Corfu Town (Kerkyra) is a UNESCO heritage site. It features wonderful history including Byzantine, Venetian, French and British influenced architecture, two fortresses, a port, churches and museums, as well as great shopping opportunities in the narrow streets which wind around the town. Bordering the main square and opposite the original cricket pitch and the Durrell Gardens, you will find the famous Liston Arcade with its trendy cafés and restaurants. At right angles to the Liston is the palace of St George and St Michael which now houses the Asian Art Museum. At the other end of the square, past the bandstand, is Garitsa Bay which leads round to Mon Repos, Prince Philip's birthplace. Behind the Liston you can see the rose-coloured dome of the church of St Spyridon, the island's patron saint. Corfu Town is also a culinary delight with a fabulous variety of Greek and Corfiot restaurants, tavernas, bistros and pizzerias. You should also explore the daily fish and vegetable market, especially if catering for yourself - the choice is always fresh and vast. No visit to Corfu would be complete without time spent in Corfu Town. Regular bus services operate from the port to both the north and south providing easy access to all parts of the island.
