City Tour


Magic Corfu is a walking tour in the centre of Corfu town. We are going to walk through the alleys of the city and we will see the hidden "treasures" of Corfu.

We will also have the chance to walk through the popular Liston, an area where only nobles used to walk in the Venetian period. We will see Saint George and Saint Michael's palace which was built by the British and is now housing the Asian art museum of Greece. We will see the Old and the New Fortress and we will admire the three different types of architecture: Venetian, French, and British!

We will walk through the narrow alleys and see some other monuments like Saint Spyridon's church (patron Saint of the island), the City Hall, the Duomo and the area of Pinia.

Itinerary

We are going to explore the small alleys in the Old town and see some significant monuments from the Venitian, the French and the British period.

A Recent Review of this tour

Georgia provided a beautifully crafted private tour of Corfu, complete with private car. Georgia is a warm, friendly, comfortable to be with, lovely and gracious lady who definitely loves Greece and knows a lot about it. She was instant family for a gorgeous tour at my own pace, and I saw all that I had hoped to, plus time to just enjoy life in the fine Greek tradition. Would highly recommend a tour with Georgia any time! Fabulous experience.
