The Area: Corfu
Sunning itself in the Ionian Sea, Corfu is known as one of the greenest of the Greek islands. Outlined by evergreen landscapes, olive groves and fragrant citrus or orange trees, the island’s coastal patches have become a place of pilgrimage for tourists seeking to indulge in the Mediterranean sun and crystal waters.
In Corfu City, visitors can stop by the Palace of St Michael and St George, which plays host to a collection of Asian artworks spanning Chinese ceramics, Japanese prints, and Indian sculpture. Other cultural gems can be found in the city’s Old Town district, whose foundations date back to the eighth century BC and whose buildings present a characterful Venetian architecture, belying an Italian influence that shines through in much of the island’s delectable cuisine such as the famous Souvlakia or meat sticks, and the lamb and rice dish called Giouvetsi.
