In this guide we will follow the cultural elements of the island and we will present its unique sights and attractions. Follow our guide and your holidays will be unforgettable. Let΄s begin...

Old Fortress

The modern name "Corfu" is the Latin version of the Byzantine word "Korypho" and means "city of the peaks", referring to the two peaks of the Fortress. It was built in a strategic location, which the Venetians converted in the 15th century to an island by creating an artificial moat called "Contrafossa".
