Take a Corfu Town holiday with The Co-operative Travel, and the history of this remarkable city will unfold before your eyes.
Stepping into Corfu Town, you're treading a path well worn by generations of British holidaymakers - but on a holiday with The Co-operative Travel you'll have plenty of opportunities to discover its enduring appeal. The British influence on Corfu dates back to well before tourism took hold, though, and has helped create today's cosmopolitan town which has shops, cafes, bars, tavernas and nightclubs to suit everyone.
Walking through the old city allows you to discover the myriad of architectural joys and appreciate the Italian influence which remains so prevalent, especially the Theatre of San Giacomo, an Italian Renaissance delight.
The Spinada or esplanade is home to a characterful complex of multi-storey buildings with its series of arches which serve as a traditional meeting place and somewhere you can play 'spot the location' as it has been used as a setting for many films and television shows.
Food in Corfu Town will spoil you for choice, but the locally-caught fresh fish should not be missed, especially in one of the specialist fish restaurants of the Garitsa on the waterfront.
Nightlife is varied, with brash clubs and discos concentrated along the main road north out of the town, while more relaxed and romantic tavernas and small restaurants are clustered around the seafront.
A package holiday or all-inclusive holiday from The Co-operative Travel will open up the island's natural delights to you, while offering plenty of chances to enjoy the remarkable natural setting.
