  • When we go to Corfu we are of course curious to do this little crossing, however once inside we stay hungry. It's really tiny and it does not offer a truly transcendent view. Small positive point the crossing costs that 2e50, if you are curious that don't break the Bank.

The Byzantine Chapel of XI-XII centuries is on top of the island and has a commemorative plates, reminiscent of visit of the Empress Elizabeth of Austria and Archduke Rudolf in the year 1800.

  • A small island with a delightful aroma of pines. Do not inhale. A tiny Orthodox Chapel. A modest café with water, coffee and ice-cream-for rest in the heat. A good place for photos of airplanes, which very often pass close by.
