal family.
British influence can be seen around the Esplanade where cricket matches are still played on the green.
Trips to the top of Mount Pantokrátoras provide spectacular views to Albania and, on the clearest of days - Italy! The reward for reaching the summit is another monastery!
When you go on a Corfu holiday you should try to go on a boat trip. Trips offering sight-seeing tours of the island depart from just about every resort on Corfu.
