Top 3 things to do in Corfu
Corfu Parga – Paxos Day trip: How about spending a day exploring on a boat rather than on a coach? First stop is picture postcard – Parga. This mainland resort rises out of the sea and is set like an amphitheatre, with small pastel coloured houses covering the slopes that surround the small secluded bay. The small harbour and narrow walkways boast some of the finest restaurant and bars. There are plenty of cafes where chairs spill across the pavement and give visitors the chance to sit back and drink in the atmosphere.
Visit Corfu Town: For those who don’t want to explore there is plenty to see and do in Corfu Town which is modern and upbeat. The old town was planned by the Venetians way back in the 14th century and follows the Italian style of architecture with pastel-coloured buildings topped of with the famous red tiles roofs. The town center offers rows of cafes and restaurants, and reflects the look and style of the Rue de Rivoli in Paris. For those tourist who are seeking a look at the past then a visit to the Archaeological Museum in Corfu Town will be rewarding. Another worthwhile visit is to the Museum of Asian Art where you can marvel at Chinese and Japanese works of art through all the main dynasties. The museum also has a selection of Japanese prints, ceramics and sculptures.
Blue Lagoon: All day boat trip: Description Theo is a legend around Corfu and our customers cannot get enough of him. Join us as we sail through the clear waters of the Ionian Sea to the historic caves of Papanikolis, where you can enjoy wonderful views of the lighthouse. The boat will then take you to the Blue Lagoon, where we have time for a cool refreshing swim, before sailing on to the beautiful beach of Ayia Paraskevi. On our way, we will pass many small Islands so keep cameras to the ready.
Corfu Food and drink
Corfu food is similar to that available anywhere else in Greece, but it does have two specialties which appear on almost every restaurant menu. Sofrito is a veal casserole served with a white sauce of garlic, onion, pepper, wine vinegar and anything else the chef puts in to produce his version of the dish. Pastitsáda is another island speciality – veal served in a tomato sauce with pasta but you’ll never get the same around the island as every chef will have his own unique recipe but all will be delicious.
Another feature of dining on Corfu is its international nature. The vast numbers of tourists have created a range of restaurants to cater for them, including Italian, Chinese, British, French and Indian.
