Detailed Description

 

Corfu’s history goes back a long way, with a first written reference being dated to around 1300 BC. The island also figures in the Odyssey, Homer’s famous Epic, under the name of Scheria. Her inhabitants were the Phaeacians and Ulysseus himself was said to have been stranded here just before his return to Ithaca. In ancient times, and due to its strategic position, the island was conquered and colonised repeatedly.

The Corfu Arcaeological Museum, first built in 1967 and having recently undergone a massive restoration and reorganisation, houses a multitude of artifacts and finds from various sites and digs around the island. Well worth a visit, it documents, through its exhibits and information, Corfu’s rich prehistoric and ancient history. Some of these artifacts are the pediment of Artemis’ temple, the Lion statue of Menecrates, and many finds from the ancient town of Palaiopolis and its agora, harbors, houses, sanctuaries, workshops and cemetery. There are also finds from other parts of the island in the North.

Join our Corfu Archaeological Museum Tour for a deep look into the prehistoric and ancient history of this island that played a significant role in many battles and was once the third most powerful naval power of the 5th century.
