Discover incredible history in the Old Town
The Old Town provides a journey into history. The Liston, an arcaded pedestrian street built during French rule in the early 1800s, was modelled on the Rue de Rivoli in Paris and is a good place to start your exploration. From here, walk to the Spianada – the largest square in Greece and, arguably, Corfu’s liveliest spot. It’s opposite the old Venetian Fortress, a peninsula castle built during the 18th-century occupation of Corfu. Next, stroll the narrow alleys of medieval Campiello, to admire the tall, narrow Venetian buildings or visit some of the museums in the area, including the living history museum Casa Parlante and the Corfu Museum of Asian Art.
