Packed with palaces, pretty squares and grand mansions, Corfu town comes with plenty of historic sights. But there are few better than those found in its UNESCO-listed old quarter. Our expert guide will show you all the top spots and most photogenic locations on this walking tour. Eleni, one of our local guides, says, ‘Corfu town has a rich cultural heritage. You can see, hear and even smell how the noble families of Corfu would have lived when you visit the Casa Parlante, a multisensory experiential museum.'Once you meet your guide, set off to explore the heart of the island's capital. Stroll across the stately Spianada – the largest square in Greece – then take some photos of the Venetian fortress and the grand façades of the Palace of St Michael and St George. Eleni says, ‘The Spianada is a very elegant space, bordered on one side by the Liston – an arched arcade designed to resemble the Rue de Rivoli in Paris. The flair of Italian, French and British architectural styles has influenced many buildings in Corfu town.'At St Spiridon's Church, which has the highest bell tower in the capital, you'll encounter deep devotion to the patron saint of Corfu. Since his death in the 4th century, it's said that St Spiridon's shoes still wear out regularly, as a sign of his travels on behalf of the faithful. To round off the tour, find out what life was like for 19th-century Corfiot aristocracy at Casa Parlante museum, which engages all your senses to bring history to life.
