Corfu, well known for its contrasts, its vibrant colours and its variety of sightseeing has been a destination for carefree relaxation since ancient times.

Corfu is among the most beautiful and popular islands of Greece. Due to its strong historical connection with Europe, this was among the first Greek islands to open to tourism. Located on the north western side of the country, Corfu island has a cosmopolitan feeling combined with a special traditional character. Paleokastritsa, Sidari, Kassiopi and Acharavi are nice tourist places on the northern side of the island, while the inland is dotted with lovely villages and many sightseeings. In addition to the wonderful beaches, the highlight of the island is Corfu Old Town with the characteristic Venetian style.

'Corfu town is Venice and Naples, a touch of France and more than a dash of England, apart of course from being Greek'. In the beautifully preserved Old Town of Corfu, a UNESCO world heritage site, Renaissance, Baroque and Classical “repertoire” came to be successfully applied to local artistic traditions.
Palaces, fortresses, austere public buildings of the Venetian rule uniquely blend with lines of drying washing in tiny alleyways and small secluded squares. Strolling through a complex of narrow cobbled streets with stairways and vaulted passages, the so-called “kantoúnia”, will make visitors feel as if they’ve travelled to Genoa or Naples.

The nearby island, known as Pontikonisi (Greek meaning "mouse island"), though small is very green with abundant trees, and at its highest natural elevation (excluding its trees or man-made structures, such as the monastery). Pontikonisi is home of the monastery of Pantokrator, it is the white stone staircase of the monastery that when viewed from afar gives the impression of a (mouse) tail which lent the island its name: 'mouse island'. Visitors should not miss this opportunity to tour the Achilleion Palace, built by the Empress Elizabeth of Austria in 1891. View her breathtaking gardens as well as a spectacular panoramic view of the Ionian Sea. The Achilleion Palace also houses the Terrace of the Muses, which was built as a tribute to the nine muses of Greek mythology.

Due to the successive dominations of the Venetians, the French and the British over the centuries, the island has primarily become part of the Western rather the Levantine world. Their culture wielded strong influence in the city: it was here that the first Greek University (the Ionian Academy), the first Philharmonic Orchestra and the First School of Fine Arts were founded.

Corfu is one of the liveliest islands in the Ionians and offers a great variety of bars and night clubs. Corfiot cuisine is neither spicy nor bland, but rich in the flavours of the Mediterranean. It is steeped in history and tradition. Specialties consist of local ingredients found on the island, especially olives, lemons, vegetables, tomatoes and fish.
Corfu's little known golf course is one of the 19 greatest championship courses in Europe. Located in the Ropa Valley, this 18-hole golf, par-72 course, designed by Robert Trent Jones, with its excellent clubhouse and restaurant, combines the natural landscape of the area with well thought out hazards, making it a fine course for players of all standards.
Corfu is popular for her music tradition, starting from the 'Songs' in Greek called 'cadades' and reaching until the famous 'band', which accompanies the litany of the Epitaph on Good Friday. In the morning of Good Saturday, according to the Corfu tradition, the residents of the Old City throw pitchers with water from the balconies which symbolizes the 'first resurrection' of Christ. The town is known and for her Carnival, which is accompanied by parades in traditional costumes. Finally, the kitchen of Corfu is famous for the «pastitsada», the «sofrito», the «bourdeto», the «nougat» and the «pasteli». The local products include the bergamot (for sweets and liqueurs), the gruyere cheese and the butter of Corfu, the olive oil and oregano.

Kassiopi village is one of the most beautiful and well known resorts in Corfu, where visitors return year after year. It is a coastal, picturesque village located on the North-East coast of Corfu. A place that combines mountain with sea, green with blue, new with old, tranquillity with liveliness, the locals that make you feel welcome and important to them, it fulfils the needs of all ages with many choices for day or night. Kassiopi is situated on the north east coast of Corfu at 36 kilometres from Corfu Town and is surrounded by lush green slopes of olive trees and charming little bays.
It’s picturesque amphitheatre shaped port, it’s well preserved church, it’s cosmopolitan finesse, it’s deep blue and hospitable shores, the sight of the huge Byzantine fortress that looms over the village as well as the varied and affordable choices of bars and restaurants will enchant it’s visitors.

Kassiopi was named after Cassius Zeus, a god worshipped mainly in the East (Syria and Egypt). To this day it has not been confirmed who the first inhabitants were, that transferred the idolatry of Cassius Zeus to Kassiopi. Some believe that this happened in 281BC from Piros, the king of Epirus. Others believe that this happened in 168BC when, Kassopi a town in Epirus was destroyed by the Romans and the inhabitants sought refuge in Corfu, where they built Kassiopi. Yet others believe that Kassiopi started flourishing from Homer’s time.
