Corfu town is one of the most interesting cities in Greece due to the heavy influence of the Venetians who for centuries controlled the island. Like the other Ionian islands Corfu was never occupied by the Turks, which gives it a character very different from the rest of Greece.
But Corfu town has seen other influences as well including the British, the Normans, the French, and the Greeks and Romans whose ancient buildings are still in evidence in several archaeology sites and the excellent archaeological museum. The population of the town is about 30.000 and is quite cosmopolitan compared to the other Greek islands.

It is an interesting mixture of old tavernas, new cafeterias, discos, clubs and shops of all types plus an amazing old city that sits in a protected area between the two fortresses.
The town really resembles an Italian city though their are other influences such as the Liston, the building which borders the main esplanade or Spianada, built by the French, which houses some of the finest cafeterias and restaurants in Corfu island.

On the esplanade itself the men compete in weekend cricket matches, the only place in Greece where the sport is played. Corfu town has well-developed facilities for tourists.
There are numerous hotels to stay & even various B&B options. There are several interesting museums in town and two major fortresses as well as numerous small squares and fountains. The town itself was built so that it could be defended. The buildings in the old city remain intact and wandering through the narrow streets is like a lesson in history and architecture.
