Information of Corfu
Pullmantur Cruises will take you on board the Venetian Rondo to the northernmost island and the second most populated in Greece, Corfu Island.
The island is divided into three parts because of the tortuous geography and mountainous areas. Small and very green valleys, coasts with small and big bays full of olives are abundant in the north area. The south area is the most fertile but it has less vegetation as it is narrower. And if we go to the central area, we will see it covered by hills and lush vegetation.
The capital of the island, Corfu, is one of the most beautiful cities of Greece and it is built in the centre of the island, in the same spot as the old town, and it preserves part of the fortress located very close to the necropolis.
The island combines the enjoyment of beautiful beaches and clear waters with cultural tourism. You will enjoy the monumental fifteenth-century Venetian fortresses when you get lost in the narrow and medieval streets. And you must go for a walk along the Port Avenue, close to the wall, and watch the panorama of the city with the castles, the old and the new one. These fortifications give Corfu a different touch compared to the other Greek islands.
Another of the most exceptional places is the village of Kanoni which has natural and beautiful spots.
The island also hides other beautiful places that you can explore such as the Paleokastritsa Bay, known as the Capri of Greece and famous for the incredible sunset that you can see from there. It is so beautiful that seems unreal.
