Corfu is so darn charming!
I felt the most of that European charm in Corfu than anywhere else in Greece.
I knew that Corfu is somewhat different from other Greek cities.
Later on I found out that Corfu never fell under the Ottoman oppression making their influences distinctive from the rest of Greece.
It’s very tranquil too!
We went here during winter when tourists are not all over the place. Then again, we traveled to different parts in Greece sequentially, and still I found Corfu to be the most temperate.
We really missed a lot of beautiful locations in Corfu given that we went there off season. We tried to go and see one beach destination, but it was so dead and everything’s closed that we didn’t even get to explore it. We only saw glimpses of it from the bus.
But of course I (we) can get really stubborn when it comes to travel exploration. We walked an extra mile to taste a bit of Greece’s pristine waters.
Gorgeous! Just gorgeous!
With time on our hands, we mainly circled around The Old Town.
We visited the Old Fortress.
We climbed the top all the way to the lighthouse.
There, we got a bird’s eye view of the city center.
We also took the bus and got to Achilleion. I’ll save that on a later post.
Our hotel was conveniently near the Vlacherna Monastery.
Granted we came here during Winter, but I was still completely charmed by it. What more if it was during summer season?
Last Call …
Tell me, do you have any good off season travels?
