3. Corfu: Historical Old Town Cycle Tour
Our cycling tour at the historical centre and the suburbs is probably the ideal way for families or individual guests to get to know some of the most traditional neighborhoods of the town and admire lots of the hidden gems on this fantastic out of the beaten path, route.
We will start by cycling in the open fruit and fish market, see the vendors trying to sell their freshly cut products and even try some of them. We will then continue cycling around the ”labyrinth” of the narrow alleys of the old town formed between the multi storey 16th century venetian buildings with photo stops at the most historical highlights at a time that the city is still quiet and the temperature still pleasant.
Depending on the mood and physical condition of our group we can ride to Kanoni in order to admire and make photos of the 17th century Vlacherna monastery located at the beginning of the airport lagoon as well as of the planes landing while flying at the same level with us. A few km further we will cycle in the exotic gardens of the famous Mon Repos, the summer resort of the ex royal Greek family, that prince Philip of Great Britain was born at.
After visiting the oldest church in Corfu built in 1005 we will cycle through Garitsa bay admiring plenty of mega yachts as docked haughty and shiny under the morning sun.
As the town is getting busy and the temperature is rising, a last stop at one of the most beautiful and most photographed cafes of the town for a refreshment is the best way to end our tour.For guests who wish to have transportation,it can be arranged with pick up time and cost provided upon request.
