The visitor that will wander around the city of Corfu, the suburbs, the communities and the greater area of the Municipality of Corfu, will have the chance to discover the 'dowry' that nature and man gave to Corfu.

The 'Old City' recalls past ages; the European influences are visible everywhere and harmoniously coexist, giving to the city a special color. There are no mosques and minarets in Corfu. No stamp of Asiatic occupation can be found on the island. Here that Europe meets Greece and the nature ungrudgingly spread hundreds the shades of green and blue, the Corfiot Civilization developed with significant particularities that make him stand apart.

Maybe, in the high summer, the narrow streets of the city, named cantunia, are crowded, but for the visitor there is always a quiet place in the narrow alleys or under the shaded squares to enjoy a chilled ginger beer. The Corfiot housewives suspend their laundry over the streets and underneath, lost in the labyrinth of the alleys, the visitor discovers the workshops of silversmiths and woodcarvers.
