what to do in corfu while on cruise

By visiting Corfu there are many things you can do depending on your mood and taste!

Here’s the first time you’re in Corfu on a cruise and have a few hours to wander. We have some food for thought for you:

Attractions: The first thing to visit is the old fortress of Corfu that dominates the most central square of the island, the Espanada Square. From there to its highest peak you will have the opportunity to take panoramic photos of the old town of Corfu. Continuing on, we recommend the Liston Square replica of the Rue de Rivoli with plenty of coffee and restaurant opportunities to enjoy a delicious aromatic coffee and snack to continue your ride. Continue along the picturesque alleys of Nikiforos Theotokos and the bustling canton of Saint Spyridon. The Byzantine architecture will reward you by strongly reminiscent of the narrow streets of Venice too, so here’s your chance to buy souvenirs for your loved ones.

Otherwise, if you are more alternative we suggest a swim in the beach of glyphada west of the island on a short journey as it is only 20 minutes from the center of Corfu (Depends on the traffic) and get to know one of its most beautiful beaches. chilling sand and calm warm waters (most times) Naturally combining your walk on the beach with a refreshing cocktail from the bars that are right next to you. Closing your cosmopolitan ride your transfer will be waiting for you to let you safely and tan back to your ship.  ttps://www.travelco.gr/shore-excursions/leisurely-small-group-tour-of-corfu/13

There is also the third option wherein consultation with the driver and the hours you have available can be just as good a visit to the beach of Paleokastritsa with unique caves and crystal clear waters. The landscape here is greener and more exotic! You will definitely want to rent a boat and see the magnificent caves in the area,or just for a dive in the beach paradise which is only accessible by boat.

Closing your excursion, your transfer will take you to the monastery of  Virgin Mary to light a candle as the tradition wishes, also to drop a coin in the well of the wishes and to admire the magnificent view of the seaside rocky cliffs. Return shortly afterward to your ship.

For those who want to get to know something different and more local, there are varying activities for a limited time such as a tasting tour! We try local wine accompanied by traditional salty and sweet goodies! Excellent suggestion including food! While your guide will be guiding you when onboard. Corfu is also famous for its local fruit called kumquat which produces excellent liqueur, dried fruits, and jams. As well as extra virgin olive oil!

Concluding activities you can do if you are cruising on Corfu or have a limited time of day we would like to recommend your visit to the old town and then to the old harbor where you can board one of the two boats that sail to Vido small island, an extremely affordable option as the ticket is unexpectedly cheap! On the island, you can walk it from side to side and see animals like pheasants and peacocks! Then, while dipping, you can pinch something from the island’s restaurant and return to the picturesque kaiki (a wooden boat) in Corfu town where your transfer will return you back to the ship. Alternatively, you can visit the glass bottom vessel and see the bay of Vido island underwater!
