Often called "Kastropolis" because of its majestic Venetian castle, Corfu Town once featured such extensive fortifications that a force of over 20,000 soldiers defended them.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Marathias Beach and Church of Saint Spiridon. Venture out of the city with trips to Paleokastritsa (Paradise Beach & Corfu Donkey Rescue). And it doesn't end there: explore the striking landscape at Kaiser's Throne, head off the coast to Pontikonisi, enjoy the sand and surf at Issos Beach, and explore the historical opulence of New Fortress.

Plan my Corfu Town trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Getting from Amsterdam to Corfu Town by flight takes about 3.5 hours. Other options: do a combination of car and ferry; or do a combination of train, bus, and ferry.
