Corfu – or Kerkyra is the second-largest and the greenest Ionian island. It is also the best known. It was Homer’s ‘beautiful and rich land’, and Odysseus’ last stop on his journey home to Ithaki. Corfu is located on the western side of mainland Greece and has an especially green and lush interior, with endless wild flowers, thriving olive groves and vineyards, many tall Cypress trees and endless dreamy, secluded beaches. Corfu remains one of the most beautiful of all the Greek islands and is a leading tourist destination in its own right. The Old Town, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007, is a labyrinth of narrow streets paved with cobblestones and packed with tourist shops all selling pretty much the same things: wooden toys, soaps, olive-wood carvings and embroidered fabrics.
