Corfu Town: Express Walking Tour

4. Corfu Town: Express Walking Tour

Follow us on a journey through time, via gardens, monuments and buildings in the Old Town of Corfu! First stop is the beautiful garden of the Durrells. Here there will be a storytelling session recounting many tales of the Durrell’s exploits and adventures on the island. Then admire the British Palace of St Michael and St George, relax in the flowering gardens and maybe even fall in love…it is the ultimate meeting place for lovers. Walk with us along the French street of Liston, the most popular pedestrian street of Corfu. Admire the imposing square with its many cafes and see the socialites enjoying their daily gossip. Admire the richly decorated Orthodox church of Agios Spyridon, the patron saint of Corfu and reportedly a miracle worker. If you are lucky, you may see his holy relic, which is worshipped by Corfiots on many occasions throughout the year. Walk with us through the city’s mysterious and romantic sidestreets and alleyways but be careful not to get lost. It is quite easy to lose your bearings and go around in circles in the warren of little streets. Don’t worry though, wherever you end up, the Corfuting team will be nearby. Last stop is the Town Hall Square, the main square of the city during the 400 years as a Venetian protectorate. Admire Corfu’s unique baroque building, the San Giacomo, built in 1669 as a meeting hall for Venetian officials, and converted in 1720 into a lyrical theatre. All the great opera performances of Europe were presented here until 1903 when a larger theatre was built as the San Giacomo was not sufficient for the ever-increasing number of spectators. You have just enjoyed a small but concentrated taste of the city and culture of Corfu. Thank you!

What people are saying about Palace of St. Michael and St. George

Once again I use this form of city sightseeing and I was not disappointed. It is a pity that there is no Polish audio guide, but when you fly to a country, a paper-based guide is indispensable. Ladies at bus stops nice and helpful. High frequency of courses.

Comfortable, reliable and suitable for quickly visiting the city with its attractions that otherwise would not be possible in so few hours ... thank you

HopOn/Off is great for the first days in Corfu, as you can drive to some of the sights and have them explained to you.

The bus was there on time. We learned a lot of interesting facts. Any time

Buses were clean. Headphones worked on every seat we took.
