There’s just something about the Ionian island of Corfu. It might be the rolling hills covered with emerald Cypress trees, or the rugged coastal cliffs studded with luxurious resorts, twinkling in the ever-present sunshine. Located just off Greece’s northwest coast, Corfu shares much of the cuisine and culture of the mainland, with some British, French and Venetian influences mixed in. On one of our Corfu cruises, you can pick your own adventure: wanting to soak up the sun? Head to one of the island’s beaches, such as Longás (also known as Perouládes). Surrounded by red rock cliffs and with views out to the Diapóndia islets, it’s the perfect spot to catch the sunset. Elsewhere on the island, you’ll find diverse architecture to admire on Corfu cruises. The Palace of St Michael and St George in Corfu Town dates back to 1819, and is now the home to the immersive Corfu Museum of Asian Art. The Palaio Frourio is built in a Venetian style, and sits atop a headland to the east of Corfu Town. It’s enormous and sprawling, comprising a lighthouse, bridge and a gatehouse which contains the Byzantine Collection of Corfu. A leisurely stroll up the hill and around the grounds is the perfect activity for a balmy early evening.
