Corfu is one of the Ionian Islands which nestle off the West side of the Greek mainland.
The Old Town of Corfu has its roots in the 8th century BC. The three forts of the town, designed by Venetian engineers, were used to defend the maritime trading interests of the Republic of Venice against the Ottoman Empire. Corfu’s city is notable for authenticity and is a world heritage. Spianada Square is the main square of the island and the central meeting spot for locals and visitors. It was constructed to resemble the European Royal Gardens and it is the largest square in the Balkans.
