What can I expect in Corfu?
Corfu Town, also known as ‘Kerkyra’, stands halfway down the Corfu’s east coast. The name Corfu, meaning ‘peaks’, refers to its twin hills, each topped by a massive fortress built to withstand Ottoman sieges. Sitting between the two peaks is the Old Town, a collection of winding lanes, some bursting with fine restaurants, lively bars and intriguing shops, others are quieter, where the locals reside, washing hangs from lines and shutters keep the sun out.
The official language spoken in Corfu is Greek. However, you'll find that a lot of people can speak basic English, especially in the popular tourist areas of the island.
Spring and Autumn are the best times to visit Corfu. Conditions are perfect between Easter and mid-June - the weather is pleasantly warm in most places, but not too hot. Beaches are relatively uncrowded, and accommodation is cheaper and easier to find than in high season.

With a spectacular coastline, verdant hills and an enjoyable climate, the beautiful island of Corfu has much to offer holidaymakers. As well as its spectacular scenery, Corfu is a cultural hub with fascinating history, majestic architecture and vivid artwork.
The town has many museums for those who would rather absorb Corfu’s culture than lay by a beach all day. Visit the Sinarades Folklore Museum for an authentic flavour of Corfu’s past, the Olive Museum to learn how the island’s heavenly olive oil is produced and Mon Repos Palace, Prince Phillip’s birthplace, which is now a museum displaying extensive artworks, statues and historical treasures.
