About Corfu




From every point of view, Corfu is the most western region in Greece. An island known worldwide as a tourist destination, with undisputed natural, historical and cultural wealth, it has attracted travelers from all over the world, has generated timeless schools of Fine Arts, has demonstrated how sublimely green and blue can combine. Besieged by many nations, it has been governed by the Venetians, the French and the British, who always coveted its economic strength and its strategic geographical position. Greece is often described as standing between East and West, but this applies even more to Corfu, which, whilst maintaining its Hellenic origins, has enriched them with western influences.
