Hidden Secrets of Corfu | WalkingTour


#slow&smart #likealocal

 

 

Picked up from Corfu Cruise terminal you and your guide will head towards the old town, on a deluxe minivan/minibus. You will be dropped off just in front of the second-largest square in Europe, Spianada Square from where you will start walking into the oldest quarters of Corfu Town. Campiello, part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is an atmospheric labyrinth of narrow, winding streets, steep stairways, and secretive little squares. It's here where you can admire some of the finest, most well preserved and original, Venetian architecture on the entire island!

You will also visit St. Spyridon church, St. Patron of Corfu, whose relics are kept and visited daily by believers who acquire the protection and intercession of the saint. You will retain the impressive frescoes at the church's ceiling, divided into seventeen parts with golden frames, and painted initially in 1727.

Your exploration will continue deeper into the town's secret little corners until we will lead you to the Old port of Corfu. There, you will hop on a caique and sail to Vidos island which stands on a distance of only half a mile. Vidos is an unspoiled green islet, uninhabited and  protected by the Greek law. (There was an idea to become a bird sanctuary due to a big number of pheasants, but the idea was abandoned) In our days the island still hosts a big community of pheasants and wild rabbits which you may meet while exploring its wonderful green paths. You will discover the former juvenile reform school where nowadays the boy scouts’ camps stand. There you wil also discover the mausoleum dedicated to the Serbian victims of WWI.

The small wooded paths lead to the island's only restaurant and coffee shop where a refreshing glass of Ouzo along with some typical Greek meze will wait for you (a cold refreshment will be served to children under 18 as a replacement of the Ouzo).

Relax and enjoy the overview of Old Corfu Town which lies in front of you.

The caique will get you back to the Old Port, from where your guide will walk you back to the port.
