Things to do in  Corfu

Welcome to Corfu

Steeped in Greek mythology and made-for-Instagram vistas, the northernmost of the Ionian Islands is equal parts historic wonder and island getaway. Forest-cloaked cliffs sweep down to crescents of white sand, where turquoise waters tempt swimmers, water-skiers, and paragliders, and cruise ships depart for surrounding islands. There's no shortage of things to do in Corfu, from exploring whitewashed villages, ancient Greek temples, and Venetian fortresses, to visiting the UNESCO-listed treasures lining the tangled streets. Escape to the olive groves or work up an appetite hiking Mt. Pandokrátor—Corfu's Mediterranean cuisine is another highlight.
