To take a walk through Corfu Town, is to take a walk through history. Great empires and civilisations have passed from here leaving their stamp, and influencing the soul of Corfu. It’s all there for you to discover and find out more about.
Join us on the Corfu Historical Tour and take a leisurely stroll through time. Follow in the footsteps of the Venetians, British and French where they left their cultural and historical marks and shaped the character of this unique town. Peel back the layers of the city’s multicultural influences and discover this gem of a medieval city, together with all of its historic little secrets. Our well informed and eloquent guide will walk you through each one of the important sights and monuments, like the imposing Old Fortress, with its sturdy butresses and ramparts, tunnels and towers and reconditioned cannons dotted all round. Look out from the walls towards the sea and imagine armadas of old preparing for a siege.
Each empire left evidence of its presence, not only in symbols and buildings, but also in the customs that have shaped this islands psyche, and made it what it is today. A historical “playground”, through which to take a pleasant walk, while getting the necessary information and background to appreciate it in full. Another example of the way the various empires left their “footprints” on Corfu, is the total lack of any town planning. Hence we walk through ever narrower alleyways, that suddenly open out onto oddly shaped plazas, often with a Venetian well in the center, or a bougainvillea framed wall along one side. Plaques abound with inscriptions in Latin, noting important moments in the history of the town. Street names commemorate those who shaped the island’s history.
If your wish is to “put your finger” on the pulse of Corfu while enjoying an exciting walk through its landmarks and discovering the rich heritage that it carries, the Corfu Historical Walking Tour is the choice that will make your “wish come true”!
