Cities of the World CORFU Greece
Corfu is different from the other Greek islands. Instead of dreary, rocky terrain, one can find lush flora, pine trees, lemon and olive trees. This is the place where Odysseus met Nausicaa, Queen Elizabeth built a palace and where Gerald Durrell fell in love with nature.
The capital was mainly built by Frenchmen during the reign of Napoleon, this is why it suggests a Mediterranean spirit, as if we were walking on the French Riviera. Near the capital, there is the symbol of the island, the Vlacherna monastery, standing in the water.
Corfu is filled with natural beauties. Kassiopi is a charming fishing village, while Paleokastritsa is a place famous for its sea caverns. And finally, there is the Channel of Love in Sidari, a channel formed by whimsical cliffs.
